LINE6 JM4 LOOPER"
Purchased at auction.
I have wanted to record my own performance for practice for a long time.
With this I can record and playback at my feet.
Of course, it's a looper, so you can keep layering phrases on top of each other. It also accepts microphone and bass inputs, so it can be used as a simple MTR. (You can't do detailed mixing, though.)
In addition, professional performances are included as loops, so you can play solos with professional performances in the background.
The professionals are.
Tony Franklin (THE FIRM, Pearl, etc.)
Carmine Apis (BB&A, Cactus, Pearl, etc.)
Simon Phillips (TOTO, etc.)
Greg Bissonette (David Lee Roth Band, etc.)
I didn't know the guitarist.
The performances that are included as loops are blues, country, rock, and funk.
The sound is more like hard rock, and this might be a matter of taste.
It would have been nice if there were some jazz or other 4-beat type of music in the album.
However, it is possible to import loops from an external device via SD card, so jazz loops may be possible with that.
One of the other attractive features of the JM4 is that it can also be used as a multi-effects pedal.
There is a great amount of effector presets, and there are artist patches and song name patches.
The artist patches are almost unusable (lol). (You know, like 311?)
The song name patches have famous songs from the 60's to the 00's. It's a nice wide range of patches. The sound reproduction is also quite good.
The sound quality seems to be unpopular with those who have used PODs before. Some people said that the sound quality is not good for those who have used PODs, that it does not have detailed settings, and that it is just a bonus multi-effects pedal. It is true that it has a very digital sound, but I don't mind it that much.
It is a pity that the four footswitches cannot be assigned to effectors.
Well, it was originally a looper, so maybe I shouldn't ask for that much!
