Sound Technology Ltd has announced immediate UK shipping of the new DigiTech JamMan Solo XT advanced compact looper pedal. Here's what they have to say about it...
After inventing looping nearly three decades ago, DigiTech's JamMan Solo XT brings you the definitive stereo looping experience in a single compact pedal. Seamless transitions between virtually unlimited looped phrases, unique JamSync technology to link multiple loopers, Micro SD card expansion, and flexible hands-free control, all make the JamMan Solo XT the most powerful compact looper to date and an invaluable tool for composing and performing.
The JamMan Solo XT features a unique pedal-linking capability called JamSync. For multi-phrase looping, a guitarist can link together multiple JamMan Solo XTs and record different length phrases in each while staying in perfect sync. Link together three JamMans and the JamSync will provide three synced phrases, and so on. Loopers can now use as many phrases as they need to create intricate loop layering. Bands can now use looping by linking together individual looper pedals and having each member control their own loop contributions giving the looping market a whole new meaning.
The new JamManager™ XT loop librarian works with the JamMan Solo XT for synchronizing loops, creating JamLists, and building your loop library. JamManager XT is used for transferring loops between the JamMan Solo XT and your computer via the USB port. It is available as a free download and will run on both Windows and Intel Mac computers.
The pedal's new Auto Record feature makes recording a loop easier. Simply arm the JamMan for record and it waits for you to start playing before recording begins, giving you a precise loop start point every time.
The JamMan Solo XT features a metronome plus useful drum tracks and samples created by King Crimson's drummer Pat Mastelotto.
