The DigiTech Trio+ band creator and looper pedal is one of the most powerful practice, writing, and performance tools a guitarist can ask for. The basis of the pedal is DigiTech's popular Trio technology that listens to your playing and automatically plays bass and drum accompaniment. But the Trio+ offers five additional genres for getting the right feel. An onboard looper lets you lay down rhythm guitar parts for each loop. And the Trio+ lets you store and sequence these loops any way you choose to build full songs for your performances.
The heart and soul of this pedal is the same technology that made the original Trio pedal a massive hit. You choose a genre and a style variation and begin playing. The Trio+ will listen to your guitar and instantly offer the correct bass and drum parts to fill the song.
On the Trio+ you'll enjoy five additional genres of accompaniment that the original Trio pedal didn't offer. And you can instantly and easily change the tempo of your songs and loops without affecting their pitch, which means you can experiment with different tempos without breaking your creative flow.
Not everyone wants a busy bass line. The Trio+ pedal offers three bass line modes, ranging from simple to complex to suit whatever style of music you're playing.
Onboard the Trio+ pedal is a powerful looping function that is the same as DigiTech's powerful JamMan line of looping effects. The looper footswitch controls the whole thing, allowing you to record, play back, undo, and redo songs at a whim.
The Trio+ pedal is equipped with a Micro SD card slot, and includes an 8 GB card. You can expand the power of your DigiTech Trio+ pedal as you wish by using cards with larger storage capabilities. It's a great way to capture new song ideas while they're fresh.
Use the Trio+ pedal to learn up to five different song parts (intro, verse, chorus and so on) and combine them into a full song. You can store songs along with their loops to SD card (up to 12 songs with loops on the included SD card). To make it even easier to manage your songs and loops, free librarian software is available at the DigiTech website.
The Trio+ pedal will become your favorite song-writing partner. When looping, you can save your different sections into one of five Part locations. Each Part can be accessed instantly and arranged as a 5-step sequence. You can move each section around as you please.
Pressing the Alt Time button on the Trio+ allows you to change the tempo for a song Part independently of the other Parts. That means you can have timing and tempo variations throughout your song, whether you want a subtle speed variation or a drastic change in tempo for a certain part.
You're able to control the intensity of the backing band for each individual Part, allowing you to bring up the volume for choruses and dial it back a bit for quieter sections. Individual volume controls for Bass, Drums, and loops allow you to fine-tune your band mix as a whole.
The TRIO+ is a simple-to-use guitar pedal that listens to the way you play and automatically generates bass and drum parts that match your song. Just plug your guitar into the TRIO+, press the Band footswitch to teach the TRIO+ your chords and rhythm, then press the Band footswitch again to start playing with your own personal band! Bass and drum levels can be adjusted for the perfect mix using the TRIO+'s Bass and Drums knobs. The TRIO+ also features a Simple Bass button lets you select between 3 bass line modes for busy or simple bass lines.
Pushing the Band Creator™ paradigm further, the TRIO+ also allows you to loop and custom sequence your looped guitar parts to create full songs on the fly. Press the TRIO+'s Looper footswitch to record a loop along with an unlimited number of overdubs. The Loop level can be individually controlled using the TRIO+'s Loop knob. Loops can be recorded by themselves, operating just like a traditional looper, or along with the band. You can also apply built-in effects to your guitar signal by enabling the TRIO+'s Guitar FX button, or connect your favorite effects to the TRIO+'s FX Send and FX Return jacks.
The TRIO+ provides 12 music genres to choose from including: Blues, R&B, Rock, Alternative Rock, Metal, Pop, Electronic Pop, Hip-Hop, Country, Folk, Latin, and Jazz. 12 song styles are available for each genre and can be selected using the TRIO+'s Style encoder, including selection between 3/4 and 4/4 time signatures. Multi-colored LEDs around the TRIO+'s Style encoder indicate which styles best match your song.
The TRIO+ can learn up to 5 different song parts, perfect for creating an intro, verse, chorus, bridge and outro. Song parts can be recalled on-the-fly as the song plays back or pre-programmed as a sequence for automated playback. An optional DigiTech FS3X Footswitch can be connected to the TRIO+'s Control In jack for additional handsfree control with 3 modes of operation to select from.
Up to 12 songs along with loops can be stored to the TRIO+'s Micro SD Card (included). Need to create more songs? No problem. Just insert a new SD Card and you're ready to start teaching the band your new songs. To manage all your songs and loops on a computer, download the free Librarian Manager software from digitech.com, available for Windows® and Mac®.
