This thing rocks!I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought the Line 6 JM4 Looper. I read reviews good and bad, some criticizing the quality of the sound. It didn't take me long to realize that the JM4 is a great sounding unit that allows you to jam and lay down your own multiple tracks. There are tons of effects, songs, and presets and you can even run your mp3 player through it n play along with your favorite songs. Easy to use. I highly recommend this unit.

Line6 JM4 looperThis is the single best tool I have ever used to improve my playing. We all get into ruts with our practice, so to dial in a groove (drums or drums+bass) you've never heard and devise rhythm and lead layers is the ultimate stretch, like sitting in with studio musicians...your "vocabulary" will go through the roof. The only minus is I wish I had more tone/effect control at the footswitches. Overall this is some of the best money you can spend to improve your playing.

Line 6 JM4 LooperI just recently bought a Kustom 65 Watt amp. It is a very loud amp but a little tricky to get the right sound and tone dialed in. I bought the JM4 a couple of weeks ago. After buying the JM4 I was able to get the sound and tone dialed in right away. I bought it mainly for the looping effect and for working on inprovising. I have not used the looper as much as I thought. I have just been playing and inprovising over the Drums and Guitar to improve my timing. This was well worth the money. I love that it has a headphone jack, my Kustom amp does not. This allows me to play into the night and not distub everone. So far the only negative is no On/Off Switch which seems to be the norm for pedals and the JM4 should have the updated Firmware before it leaves the store.
Great product, I am having a blast with the JM4 and my Drummer never takes a break or gets tired.

the best looperGrooves...Drums,guitar or aux/mic with a couple of hundred effect presets . Tone eq reverb 2 effect wheels and 12 amp models....soo you got a great looper.....you take the groove or drum part and add the guitar or aux/mic part on in layers record or ja,....you can add the guitar and then the mic/aux part all in no particular ordet when layering for recording
And it does be a 100 endless jam tracks......you select a song or groove to play guitar or mic/aux part to....looping it it records the whole jam...I hve been using like nonstop for a few days

Great fun, with loads of features. It is quickly becoming a must have in my gear set.The Good: 2 separate effects loops, electric guitar oriented with the knobs on the top, mic/acoustic guitar oriented in the menu system. Aux input is selectable as to which effects to use. Cd/mp3 input. Level and/or volume controls for everything, combined with a direct outs let this thing work as a 4 channel mixer if needed. The loops and drums are great, and you can add more as wav files on an SD card. Firmware can be updated, which has already improved my JM4 (came with V2.0). The looping onto a drum track is easy, and overdubs are more easy. Record your own jams/songs, and transfer to the 'puter using an SD card for further editing/ emailing/ cd making. You can bypass amp modeling, and just use the effects, or you can skip those also and run your POD into the JM4.
The Bad: If you are going to rely on it for background during live performances, you may want to tailor your sets to give you time to update the memory during the set rather then planning a break every 1/2 hour, it is pretty quick if your organized. It doesn't have an input for my FVB Short board. The 2 second preview of songs & drums that are internal, does not preview what is on the SD card as you scroll through the listings.

So far so goodOverall this is a good device. The backing tracks are excellent and you have 300 guitar tones to choose from. The only negatives are that the level of the preset tones varies and there is no deep editing of the effects. When changing keys on the backing tracks the tempo changes also although this hasn't been a big deal to me as this is for me primarily a way to practice new techniques and the change in tempos is a nice challenge. There are some pretty good demo videos on Line 6's site although they just touch the surface of what this can do. This is a good device.

good-n-badthis is my 1st purchase of a line-6 product and as far as quality go's i'm well impressed this thing is built like a tank and looks like a roll-royce.
once you've been through the manual it all makes sence and there is lots more info on the line-6 website, the backing tracks are good, they have intros but no endings which i found sought of spoilt things somewhat, i spose you could download some tracks to sd card and work things that way.all said the machine has been well thought out, you can even rename your recordings with plenty of other options too:

Line JM 4 6 LooperNot a bad unit. Looks great. Built like a rock. It is very solid and should hold up to every night use. It was very easy to use. If you get stuck you can thumb thru the manual and find most anything you need to know very fast. I would have liked to see a foot controlled switch for changing between the Guitar and the Mic so that you could record the guitar as needed and then the mic as needed, but other than that it had some great backing tracks to play along with or to create your own songs.Another nice feature, it comes with the power supply. Nothing else to buy except maybe some extra cables to hook it to your amp and mixer if you want stereo sound.
