In addition to the MIDI and jack connections, the RC-202 features connections for microphones and instruments, plus a convenient stereo aux input for connecting more mainstream devices such as MP3 players. The built-in XLR mic input allows you to connect your microphone directly to the unit itself, perfect for beatboxers or vocalists who use their voice for looping.
