Serial Play Style – loops play one after the other like the Rang™ Plus
Serial Master Play Style – In addition to playing loops one after the other, there is a cool type of sync in the Serial Play Style where two loops can play simultaneously. If loop 3 is recorded first, it will become the master loop, otherwise it’s just another loop and there is no master. If loop three is master, it can play along with the other loops. So at one time you can play loops 1 & 3, 2 & 3, 4 & 3, but not 1 & 2, etc. Loops 1, 2 and 4 will be created so they are a multiple of the length of the master. For example, if master loop three is 4 seconds long, the other loops will be 4, 8, 12, 16… seconds long.
– Here’s the purpose. For serial style loopers it’s nice to have a rhythmic background behind the melodic loops. Mute the strings and record a short “chika-chika” or beat on the sides of your acoustic axe. This rhythmic master loop can then play along with any other loop.
Sync Play Style – all loops can play simultaneously and are synced so they stay together
Free Play Style – all loops can play simultaneously and are NOT synced; this is great for creating ambient soundscapes

3 or 4 loops – your choice
Stacking – “stacking” is adding a part to a loop
Undo/Redo – the last part stacked can be muted, then played again or rerecorded
Erase – loops can be erased one at a time or all at once; one loop can be erased while another plays
Copy Loop – a loop can be copied whether it is playing or not
Copy Live – this enables “re-sampling” and is very powerful; the pedal’s output is routed to a new loop
Octave – loop plays at half speed and an octave lower
Reverse – loop plays backwards
Once – loop plays one time through then stops or if already playing, it stops at its end
Fade – loop fades in or out with one button press; fade time can be 3 to 43 seconds
Reverse Solo – this is a built-in effect and enables you to create reverse leads live
Two Sample Rates – 48KHz or 24KHz, both use 20 bit samples; through signal is always 48KHz / 24 bits
Thru Mute Function – turns off through signal
Expression Pedal Volume Control – plug in an expression pedal for foot control of playback volume
Loop Playback Volume Knob – this is always available to set loop playback volume
Decay Rate Knob – sets the rate at which earlier parts fade when new ones are added; continuously variable from 0-100%
Stereo or Mono – recording and playback will be stereo or mono depending on which of the Smart Jacks you use
Smart Jacks – the Rang™ III senses which jacks are being used and provides different signal routing options
The Boomerang® III chassis is the same wedge shape as the original but smaller. It’s footprint is 6″ (front to back) by 9″ (side to side) by 2″ tall, and weighs less than 3 lb. The MSRP (full retail price) is $559, but your local dealer can do much better than that.
