The JamSync feature

Undoubtedly, the most important feature, compared to the Solo. It lets you link two or more devices.

In this image we can see the two connectors for the synchronization.

Connectors

Two synchronized.

Example

JamManager

A free Digitech software for the organization of your loops, for example by creating lists and directories. Obviously, the Solo XT can be connected to the PC via the USB port.

Opinion

Like always, an excellent Digitech device. The Solo XT produces an high quality audio and, compared to the previous version, features a more complete set of inputs and outputs, and, in addition, a function to synchronize two or more units. With 200 internal memories it puts all the necessary at the user disposal, for a comfortable and professional job. It costs 140 euros. My personal opinion is that it is a justified price, if we consider all the features of this good product.

    A powerful Distortion suitable to Hard Rock, Metal, Trash Metal, Power Metal and so on. It has been designed to reproduce the feel of an high-gain tube amp. The analog circuit and the quality components justify the price.
