Boss RC-30 Looper Pedal | HELPPPPP PLEASE!
So for those who have a Boss RC-30, or don't but somehow know a solution to this, I have a problem... I turned on my Boss RC-30 and wanted to record on my pedal I just got. So I click the left pedal.. I realize that when I click it again, I'm not making any sound at all with it. THEN I NOTICED... the mini red light next to my mic input level isn't on. The rest of the other lights are on, but not this. I check if I have phantom power on. Yes it's on because I have a AT2020 Condenser Microphone with a GLS 25 foot XLR Cable. But even with the mic plugged in, it's not detecting it. So I remove the XLR cable and wiggle it around the input.. and sometimes at a certain spot, the red light turns on! What do I do? I JUST BOUGHT THIS AND I'LL BE REALLY DISAPPOINTED AND SADDENED TO SEE THIS BOSS RC-30 ALREADY BROKEN W/O EVEN EXPERIENCING THE USE OF IT...
To see what I'm talking about exactly, go to google and type in boss rc-30. Look at the front of it and where it says Mic on the top right, it has a mini circle that should turn bright red when a mic input is plugged in. As I already said though, in my case.. it doesn't.. need a fix please.. anyone that knows the problem..
thank you and God bless!

It might be a bad cable, either in the input or output. Try using a different cable for the output. If that doesn't make a difference, try using another microphone cable. A cable tester is well worth the relatively small price...

Usually when I have a problem like that and I'm sure everything's hooked up properly, it almost always turns out to be a bad cable.
