The Halo setting was something that stood out for me as currently I use another pedal that gives me a ethereal string section quality to my reverb as it engages my direct signal. The Halo setting, coupled with a delay (digital or not) made for a shimmer sitting right…..on…top of the sound and opened up a series of creative choices that didn’t present themselves until using the Polara. Studio guys might enjoy the Polara as the reverb signal itself has a very respectable bottom end in the EQ, this might work well for percussionist that wish to add a degree of body to their sound and add dimension to their outgoing sound.
The Jam Man Vocal XT is (drum roll) dedicated solely to vocal looping. This is reflected by the XLR-in and the XLR-out for true mic level signal. It has very intuitive operations with single button record/overdub then double tap stop and features the ability to take out the last thing you put in. This is attractive to me as it was very quick in undo/redo function. The Jamsync function is very, very, very cool…I don’t want to spoil a future blog and/or video…So look for more on that in the coming weeks.
I plan on writing a more in depth review of the Digitech products I invested a morning at NAMM looking at and an evening here in Vegas performing on. Keep an eye out for it.
Gear wasn’t the only thing showcased at the NAMM show, personalities were on full display as well. More so than the post-apocalyptic –zombie bands. (Some of the nicest guys I met….honestly) but world class musicians who are heralding their own lines of products.
