The Line 6 JM4 Looper is a very good product. For those of you who do not have other people to play with It's jam tracks are very well done. If you are learning the 7 modes of the major scale, or your pentitonics it is perfect to play those over and get a feel for what it is like to play in a band. The thing I like about it most is that if you like a particular backing track you can go in and change the tempo and key of it and practice your scale modes in another key using the same backing track. You can also make and layer your own tracks. It's also not to complicated to figure out. Ok for the negatives an on/off switch would have been nice, but there is not one. Some of backing tracks might sound a little distant but it is not so much that I wouldn't recommend it. Anyway it is well worth it to hone you skills. If you are contemplating getting a looper do check this one out.

If you absolutely have to have a looper the Line 6 JM4 is the only one worth having. That being said, you should be aware of what you want to accomplish with this unit, whether it's improving your playing, songwriting, or just jamming to solidify your timing.While the unit is well-made, with the exception of some chrome plastic controls, it's use as a learning/practice tool is somewhat limited. Specifically, even though the 200+ songs and grooves are performed by A-list studio musicians, the range of music genres is so broad that you may only find a few loops/songs that suit your taste and ability. While you can change the key and tempo of pre-recorded material, you cannot change the progression, which will eventually become boring.The unit does include some common effects, but not the quality or depth you would get from other Line 6 units like the POD. You may be satisfied with these limited settings if you're just using the unit for practice.One of the nicest features of the unit is it's ability to import WAV files via it's SD card slot for jamming and working out breaks. You can record your performances and even overlay performances (sound on sound) and save the results. The manual says you can export what you've saved as a WAV file via the "Save Rec Mix As WAV To Card" but the unit I had always gave a write error when attempting to perform this task.Recordings are saved via a JAM proprietary file format. These files are not readable by your computer without a third-party conveter from the Line-6 bloggers.In summary, this unit may work for you if you're a beginner or to a lesser extent if you're a more advanced player. But if you need more variety in your practice, for about the same price I'd recommend visiting the Musician's Friend website and ordering a copy of "Band in a Box" and perhaps a small multi-track recorder to work out your songs and practice routine. The JM4 Looper tries to be a lot of things all at once and in the end does't accomplish much of anything very well.

        Fun and a Great Learning Tool

        Comments about Line 6 JM4 Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

        What a great looper (and so much more). I am a beginner guitar player and this is a wonderful learning tool. A little spendy but in my opinion well worth the money. I am still learning to operate it properly and make use of all its functions. The learning curve is a little steep but not undoable. Learning the looper has been a fun experience as well. Don't take your significant other out to diner a couple of times and you can afford it. I'm sure he/she'll understand......maybe not.

          Unit needed a firmware update to correct issues but after many wasted hours was unable to complete. After talking with Tech support and explaining what had been attempted, they said it would have to be returned to the factory to be updated...Not good. Additionally no USB connectivity so it's very limited in storage capabilities and impossible to catalog your work. Not a serious recording device in my opinion.

          Comments about Line 6 JM4 Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I've owned this looper for several years now and it still sounds amazing. It's been well over 5 years or more since I bought this unit. There were a few out at the time like Digitech jamMan and boss RC but these didn't have the capacities for storage or options I was expecting. The built in loops for both drums and instruments including the abilities to change keys, mute tracks, and modify tempo were really a nice features which I use for song writing and solos. The effects are fairly standard but work fine for my needs. There were additional features that put this looper ahead of the pack like, changing the pedal to an effects pedal, start, stop, and half speed functions to name a few. The display is larger and allows for naming your work which is nice to have when several hours of material are put onto you SD card for transfer to your PC. The lights for the unit are easy to see and the blinking light helps ensure I am following tempo. I have read a few reviews about noise but I've need experienced this issue. The only 2 complaints I have are no usb port and loading the wav file from SD to internal memory is slow. It's very large and uses a lot of power so it is not Ideal for a pedal boards. I solved the size and power by purchasing a Digitech JamMan Soloist XT and moving the loops to the Soloist XT which now all access to the loops from the pedalboard.

          Comments about Line 6 JM4 Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

          The best sound quality I will get is directly through my Fender tube amp. The sound quality is significantly degraded by feeding through the jm4. Sampling the analog stream from the guitar, mixing it with digital tracks, and then feeding again to my analog tube amp degrades the overall sound quality. The ability to overdub your own tracks on the fly is really good and not hard to use, and a great way to experiment and compose. The ability to adjust the input level from your guitar to the level of the pre-recorded tracks to get the right mix takes constant tweaking. I think the amp effects are mediocre at best.

          This Looper Would Be Perfect If...

          By MICHAEL

          from Phoenix, AZ

          Comments about Line 6 JM4 Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

          ...for me--everbody's usually looking for specific things in their looper. That being said, this the JM4 is fantastic for practicing and creating and would be perfect for me at live gigs also if... 1. It had cleaner looped sound quality 2. true bypass--I mean, when it's not even on the signal goes through, true bypass 2. the forth pedal was for 'repeat once' ...should they upgrade this pedal to include the above, I'll shell out for a new one. In the mean time I love and appreciate that it currently has... 1. more than ample looping length 2. ability to save those loops to the pedal or an inserted SD card 3. the great led window that - shows you where you are or what loop you're using - even shows the progression of the loop as its playing - that you can custom name your loops 4. 3 stompers--Record, Play, Undo (please, just make that 4th one for 'repeat once') 5. the great drum and song loops to practice and create with 6. the INCLUDED 9v power supply (take not other pedal manufacturer!) 6. the use of a digital memory card and the ability to save to it 7. the ability to connect to a PC for various things like updates and backups

          Works great with a 3 piece band using rythem tracks , has the best realistic sound effects I've ever heard in my life more than you'll ever use I love them all. When playing stuff by Steely Dan , SRV even Beatles the tones are perfect . But I think the looper is more fun than all of it . It has the same brain as the spider jam , which I have and love it to, but this is so compact you along with the Min-ETunes no amps or extra guitars to pack around when playing one night stands bottom line it's a great piece of equipment thank you M/F for another great deal , keep it coming Line 6
