DOWNLOADING WAVE FILES

08/18/2005


Just thought a few of you would like to know this. When downloading .wav files into the Jamman, there is short protocol to follow:
1) .wav files need to be 16 bit, 44.1K sampling rate
2).wav files must be MONO, not stereo files.
3) Create a folder in the JAMMAN drive that shows up when you plug in the USB connection, by right clicking, select NEW>FOLDER, and name the folder LOOP01, LOOP02, etc.
4)Before dragging the .wav file into the created folder, rename the wav file LOOP.wav


Hope that this helps anyone out there downloading wav files to their machine.

Re: importing wav files caveat

09/19/2005


good info from ageless - one other caveat - you need to make sure there is an xml file that is created when ever the jamman creates a new loop - what I did is just copy one of the xml files from one of the provided sample loops and use that with my loop.wav's - I've emailed digitech for a breakdown of the actual xml parameters so I could edit the file as desired but have yet to get a reply......I plan on experimenting - saving loops with different parameters and noting the resultant xml file - I will post here my results.....
my loops are looping happily, however!
ps: no one had the official digitech 3 button footswitch in stock ($60 list) so I found a TC-Helicon 3 button footswitch for $20 new (includes 20ft. cord!) at GC and it works great

Besides the JamMan, I also own the GNX4... The optional GNXFC footswitch I got for the '4 also works with the JamMan - they're about $40.

Alrighty, I did everything that needed to be done.
.wav
16 bit momo
441
saved as LOOP in a folder LOOP11
The JamMan still will not recognize the loop after transferring it.
Any ideas?

What is everyone using to edit their wavs?
please email me if possible:

Also, after transferring it, when I disconnect the USB cable, and then go back into the pedal through USB, the loop is gone out of the folder.

Several findings

11/16/2005


About the stiffness, you can easily remove the spring. I did not find anything suitable to replace the spring with; but I am experimenting. Also if you just remove the spring, and put back the cover part, the unit works (on, off) but I think the microswitch will not last too much, since it holds the weight of the cover metal piece.

With respect the computer editing. I uploaded some loops in the computer. I reversed them, and stored in another folder (I created the folder with a new number where I knew there was not a loop stored) and stored it in the Jamman, and it worked perfectly. I think any wav file you put in the Jamman via the computer will work, of course you have to add the xml file as well. I will do it for intros etc.

One thing that concerns me is the ability of creating new loops on the stage. If you are creating the first loop (verse), and you want to create a new loop (chorus for example), I think you have to stop the playing loop, move to an empty loop number and start recording (for example the chorus). If you want to do this, without stopping... I do not think it is possible with the Jamman.

Any suggestion?

I just bought a new Jamman and are still experimenting, but I would like to download some percussion and bass loops. Where can I find these wav files on line to do this?

Hello everyone. Firstly, let me make it clear I do NOT own a Jamman yet, but I'm researching it's capabilities in order to supplement my Duel Echoplex Digital Pro set up live.

The dominant reason for my interest in this product stems from the apparent ability to interface and exchange data with a PC, namely, transfering perfectly constructed loops to my jamman to append my live show's looping applications.. perhaps even to ADD overdubs to these loops live as well, but that is far from a priority.


Seems there is one major oversight with the Digitech Jamman, that being, It is impossible to import .Wav files created entirely on your 'puter, even if they are perfect sample level accurate without some appending .xml file telling the Jamman what to do.

Seems to me that creating cool loops on your PC and downloading them into your Jamman (albeit with the overly verbose naming protocols & file architecture) for live use, is in fact, impossible.



It would appear that this is never going to happen, unless you are prepared to sacrifice a generation of audio degradation:

Perhaps the only way to do this is to physically pass the audio via the audio output of your soundcard to the Aux input of the jamman, with auto record setting on, and live with the inconsistencies of your ability to stomp the end of the said loop... something that just doesn't fly in the pro world of a touring musician.

Either way, any externally created audio file (.Wav) must somehow carry metadata instructing the Jamman how to 'play' this file. People have been talking about appending the .xml file associated with each loop, and preying they write the correct commands for this process to be realized.

Can someone out there provide a falsifiable and logical means to achieve the playback of externally created .Wav audio files in the Jamman without physical transfer?

If not, I dont think it is too unfair to state that Digitech has a duty of care to provide some modicum of software to make this necessary and practical application a reality, or a functional work-around/firmware revision to get there by proxy..

Thanks for your time,

Flame away ;)

Audio conversion software is the easy way to go. Something like this:
