Looper / Sampler Line 6 ...

All features have been described Samho not in the "News"!

-----------------------
Otherwise, I leave an opinion because I decided to give one to each device that I had or still have, to contribute to life on the forum!
Indeed, I was lucky to find several opinions on the same product when I registered knew AF! End of parenthesis!
-----------------------

UTILIZATION

The manual is very well done.
Take your time and read it correctly, because everything is not as intuitive as it ... even if it comes soon! Do not hesitate to tweak, you learn faster ...

Personally, I use it in 3 ways:

-When I go on holiday somewhere! A skyscraper, JM4 and headphone ... it's still better than Amplug Vox. And frankly, it's fun on the balcony of a chalet in the Alps at midnight with a good lather! Uh, HS, sorry!

To-work plans and solos on presets "artists" ... or mine or those of the other guitarists of the band!

-And to save "quickly" an idea that might fly ...

I do not hide at home, rather than to light a lamp for 30 mins, I use the JM4. It is permanently connected to a power amp Marshall VS8008, and all in a 2x12! Work for a while, it's still enough ... we must stop to tell it!

SOUND QUALITY

So SOUND! It is a means, it's true!

There, or Me, I'm very dissatisfied, it's more in terms of effects.
They are very average, and more, it is very difficult to adjust them properly!
But hey, this is not a true multi Fx anyway! Nevertheless, these painful, especially in clean / chorus for me.

Then, other reviews have come down squarely JM4, in terms of sound quality. What I would like to say is that if in this box, there was an AC30, a Dual Rectifier and a Hot Rod, we would know! Or ...

Where is the best sound quality, it is low volume (well, low / medium what!) ... Especially for distortion. A high volume, distortion transo are some limitations, it is true, and you can feel it with this unit! It's messy, it lacks fullness.
Of bass better than the treble. That's what I felt especially through headphones. Otherwise, in my config Power Amp Marshall highs have more precision, and all except "pale".

While the sound is quite synthetic in general, this distortion is that the device gets the best out of the game ..
Crunches are means, they lack the thick, heavy sound of this, and the cleans are rather flat, almost "lifeless" ... what the purists Fenderien panic!

But ... all the rest means and this unit still has the average (10 or 11 out of 20, not more) and not 4 or 6 of 20 as we noted other AFiens! Well, that's their choice. I think their expectations and hopes were such that the disappointment has taken over!

At first, it is not easy to make a perfect loop input. We will resume several times, but we must insist! And after, with the usual manages to make a loop almost "perfect" ... and that runs well.

It can speed up or slow down the presets for some artists ... If it goes too fast, it can be useful. The small downside to this is that the tone will change also. For example, for a preset in MI, if you descedez fèrieure in speed, you will spend in Eb, and so on! Well, it's not bad ... it work a little differently and on other area of ​​the handle ...

Presets some tracks (ACDC, Police, Metallica, etc ... are not so bad I think. This is my personal opinion, contrary to an opinion that it is to puke!

A small flat also for the level of output volume of the instrument!
On some presets artists, it appears too low and you have to change settings (amp simulation).

OVERALL OPINION

This device is intended solely for domestic use, as I describe in the "use"!
If some people expected a great product for live and / or the studio, he missed! Hence, some of their dissatisfaction that I can finally understand! Live, we see mostly the JamMan. Ultimately, we must not mistake the device when it was acquired.
Personally it suits me fine because I was expecting this kind of product, knowing what I was going I do!

To return to home use, it will be used for beginners and scratch "means good," to work ranges, plans and other licks, on sound presets artists (and even on their own), an idea to record output like that! This device is intended for that, guys ... to progress while at home alone, with headphones or an amp!

Zique good at all ...
