Line 6 JM4 Looper FREE DELIVERY
The JM-4 from Line 6 is the ultimate jamming and practice tool, combining an amp simulator, recording looper and jam along backing tracks all in one stylish box.
The amp simulator and effects section features an awesome array of tones, ranging from classic and vintage sounds right through to modern high gain and lead tones. Over 200 artist preset patches are onboard with signature sounds from bands such as Ash, Elbow, INXS, Killswitch Engage, Maroon 5 and Lacuna Coil. A number of famous tones from classic tracks are included, Jimi Hendrix's "Hey Joe", Dire Straight's "Sultans of Swing" and Metallica's "Enter Sandman" to name but a few. As well as all the signature tones, the JM4 has over 150 presets to accompany the built-in jam tracks and 36 user patches. These user patches allow you to create your own tones from the 12 Line 6 amp models (based on famous amps which can't be named on the JM4 for copyright reasons) and an array of effects, echos and reverb.
Based on the popular Spider Jam amplifier, the JM4 Jam Man features over 100 "Endless Jam" backing tracks and drum grooves. The jam tracks aren't the dodgy MIDI files that are found on other backing track machines, these quality tracks feature real instruments and have been performed by top Nashville and LA session players. This means you get the real groove feel that you would if you were playing with real musicians, as opposed to sequenced computer parts. More than just a cool jamming feature, these backing tracks allow you to experiment with your solos, explore your creativity in writing songs, work on your playing and improvisation technique...and let's not forget the most important thing, have fun!
Finally, as a looper, the JM-4 offers up to 24 minutes of recording time and storage for up to 100 recorded loops. This allows you to capture a riff, loop it and play over the top of it...and it will allow you to do overdub as many parts as you want until you run out of record time! All the loop functions are controlled via the easy to use footswitches, allowing you to keep your hands free to play. You can extend the JM4's recording time by adding an optional 2GB SD card which also allows you to transfer your recordings to your computer in .WAV file form. Via the SD card slot, you can also import your own songs into JM4 Looper before transposing, time-stretching or looping them.
Inputs for guitar, XLR mic or line input means you are not just restricted to looping and recording your guitar, whilst stereo jack and headphone outputs means that the Line 6 JM4 is a versatile practice and songwriting tool with no end to it's creative potential. Video Demo Here.

As all-in-one Jamming tools go, you can't really beat the Line 6 JM-4. The quality of the amp sims and effects are up to the usual high standard that Line 6 have become renowned for, and the addition of the signature tones is a very welcome one...just by plugging in my cheap strat, even I could sound like a passing resemblence of Jimi Hendrix or Mark Knopfler!
The quality of the backing tracks is also something to be applauded. Line 6 have gotten together a bunch of top quality session players to record these tracks for the sole purpose of these Line 6 products. The backing tracks range in styles and are well arranged and easy to jam over. The fact that it's real musicians you're playing along with does a lot more for your inspiration, they feel much more natural as opposed to like a glorified metronome.
The looper is very simple to use, allowing you to simply overdub parts, building up riffs and ideas in a very natural, free flowing way. The simple design and footswitches work well, not getting in the way of your playing or stifelling any creativity. All in all, there isn't anything else out there that does all the things the JM4 does...and especially, this well. A round of applause for Line 6 and their session musicians!
