The release of the RC-600 had already been discussed on the Forum. At the time it was mentioned, I indicated I would reserve my opinion of it vs. the Aeros until the manual was available. Well, now the manual is available.
My feeling is that it is not going to be the be-all, end-all looper that many of the soundscape users here want the Aeros to be. However, I also think it benefits Singular to see what the competition has produced since the Aeros is still a product under development. Maybe there is something in the 600 that we’d like to see in the Aeros.
The fact is that Boss produces finished products that get very few subsequent updates. What you buy is what you get. For most of their products, they keep producing drivers for a good number of years to keep the product relevant. With the Aeros, Singular is still working some things out.
Some had mentioned that the built in rhythms and the ability of import a rhythm could be a something that “kills” the BB/Aeros combo. I don’t see that. As best as I can tell, the 600 will only allow one rhythm pattern to be loaded. This does not match the BB’s capability of having multiple song parts. That’s just one example.
Providing info about another product is not a slap at Singular. Many folks here have other loopers than the Aeros, and use them with their BB products. And there have been plenty of questions on this forum along the lines of “how can I use this Singular product with this non-Singular product.” Even the idea of using the Aeros with another looper has been discussed.
So, I apologize if getting information and becoming educated rubs you the wrong way.
