TAKE YOUR PLAYING TO NEW HEIGHTS

Combining exhilarating jam tracks with sound-on-sound looping and a full arsenal of legendary Line 6 tones, JM4™ Looper sparks inspiration in ways other looping pedals can only dream.

JM4 Looper features over 100 Endless Jam™  tracks and drum grooves in more than 10 styles performed by top LA and Nashville session players. These tracks aren't rigid and robotic; these are actual recordings laid down by A-list drummers, bass players and guitarists. The real-world chemistry from these dynamic rhythm sections is here for you to explore your creativity in writing songs, trying out solo ideas or just honing your chops between gigs.

With up to 24 minutes of recording time, and storage for up to 100 recorded jams, JM4 Looper lets you capture all your riffs and musical ideas. A 2-GB SD card in the SD card slot provides additional jam storage and .WAV file transfer to your computer or recording software. Plus, use the SD card to import your own songs into JM4 Looper and transpose, time-stretch or loop over any music you want.

The looper has dedicated footswitches for Record/Overdub, Play/Stop, Half Speed and Undo for super-easy practicing, songwriting and creation of an entire backing band on the fly. Layer guitar tracks, bass tracks, keyboards-even vocals with the balanced XLR microphone input.

Complete with a comprehensive collection of brilliant modern and historic guitar tones, JM4 Looper gives you access to 200+ artist-created presets, 150+ song-based presets, 12 Line 6 amp models and a stunning array of effects for guitar and vocals. There's even room for 36 presets of your own creation.



WORLD-CLASS RHYTHM TRACKS

To get the best possible sounds, we've compiled a roster of ridiculously good A-list session players and recorded them at amazing studios around the country including Steve Vai's studio, The Mothership, as well as Sound Asylum in Canoga Park, California and Sound Emporium's Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee.


Here are a few choice cuts:

THE MEN, THE MYTHS, THE LEGEND

Get to know two of the masters who wrote and performed on many of the backing tracks in JM4™  Looper.

Musical director and bassist Tony Franklin is responsible for writing many of the tracks included in JM4 Looper. Tony got his big break playing bass in guitar legend Jimmy Page's supergroup, The Firm. Tony has since played with a long list of greats including David Gilmour, Marty Friedman, Gary Hoey and Quiet Riot.

Musical director and bassist Dave Pomeroy has played on more than 400 albums with such players as Elton John, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood and The Chieftains. Dave was voted Bassist of the Year at the 1997 Nashville Music Awards.

To round out these tracks, Tony and Dave hired top guitarists, bassists, drummers and more, collecting a roster of the most devastating names in rock and country music today.

JM4™  Looper offers an extensive collection of modern and historic guitar tones including 200+ artist-created presets, 150+ song-based presets, 12 Line 6 original amp models and a stunning collection of effects for guitar and vocals. There's even room for 36 presets of your own creation.

Just like most of us, each Line 6 original amp model has a light side and a dark side. Or, in some cases, a dark side and darker side.


  RED GREEN
Clean Crisp, shimmering clean tones and warm jazz tones. Glassy clean tones like those from the late 60s/early 70s. Inspired by* a '73 Hiwatt® Custom 100.
Twang Classic, glassy high-end with some snap and bite. Inspired by* a Fender® blackface'65 Twin Reverb?? and a blackface'64 Deluxe Reverb® Swingin' rockabilly tone a la vintage tweed. Inspired by* a '53 Fender® tweed Deluxe Reverb®, a '58 Fender® tweed Bassman® and a '60 Gibson® Explorer®
Blues From gritty, swampy clean tones to syrupy smooth drive tones. Inspired by* a mix of a '65 Marshall® JTM-45, a '58 Fender® Bassman®, a '63 Fender® Vibroverb and a Supro® Early British rock tone made famous by the Beatles the Stones. Inspired by* a fawn Vox® AC-30 with an updated and expanded tone control circuit
Crunch Classic crunchy tone popularized by many early metal bands. Inspired by* a '68 Marshall® Plexi 50-watt The infamous brown sound inspired by* a '68 Marshall® Plexi 100-watt with a few added extras: jumped input channels and a Variac transformer
Metal Tight and punchy high-gain sound. Inspired by* a Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® Aggressive high-gain sound. The mid knob sweeps the tone spectrum: set to minimum for fuzz-pedal characteristics; set to noon for creamy, modern high-gain; crank it for Class A carnage
Insane Famed and feared bone-crushing, brain-piercing grind. Inspired by* the Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® red channel Short of a complete meltdown, as much input-gain distortion as possible while retaining tonal definition and character
