Welcome to the RC-Editor homepage.

The Boss RC-600 and RC-505mk2 loop stations are awesome, but neither have a desktop editor that allows you to manage your memory locations, system settings, and audio loops.
...so we created one for you!
click below to download the RC600 / RC-505mk2 editor.

Get the Editor

NOTE: this website, the developer, and the software are in no way affiliated with Boss/Roland. This editor was created because there wasn't an official one. We have no control over how Boss/Roland write their configuration files (memories/system etc.) Although we endeavor to ensure that everything works as expected, please use your common sense and back-up your system drive regularly.

Easy Edit

Edit your memory locations and system settings with ease...no more back-ache!


Memory Manager

Easily paste settings into multiple locations with the click of a button.


Create Backups

Backup all your system, memory, and loops with the click of a button!


Manage Audio

Manage your loop audio with import, export, cut, copy, paste, and play functionality


Set Lists

Quickly drag and drop memory locations to create, and load from set lists.


Easy Edit

Stop scrolling through confusing menu items

Although laid out to mirror the RC-600 & RC-505mk2 menu system, the desktop editor allows you to easily update memory and system settings.
I've coded the editor screens to be both functional and intuitive, with easy "revert" functionality if required.

Use drag and drop to re-order memory locations, and right click on locations to rename, or reset to factory!

Download the Editor

Memory Manager

Use Memory manager to copy settings between memory locations.

Using this tool, you can quickly update multiple memory locations based on your current workflow. Reset Assigns, Mode button configuration, or any other setting!

If your looper is available on your network, you can also use this screen to bulk "push" changes to your hardware.

Easy Backup and Restore features

Single click backup creation and feature rich restore options!

It's always good practice to back-up regularly, and the RC-600 / RC-5050mk2 editor makes that easy with its backup button. You also get a great restore feature that allows you to choose exactly what you want to load!

Audio Manager

Listen to, import, export WAV files between locations!
You can even use the editor to bounce down tracks while you're offline (which is very cool)

The audio editor allows you to do all the stuff you want to with your WAV files. It detects the WAV file properties and will prompt if you need to provide tempo information.

The audio editor will also auto-convert 8,16 and 24bit wav files to the required 32bit 2 channel, 44100hz format (including the 512kb padding requirement!)

Setlist Manager

Do you just have loads of songs?

Got a last minute wedding gig...Use the setlist manager to curate your memory locations making it easy to tailor your gig to your audience!

The setlist manager also makes it easy to manage your song templates or just use them to catalog your creative ideas!

Frequently Asked Questions

Nope. This software is not affiliated to Boss/Roland. It was created by John (Moose) Taylor, an RC-600 user who also happened to be an application developer.

Yes, just select Mac when you download

Everyone is free to download the software and try it out, but you will find that the save functionality is disabled. You need to visit my payment provider page to purchase.
You will then be emailed an unlock code that you enter in the app to unlock

Nope, One licence, regardless of whether it's Mac or PC, or what your looper is. The software detects if your RC-600 or RC-505mk2, so can easily switch between them

All good, One licence, regardless of whether it's Mac or PC
