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.

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.

_yan_g_'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

DigiTech JamMan
A simple loop pedal, digital course. Storage Compact Flash card, the ability to transfer files via USB (difficult, it is better to invest in a card reader). Metronome function (capricious). Overdub.
One guitar input, 1 XLR input, 1 input to (type MP3 player). I forgot outputs but at least for guitar amp :)

UTILIZATION

Use, blah ... It does not record long pieces (a few minutes by taking maximum - this is for loops). The tap tempo is a phenomenal vagueness, it is very difficult to obtain a desired tempo metronome: (
I am not able to transfer files from my PC to the card by plugging in USB. The software provided is done wrong, it is easier in my opinion to invest in a card reader Compact Flash.
Apart from that it does its job.

SOUND QUALITY

Sound ok.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it regularly for a few years to work improv. For what I was doing ok.

sigmunfred's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good product"

DigiTech JamMan
See previous opinions

UTILIZATION

Very simple config, XLR microphone handy for instrument input jack, a mini-jack for an mp3 to style mecteur to work on pieces.
Very clear and comprehensive manual.
In terms of making loop, well, it takes practice but once you get there it's great.
Ah yes, the optional footswitch is almost essential to move from one memory to another. editing is super simple and very well explained in the manual.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality is very good. Can independently adjust the level of rhythm, or the loop of what we play live: practice!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 years, especially as mobile recorder to sleep there with ideas for my songs and my songs to rehearse alone.
I have not tried other models but this one suits me.
I just regret that it is mono.
So I think investing in a JML2 soon but if it does not exist, I would do this choice without hesitation.

Meur'saw's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a working machine ..."

DigiTech JamMan
look elsewhere for the features ...

there is a loop ...

UTILIZATION

relatively simple, it is still necessary to dwell a little on the manual, which is very clear ...

SOUND QUALITY

transparent enough ...

you can adjust the volume of the loop, and the signal at the entrance ... practice ...

The flaw is that it does not take too short loops, me three seconds I would say ... it's a bit boring but good just repeat the riff ...

OVERALL OPINION

for now it is a pure work tool ... I use it sometimes repeat that I am alone with the drummer, just to find second scratch for some songs and "facilitate" the life of another guitarist ...

but still I plan to use it one day in a formula duo guitar / drums ...

grophil's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Trs good product!"

DigiTech JamMan
USB connectors super easy to use and quick to back up the loops.
With a 2 GB card is hours of fun.

UTILIZATION

It takes time getting started but it is an APRS rgal.

SOUND QUALITY

The CD quality is by appointment .. I use it too small to catch in his rpt.
It's really stunning.

OVERALL OPINION

Super product.
I also use it for voice-cons to find voice.
pinkbono11/17/2011

pinkbono's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good, but tone sucker ..."

DigiTech JamMan
Looper pedal digital double.
Input jack mono, mono output jack.
XLR microphone input.
I bought mine with an additional footswitch FS3X.

UTILIZATION

Easy to use if one is a looper function, the rest must fiddle and it's not always instinctive.
Two actions in addition to the looper has imperatively set correctly, the input gain and the level of dubbing, easy but must be done carefully so feedback and spare breath.

SOUND QUALITY

The tempo change post dubbing sounds bad, we forget.
The looper is excellent and makes what you give ... And it's that will tickle the most demanding because the Jamman is not true bypass. The sound then passes through these channels and the Jamman acts as a tone sucker is light, but ca (me) shit.
Of course you will not hear anything if you have a solid state at the end of the string, but you apprcierez least if you fight and pay for the purity of your sound.
I have been slow to accept it, but before the undeniable usefulness of this looper I chose to isolate it in a loop mechanical true bypass and inside the loop of my amp while the chain end . This way I can simply disable the loop mechanism for recovering from my original.
I will make a loop pedal a more specific term ...

OVERALL OPINION

I got mine for five good years, it has its faults (see above) but I am generally satisfied and does not change, the contrast of a Boss RC-20 which turns after two weeks.
It is primarily a looper and not a multi-effects, it is convenient, efficient and easy to use when one is confined to its basic function, and that's what I did. I dub bass, overdub a rhythmic stacks qq loops in the same vein several fatherly in sequence, then I'm happy playing freely jumping from a paternal to the other with the help of the indispensable footswitch FS3X (to buy separately).
A repeat now I would take the new model incorporates the additional footswitch.

OVERALL OPINION

I use the 2-man jam:
- Record rhythm parts and then ask solo parts: it is perfect for that, we can make improvisation quickly
- For components, it allows to establish a piece quickly and you can Save about 45 minutes with the original card with good sound quality (of course it does not replace a home studio but for the first jets c ' is not bad)
This robust and practical, no complaints!

DigiTech JamMan
Loopstation pretty simple, but expensive.

UTILIZATION

Config relatively simple. But real hassle if you want to use it with the computer.

SOUND QUALITY

Sound quality not bad.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for some years. She fell down twice. Left pedal HS. After warranty repairs. A little disappointing. Not sure I do it again this choice.
