DigiTech JamMan
The DigiTech JamMan is a looper pedal designed for players who want to sample and loop parts over each other. It is a digital unit that provides a great deal of control over what you can do. While most people use it for guitar, in addition to 1/4 inch connections it has an XLR mic input as well for vocals. It also has a USB port and is powered by the power supply that comes with it. It isn't a rack mountable piece of gear as it is a foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the DigiTech JamMan isn't too hard to understand and figure out, although there are a lot of features available. The pedal has knobs for loop level, rhythm level, mic level, and instrument level, as well as a slew of buttons for various controls. It has two separate foot switches - one for recording and overdubbing and one for stop and tempo tapping. While this isn't the simplest pedal to use, its vast array of parameters make it a versatile pedal that contains a ton of great features. The manual for this pedal is thorough and is a good idea to have if you are new to this type of pedal.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound of the DigiTech JamMan is fine and suitable for what it does. It will portray your samples accurately and with the same sound quality that they are played at. I've used this pedal both with electric guitar and a microphone and I'm always happy with the way things turn out. While the direct and instrument inputs will record at a much higher quality than microphone, all of the recording possible with this pedal sounds pretty good.

OVERALL OPINION

I've only had the DigiTech JamMan for about six months, but I've been very happy with it since I've had it. I love recording and looping parts over each other as its not only a cool and interesting thing to do, but helps me to write and get ideas for songs. The price of the DigiTech JamMan isn't cheap, but if you are someone who loves to loop things and will use it a lot I believe its worth the price for the serious player. This is one of the best looping pedals I've seen and used out there as I like it better than the Boss looper. I highly recommended giving this pedal a try if you are big into guitar sampling and looping.

DigiTech JamMan
Everything has already been said ..

USE

After peeling the instructions (light incidentally), I came back to a very basic and spontaneous use of the object. I only use at home, at improv in unbridled solo sessions, to turn the rhythm that come with the wind and let go in improvisation. It is the spontaneous use: I do not overlay loops (overdub) or record anything in the memory of thing. The music disappears into outer space.

At most I can use the metronome to be sure you calibrate a pace a bit long. In this regard the BPM of the metronome does not go down very low. I used one for slow rhythms.

In this personal use, the Jamman gives me satisfaction, he knows how to forget. I'd rather not even think about using it on stage and / or with other musicians, it is not well-born enough to claim it. And I do not want to fight when I make music.

SOUND QUALITY

I put it at the very end loop of my Marshall JVM 205C. It is in the loop it should be, because otherwise no way to use the overdrive channel of the amp while rotating the loop in the clear (or vice versa). And it must be the end loop to retrieve the sound of all the effects placed before him.

The sound is good without being exceptional. With a tube amp and quality effects pedals, the sound of the loop seems necessarily less alive, less articulate, more compressed, more "FM radio". Again for home that does not pose a problem, although I do not spit on better sound.

For cons, the ultra positive is its perfect transparency passive position in the loop. I always leave in the same loop when I do not use it. Because it has another purpose: the same volume level between loop and switched loop bypassed. Indeed the JVM activation loop lose volume 10db (when 100% wet). Therefore the knob "Inst Level" of Jamman I use to mount the volume of the loop. Booster super transparent, I myself am very surprised.


NOTICE GLOBAL

I'm not in love with the Jamman, far from it. I quickly realized that the functionality of the device, except for the basic, could not be used in a "professional" (sound, stage, recording ..).

If you want a scene looper, so invest in a software-driven pedal noon. It is much more powerful, flexible and easy to manage once in place. If you want to record compositions, it is not with the Jamman we will. But then as a learning tool, free improvisation, exploration of the instrument, I can say in-pen-sand!

I chose the Jamman, I could take another one. They are all more or less badly pesky and not professionals. Apart from the Boomerang, which looks over the lot. I might even delay looper with Boss DD7 my pedal makes it too. When I bought the DD7, I hesitated to resell Jamman, but I did not put the DD7 end of the loop, and I was losing booster function loop of Jamman. A pedal function and cows are well guarded.

I seem to have made much progress without realizing it through the looper, simply fun to play, improvise, discover the instrument. I'm a lot more comfortable now to find my place among other musicians, and in different styles. I prefer a looper pedal a software: I like to play music off computer, free. The simple things are often the best.

goldorock's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" good pedal, but must be well synchronized with"

DigiTech JamMan
yes, you can add sounds (drums, guitar, etc.) by the mac / pc, but it is a pedal that starts dating

(See if it is compatible with the new mac, pc)

Very solid pedal

-Pedal footswitch + if you want to zap loop loop + Automatic Recording

24mn-registration card included with
We can accelerate the slow song without changing the pitch
- There is a metronome bass drum and this is really good
We can connect a microphone or guitar
-99 Tracks / loops possible

UTILIZATION

I tested a few times this pedal legend that has been very popular among artists singers-guitarists

use:
it is simple, but to be really sync and on stage, I think it requires some preparation if it is the cat

SOUND QUALITY

apparently not true bypass for this model

OVERALL OPINION

I'd rather buy a pedal + simple: the new models or see other brands because in the end, I was serving not

I find it not necessary unless one is alone on stage or 2

I think there are too many features to navigate clearly

ddn's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Qualities, defects. As all of us."

DigiTech JamMan
You all know the Jamman is a looper guitar pedal in mono format, with a memory as GROSSE uses compact flash cards whose storage capacity can exceed the Go
Guitar input, line input, XLR mic input, classical. Volume knob on the guitar to the mic (not the line input, note everything you'll connect it has a volume knob), volume knob for the loop.
First major flaw: it is heavy on a pedalboard is boring. Second big flaw: it uses a specific DC power supply 1300 mA, the power supply is not compatible with my pedalboard, boring too.

UTILIZATION

Left pedal: recording, playback support new, new support overdub, and so on. Can stop recording when you press the pedal or end barlines signing the chosen tempo.
Right pedal: stop, long press of the loop deletion. Supposedly tap tempo in practice unusable.
Metronome function, useful for those who use a metronome, so not for me.
Missing functions: reverse. Yes, you read well, no reverse function. The mind boggles.
The jam manager software works very well for me, the issue is very simple and very effective.

SOUND QUALITY

Good looper, I regularly read it kinda sucks the sound of the guitar because it is not true bypass, I do not hear any difference.
Rendering loop is good for my ears, especially as I am sending the signal without effects, I then processes the signal and I resample the processed signal.

OVERALL OPINION

I month. I was impressed by his strength, high quality manufacturing, huge memory it has, and the opportunity to exchange in which I had. It is an excellent tool, with the reservations above.
In total, it is not really suited to my needs because I'm just the looping / sampling live and I do not use it for its true purpose: to repeat at home.
