When DigiTech developed the PDS 8000 looper pedal over 20 years ago, it looped 8 seconds of audio. When DigiTech reinvented loopers in 2005 with the original JamMan, over 6 hours worth of material could be stored on a removable media card. Now, DigiTech has raised the bar with the new JamMan Stereo Looper with the ability to store 35 minutes of CD-quality loops in 99 internal memories as well as having an SD memory card expansion slot giving you the ability to store over 16* hours of material in an additional 99 slots.
The JamMan Stereo also features true stereo looping, reverse playback, and a mic input making it perfect for backing tracks or DJ applications.
The JamMan Stereo features USB connectivity and will sync to DigiTech's free JamManager software that organizes and saves your JamMan Stereo loops to PC or Mac. JamManager also lets you quickly create custom JamLists to take to your gig.
The JamMan Stereo also feature a 1/4" Rhythm Output jack to send to your monitor, keep the rest of the band in sync.

This Looper is awesome. A great tool for a band that doesn't mind using a click, and for laying parts to practice to etc. great sound. Memory flexibility, easy to use... But...the JamManager software is freaking painful. It froze up my stealth MacPro 8 core computer like it was a piece of software from the 80's. Everytime I tried to use it, I felt like I was using dial up internet or something and finally after my reliable computer froze the 7th or 8th time I used the jammanager software and it wouldn't come back on. My hard drive fried!! Beware. It seems apparent Digitech cares absolutely nothing about the software end of things or they wouldn't subject us to such a disasterous, buggy, slow moving sofware. On top of that, we are forced to put all our audio files on our main hard drive with no other options. Who does that anymore?! Are we in the 80's?! It's 2012 for petes sake!! I use my computer for production and was always careful to have separate drives for audio, and only use my main drive for applications, and as few of those as possible. With that philosophy I have been able to run 80 tracks in Logic Audio (with many plugs in), without a hiccup. Not so with Jammanager...Ugh. Hiccup, fart,stall, crash, burn. That little tiny program killed my computer, so you take your chances using the software. Don't say you weren't warned. You been forewarned by someone who's been burned...badly...
Okay so I just got this looping station and overall I am very happy with it. I like think to be very simple and easy to use when I am work on my phrases and this device helps out a tone. I like the external memory all the way to how easy it is to record. Now I will be the first to say I don't have a ton of experience with looping station but I did do my homework then ask the sales rep his opinion without even giving mine and he pick this one. Okay if you are looking for user friendliness this is the guy for you. It does have it quirks like deleting loops not something you can figure out yourself so you will have to RTM(Read The Manuel). Now the pros are basically what everyone else is saying. But the major con is what everyone else is saying. And to me it's that it doesn't run off batteries. That is the only reason I gave it a 4/5
This thing is a lot of fun for just jamming or practicing; I might even consider it for a live performance where I need extra hands. I am using it with my Roland RD-700gx keyboard. Works great. I have only tried 3 levels of over dubs but have not had a need to do more. I also tried in the FX loop on my Mackie ProFX mixer. Gets really crazy. Learning was straight forward. I wish I would have had this thing a couple of years ago. Very happy with the purchase.
This pedal is limited only by your imagination. I use it mainly to round out my sound doing acoustic solo or duet shows but I also have some uses when I play with my full band. It does take some practice and a LOT of tinkering to really explore the depths of what this unit is capable of but I love it. This thing can make you sound like a symphony with a little bit of practice. disclaimer: The unit does help you with "quantizing" the rhythm, but you still need to have rhythm. You will quickly become aware of the flaws in your time keeping, so expect that you will have to practice. that being said, i was doing some pretty cool stuff with it after about 15 minutes of tinkering. I've one complaint - you can't store and delete loops from the foot pedals, you have to use the buttons. otherwise when you switch loops, it deletes what you just recorded.
i just got this pedal for Christmas 2011 and I am already a huge fan. this pedal has everything I was looking for and more. its versatile design makes it easy to use and control and convenient when writing songs, practicing, or just improvising to a rythym. and to the dude who said you cannot play distorted solos over clean rythyms you are wrong. you just need to have any distortion pedal you have before your JamMan. because when you turn on your amp distortion,no matter what you do, everything that filters through the amp is gonna be distorted. so if you just use a distortion or overdrive pedal before the looper, it works perfeectly. and harmonizing actually comes out pretty well on this pedal. you just have to have accurate timing towards both loops you harmonize to. or you could loop one part of a harmony and just play the other part to ensure your timing is accurate. and if you wanna play a riff behind it prerecord the riff before the harmony, but make sure it compliments the harmony. but overall this pedal is amazing and totally worth the money. MUST BUY.
Shopped around for a good mid-priced looper to replace my old looper pedal (boss rc-20). Not disappointed in the least. Does everything the my old boss did with extra pedals to shift through the loops. External memory and usb connectivity are a huge bonus along with the 2 hrs of built in memory. The loop rotary selector knob is great for getting through the large number of memory slots too. Sound quality is very good. No major loss of tone here. Only thing I'm missing on this unit is a midi in/out for syncing to a midi clock or additional jammans and you can't double/quadruple etc. a dubbed track over your recorded loops like the RC-50 can. Can't go wrong for the money for a standalone live looper.
This pedal is great. Simply great. There is a slight learning curve, but timing wasn't as much an issue as some of the other reviews may lead you to believe. The construction is undeniably rugged, and unless you blatantly abuse this, it will never wear. Buy this, plug in, and let the creativity flow. The JamMan Stereo has great features that allow everything from an on-the-spot "undo" function to erase your last dubbing (either live or when stopped), to live reverse dubbing, to full time signature customization and tempo control. You can even change the tempo of stored loops. And once you've perfected your loop, you can store it to the device (or SD card) and transfer it to your PC or Mac via USB. The included software is simple and effective, although it will require you to download and install Microsoft SilverLight, if you're using a PC. Not a big deal, but I would have preferred it not to require extra software to be functional. Flash could've worked, too. All in all, this pedal is great. If you're looking for something with on-board effects as well, there are other options, but the JamMan Stereo is a great piece a great piece of equipment that is perfect for practicing, composing, and gigging.
I can't say much more that hasn't already been said about this fantastic pedal. The only "downside" is that its power source is plug-in only (no battery) but for me that's really not an issue. As for the one review that complains about not being able to play distortion over clean, you actually can: you just have to put your distortion pedal (or whatever effect pedal) BEFORE the looper in your chain. Then it works great. And, unlike the video posted on this site says, it DOES come with instructions. Easy to use, decent price, well worth it.
My first looper, but did my homework. Learning curve: 1 hour to reasonably dub lead over dubbed rhythm guitar over drum/rhythm guide track. 3 more hours to take free internet backing tracks through iTunes to the Jamman Stereo and playing lead over it. The most time was spent learning how to convert backing tracks to iTunes files to .wav files, which is a computer issue. People need to understand that you need all of your effects before the looper and always run a clean amp, otherwise your drum, clean guitar, keyboard and bass tracks will get distorted and/or reverbed by your amp as well. Also, if you want to change tracks on the fly, other single and dual pedal loopers require additional expensive switch pedals that this unit already has built in!!! FANTASTIC!! (although wimpy guide track sounds and no power switch is a bummer) P.S. A free downloadable software upgrade (about 1 minute) was prompted, so maybe this solved earlier reviewers; software criticisms, because it seems easy to me and works well.
this is a solid unit. The guy complaining that the clean sound turns distorted also says that happens when he "plugs into the distorion channel", which leads me to believe he is physically plugging into the other channel on the amp. Of course a clean tone will turn distorted in that situation! You need to stay on the clean channel and distort with pedals after the looper - then there is no problem!
