Application

Q: How do I record from both the Guitar and Mic inputs at the same time on the JM-4 Looper?
A: You can only record from either the Guitar input or the Mic/Aux input using the Record Select button on the left side of the pedal, but not both at the same time. The AUX input can be routed to be recorded in conjunction with either the Guitar input for guitar amp and effect processing, or the Mic input with the vocal processing effects by holding down the Record Select button, then selecting your routing option from the screen.

Known Issues

-Quick Capture = Hold the UNDO switch and then hold down REC switch (not REC + UNDO as it is silkscreened on the unit). In other words, first step on UNDO switch and keep it held down while also stepping on REC switch.

-The "Clip" LED lights up upon powering up the JM-4. This is normal power-up behavior.

-Some of the Artist/Song Presets from the original Spider III release were not included in the JM-4 release due to space restrictions.

-The Guitar Tone Presets (70’s sounds by Song Title) are simply guitar tones. They are not backing tracks. The backing tracks on the JM-4 are original compositions written and recorded by studio musicians specifically for Line 6 Spider Jam and JM-4 products.
