A Full Band and Looper in One Box

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.

Create Your Own Backing Band

Drums and bass on demand

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.

More musical genres

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.

A bass player you can control

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.

Built-in Looping and Recording

Easy-to-use looping

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.

Record your loops to SD card

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.

Create and record up to 5 song parts

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.

Create your song as you go

Create individual parts for intro, verse, chorus, and so on

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.

Add tempo variations to your song

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.

Create a different mix for each song section

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.

You know what it's like to be in a band where EVERYONE gets along? Of course not! Nobody does. LOL This is as close as it gets. AND it makes those countless hours of practice worthwhile, and dare I say...fun. Finally. It inspires one to practice...and to even try new things: change up the tempo, change the genre, smack the bass player upside the head and have him simply play and not try to show off... LOL I don't know that I would use it live...but then that's not my thing. Though I CAN see quite a number of people using I that way. But...for practice, composing, and sharing your ideas...I think this one is hard to beat.

Trio plus

Very happy with this product. Can't beat it. A very nice accompany device ever put on the market.
Music background: Over fourthy years of singing and playing a few instruments.

Soloist with no audience

Straight out of the box without reviewing the instruction, I was able to set four separate drum and bass beat for songs I’ve been playing guitar to me, myself, and I. With the two added sounds am able to create with the TRIO+, I am now able expand my imagination of performing in front of large crowds of cheering fans while in my bedroom studio with my new band: “Me” on guitar, “myself” on bass, and “I” on drums.
Music background: Bedroom studio jammer

Fantastic backup

From the somewhat mixed reviews of the original Trio, I was wary of trying the Trio Plus. I don't know if the Trio Plus's algorithms have been significantly improved relative to the Trio or if the Trio just works for some and not for others, but I cannot imagine a better tool for practicing in a band-like environment, minus the other people and their issues. Based on reviews, I first tried inputting a basic rhythm (on beat only, etc.). The results were ok. Then I decided to go for it. 12-bar blues, shuffle. Bam: perfect accompaniment: a shuffle feel, a great groove on the bass, etc. Next, 12-bar blues, a nice little single note rhythm with swung eighths and triplets. Result: perfect accompaniment again, with the bass line obviously taken from my rhythm. Straight 5-6-7-6; again, perfect, with a bass line following the 5-6-7-6. Throw on some jazzy chords. Once again: perfect --- I felt like all I needed was some good wine and a cigarette smoke-infusion. I'm an engineer by day with some experience in DSP, and I am totally blown away by what the Trio team has accomplished with this pedal. The integrated looper is a huge upgrade over the original Trio. I played without my rhythm guitar accompaniment for a short while and realized that my rhythm contribution is indeed an important part of the overall sound. Perhaps the original Trio suffered for creating a trio rather than quartet sound. Then again, when my wife joins on keys, I don't see needing the rhythm guitar. Caveats: I'm not a sound snob --- I spend my time learning and playing rather than chasing tone. And I've played extensively with a looper, so perhaps my input to the Trio is sufficiently "regular" to make training easy.

This thing is a hoot! So easy to use right out of the box! Guitar Nerds will really dig this pedal! Very intuitive with no noticeable latency. Decent quick start guide but you will need to practice using it just like your instrument to get the full benefits and there are a bunch! Mahalos nui loa Sweetwater and my sales representative Skylar Willis for the great customer service as always!
