Getting spooky, the amount of processing power they can put in a pedal these days.

This pedal will make you blind.

Now it's been superseded by the Band Creator Plus, it's reduced to 49 at Gear4Music in the Black Monday-to-Monday sale.

Oh lord. I've been kinda eyeballing these over the years, just as a tool for quickly and easily playing around with ideas without busting out a DAW. Will have to compare this with used prices...

Yep, getting a Trio+ for Xmas, haha.

I like the looper on the EHX Canyon I have, but I think it makes a lot more sense have a dedicated looper and looper-style functionality in its own box.

I LOVE the fact that these have built-in speaker/amp sims and FX you can add to the guitar signal, you can essentially do everything going straight into this and into headphones.

I think misused, these could be corny as FUCK (i.e. replacing a band in a live situation), but for getting ideas together without having to programme anything, or even turning on your compootah? Aces.

I like that pedal more than some drummers I've worked with.

TRIO+ is fucking ace, have been having lots of fun over the last few days.

Definitely gonna be a boon for songwriting, I love the idea of being able to try different styles against the same chord progression stored in the looper, at the twirl of a dial. Great for pushing through yer classic songwriting rut-block.

Nice. I thought the Trio was capable of following your tempo if you flex it - on the Trio+ does the looper adjust its tempo if you adjust yours?

Mmmm not sure what you mean, sir. I don't think you can make the tempo speed up and slow down during a single part/loop/section, that'd be pretty weird to have for something that loops. You can tweak the tempo of both the backing and the loop with the Tempo dial, v handy.

You can have different 'defined by your input' tempos for each part in your sequence, I think. You can also set it to count you in at the current BPM for your new part, but it doesn't provide the click underneath when you're actually playing.. I'm not sure if it enforces that 'clicked' tempo or not, need to do some more experimentation.

Fortunately, it does have a USB input for firmware updates, which is always a good thing; hopefully they'll tweak the above interaction if there's enough call for it.

I'll do an demo when I'm back in Londonium.

This thing seemed so silly to me when it came out, but as usual one Doog demo later and things are decidedly more beard-strokey.

lol @ hashtag

The demo sounds lovely. I can't even remember why I made a comment about blindness.

Laughing

I've got a load of pedals that need demoing, so I think I'm gonna do a kinda 'all in one' kind of a deal to showcase the lot, with the Trio+ providing a semi-tasteful backing

Looks like the last of the Digitech Trios are sold out at most places, Thomann have stock at 66.
Also no longer available is the Behringer Ultra Shifter/Harmonist US600.

Because of the thread title, surely?

So when you're using one of these doobries, how do you add overdrive/distortion to your guitar?

Presumably a pedal before the TRIO as after would distort "the band" too? Does it still track nicely when working out your chord progression?

How are people setting these up typically? Playing with headphones or into an amp?
