Main :: JM4 Looper

3 or 5 beat bars
by ejorg2002 on 2012-05-26 04:04:02.9030


JM4 is by default set for recording 4 beat bars. Is it possible to customize the looper for recording 3/4 or 6/8 or 5/4 measures? Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately the JM4 or Spider Jam's do not have the abilty to record in odd-meter time signatures. If you create a loop on a DAW program on a PC or Mac in 3/4, 5/4, 6/8, 12/8, 7/4 etc. you could import the 16-bit MONO 44.1K .wav file of this loop and load it into available memory as a "template" recording to layer additional takes on top of. The playback would be fixed to the tempo of the original recording, but it would cycle in that particular time signature.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
