DigiTech today introduced the new JamMan Solo XT looper, featuring true stereo looping and an array of new features including JamSync, Dial-In BPMs, Micro SD interface and selectable stop modes, all in a single, compact stompbox form factor.
The JamMan Solo XT features a unique pedal-linking capability called JamSync. For multi-phrase looping, a guitarist can link together two 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 pedal’s 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.
“DigiTech’s long history of supercharging looping capabilities continues with the newest version of the JamMan. We are offering virtually unlimited possibilities for loops through the external memory card functionality. Pedals like the JamMan Solo XT give the individual player the power to expand their sonic palette beyond what was previously possible,” stated Rob Urry, vice president, HARMAN Professional Division and general manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units.
The looper features a USB port, metronome with multiple rhythm sounds, time signatures and hands-free functionality. Powered by DigiTech’s free JamManager XT software a guitarist can organize and save loops to a PC or Mac, create JamLists and have them available anytime for fast recall.
The JamMan Solo XT will be available in October 2012 with an MSRP of $309.95.
