Only "official" mention of Boss RC-300 firmware 1.10" I can find is here

https://www.roland.com/us/support/knowledge_base/115002272686/

Vers. 1.05 and 1.10 are identical Versions.
Vers 1.10 was made for internal documentation of hardware adjustments/changes and is unrelated to the System Firmware.





RC-300: ERROR - TOO BUSY AND SYSTEM VERSIONS 1.05 / 1.10

RC-300: ERROR - TOO BUSY and Versions 1.05/1.10

The Error Definition for the TOO BUSY ERROR is as follows:
The RC-300 could not process the data completely.

Possible causes and solutions are:
1. Lower the performance tempo.

2. WRITE/Save the current content to a phrase memory and WRITE/Save more often in work flow.

3. Reduce the number of adjustments or changes made with the RC-300’s knobs and pedals.

4. Reduce the number or size of MIDI messages transmitted to the RC-300.

5. Ensure that the phrase is not shorter than 1.5 seconds.

The best advice is to try and WRITE/SAVE more often, the system memory is limited.
Unfortunately live performance doesn't always allow for moments to WRITE/SAVE but you'll have to find moments when the RC-300 is stopped and you are able to WRITE.

Another possible work around is to advance to a different MEMORY VALUE/PATCH.
There are several parameters the RC-300 is computing and preserving (for example UNDO for each track).

Check your RC-300 SYSTEM PROGRAM VERSION.
How to tell the Version Please check the version of the system working on your RC-300 before downloading the archive file.
1. Adjust the MASTER [ LEVEL ] knob, TRACK [1] [2] [3] sliders and RHYTHM [ LEVEL ]knob to minimum.

2. Hold down the RHYTHM [ EDIT ] button and [ TAP TEMPO ] button and switch on the power.
The left display will show the current version number at "Ver"

3. Turn RC-300 OFF after checking the version.

Vers. 1.05 and 1.10 are identical Versions.
Vers 1.10 was made for internal documentation of hardware adjustments/changes and is unrelated to the System Firmware.

I'm pretty content with the 1.05 and I've used it as an audio interface (a feature it's not really advertised as having) among other things besides a looper.  It's a nice unit although I wish they'd come out with a new one with 2 more loops (or 3) instead of the pedal.
