  • RC-50 Paul Hanson Custom Loops

    This download contains 15 stereo WAV files that you can load into your RC-50 and use as phrase loops. The files are organized into five folders, with each folder containing three WAV files. The files are named so that they will load into Patches 90-94 in the RC-50.

  • RC-50 System Update Version 1.01

    This is the latest operating system for the RC-50. This update adds the ability to change the Playback-start Operation. Please refer to the "RC50 Update ReadMe.pdf" for the update procedure. Please refer to the "RC-50AdditionsOM.pdf" for this version's additions to the Owner's Manual.

    NOTE:The update files that you download and save to your computer from the link above are enclosed in a compressed zip file. These files will need to be extracted from the zip file before you can burn them to a CD.

    You can do this by using the WinZip application on your PC running Windows XP, or by using Stuffit Expander on your Macintosh (needed for OS 10.2.x or below). If you're using Mac OS X 10.3.x or above, then you will not need Stuffit Expander.

    When you double-click on the downloaded file that you saved to your computer, WinZip or Stuffit Expander should startup automatically. If you do not have WinZip (PC) or Stuffit Expander (Mac) installed, then you must download it, install it, and extract/unzip the update files folder before you can complete the update procedure.

    You can get WinZip from here.

    You can get Stuffit Expander from here.
