Guided Tour - Front Panel Loop Level Controls the playback level of the loop phrase. Rhythm Level Controls the level of the Rhythm guide track. Loop/Single/Card Mem LEDs Loop LED This green LED indicates the current phrase memory is set to playback continuously as a loop when play is initiated.
Guided Tour - Front Panel recorded will be recorded as a loop phrase. Loop phrases can be converted to Single phrases and vice versa. The Loop LED will also flash during processes where the internal memory or optional SD memory is being accessed (loading a loop, Time Stretching, or store/ copy procedure).
A good practice is to set the Inst Level and Loop Level controls at the 12 o’clock position when using an electric guitar or bass. This provides a unity gain signal through the JamMan Stereo when connected to your amplifier.
Guided Tour - Front Panel Aux Input (Finish) LED This LED indicates the Aux Input is selected for recording (see page 34). When the Shift button is enabled, this LED will light when the “Finish” stop mode is selected for the Loop. Center –...
Guided Tour - Front Panel Press this button while the Shift button is lit to change the playback status of a recorded phrase. When the Loop LED is lit the phrase will play back in an endless loop. When the Single LED is lit, the phrase will play once and stop.
Guided Tour - Front Panel Loop Down Footswitch This footswitch selects the next lower loop memory. Press and hold this footswitch to scroll quickly through internal and optional SD card memories. Reverse (Rhythm Type) Button Press this button to make the recorded loop phrase play back in reverse.

LED will flash as the loop is loaded LooP sINgLe from internal or optional card memory. Trying to store, copy, or change the loop tempo during this time is ignored (bu will be displayed indicating the JamMan Stereo is busy loading a loop from memory).
You should have an instrument or audio device connected to the 1/4” inputs or a mic connected to the XLR mic input before proceeding. NOTE: The maximum loop time the JamMan Stereo can record or play is 10 minutes.
If you’ve tapped in a tempo while Auto Record is enabled, the rhythm guide track will begin playing. Pressing the footswitch will arm Rec/PLaY/oVeRDUb the JamMan Stereo for recording. As soon as signal is detected, recording will begin immediately. Changing to an empty loop memory while is enabled will preserve...
® recording when signal is detected at any of the JamMan Stereo’s inputs. NOTE: The maximum loop time the JamMan Stereo can record or play is 10 minutes. You can’t auto-record on an existing loop; Auto Record is only available when an empty loop memory is selected.
Recording Overdubs Once a loop phrase is recorded, you can add overdubs over the top of it. Overdubs can only be recorded to Loop phrases and not to Single phrases. Use the knob or the footswitches to select seLect LooP UP/LooP DoWN a previously recorded Loop phrase, or use a newly recorded phrase that has not yet been stored.
Undo, Redo, and Clear You can undo or redo an overdub anytime you remain in the current memory where the overdub was recorded. You can also use a footswitch to clear all unstored loop phrase audio. Note: Changing loops discards any unstored overdubs. Storing the overdubs will also remove the ability to undo or clear overdubs.

Stop Modes Loop Phrases can be stopped in three ways after the footswitch teMPo/stoP is pressed: • : Stops the phrase immediately when Stop is pressed. stoP • : Finishes playing to the end of the phrase and stops after Stop is pressed. fINIsH •...
If your timing was a little early or late when setting the loop point, not to worry. The JamMan Stereo automatically adjusts the loop length exactly to the measure length set by the Tempo and Time Signature.
Storing/Copying Phrases Anytime a change is made to a loop memory location (Rhythm Type, Tempo, Time Signature, Record, Overdubs etc.) the button will immediately stoRe light. This indicates that the changes will be lost unless a store procedure is performed before selecting a new loop memory location, turning off the power.
Time Signature The JamMan Stereo is capable of recording in different Time Signatures. A ® Time Signature must be set up prior to recording in a memory location. Once a phrase has been recorded, Time Signature cannot be changed. To set the Time Signature, follow these steps: Use the knob or...
Setting a Loop Tempo for Recording Before you begin recording a phrase, you may want to set a tempo at which you want to record the loop at. Setting the tempo in an empty loop memory location automatically starts playing the rhythm guide track (Rhythm Level must be turned up to hear the guide track).
Time Stretching a Loop Once a loop phrase is recorded, you can change the playback tempo which speeds up or slows down the playback of the phrase without changing its pitch (Time Stretch). Time Stretching a loop is a very useful feature in case the band is playing slightly slower or faster than normal or you just want to change the pace of a backing track slightly.
Loop / Single Phrases Any phrase recorded into the JamMan Stereo can be played in two ways: ® Either as a continuous Loop, or as a Single “one-shot” sample. Single phrases are designed to play the recorded phrase only once and stop. All phrases are recorded as loops by default but they can be changed to a Single phrase if desired.
Rhythm Type The JamMan Stereo’s guide track has 9 rhythm types to select from. These ® range from a simple click metronome to various drum samples as the rhythm guide (a tempo must be defined and the knob must be turned up RHYtHM LeVeL to hear the guide track).
Rhythm Type Rhythm Output The Rhythm Output isolates the rhythm guide track from the left and right outputs and provides a mono mix of the JamMan Stereo’s looped audio. ® This is useful for someone like a drummer in the band who needs to follow a click track but also wants to hear the looped audio.
Deleting Individual Loop Phrases The JamMan Stereo has 99 memory locations and at some time you may need ® to delete the contents of a memory location so it may be reused or to free up memory. To delete a loop from a memory location, follow these steps: Press the button.
Erase All Loops - Internal Memory The JamMan Stereo uses both internal memory and optional card memory ® for the storage of loop files. You can erase all loops from internal memory or from card memory without having to delete them one at a time. To erase all loops from internal memory, follow these steps: Select a loop memory location that does not light the LED.
JamMan Stereo is compatible with SD/SDHC card sizes up to 32GB for over 16 hours of total loop memory. The first time a memory card is inserted into the JamMan Stereo, it is recommended that you format the card using the JamMan Stereo’s format procedure (see page 55).
Bu indicating DIsPLaY the card is being formatted. Unformatted Cards If a memory card is inserted into the JamMan Stereo that does not have a valid format, the JamMan Stereo will not recognize it and the will DIsPLaY read nF.
Erase All Loops - Memory Card The Erase Loops procedure only erases JamMan Stereo loop data from a memory card. All other data and files on the card are left untouched. To erase all loops from an optional SD/SDHC memory card, follow these steps: Install an optional SD/SDHC memory card in the JamMan Stereo’s...
Optional FS3X Footswitch The optional FS3X Footswitch gives you hands-free control over loop selection, tempo, and stop functions. Mode Switch This footswitch is used for immediately undoing and redoing the last recorded overdub. Down Switch This footswitch is used to play the recorded phrase in reverse. Up Switch This footswitch can be used to set the tempo of a new loop or change the tempo (Time Stretch) of a stored loop.
Librarian Software The JamManager loop librarian software is available as a free download from the DigiTech website. This application runs on both Windows XP/ Vista/7 and Mac OS X computer systems, and lets you archive and transfer loops between the Stereo and your computer.
