How to start a new recording in synchro mode?

Synchro signal is transmitted on the down or first beat, that's why pressing pedal must be done before. Your JamMan will wait the start of your rythm to ensure you'll record in perfect sync !

Examples :

How to finish it?

For ending the loop, pedal could be pressed around the down beat.
If pressed...
Before : JamMan will wait the synchro signal (ie down beat) to stop recording and play the loop.
After : JamMan will correct the lenght, making a perfectly synced loop.
On it : Very nice! It would work, for sure! 

What are the minimal and maximal lenght for my loop?

The shortest loop you'll be able to record is tempo determined. Below 120bpm minimal lenght will be 2 beats, whereas over 120, it will be 4 beats.
Total lenght of your loop only can be a multiple of this 'root loop' : 2x, 3x, 4x ...etc...
If you're using several JamMan, every pedal could record a different lenght, multiple of the 'root loop'.

Is it possible to record immediatly when i press?

NO. JamSync system needs to wait the start of a loop for recording or playing.

If i change tempo, does my recorded loop will strech?

NO. It's not possible to change tempo without desynchronizing your recorded loop. You'll need to delete it and make another one with the new tempo.

Could i play a pre-recorded loop?

NO. JamSync only permits to do live recordings. Playing sample or pré-recorded loop in sync mode wouldn't strech it!

When i start playing my rythm, SyncMan's led doesn't blink immediatly. Is it normal?

YES. SyncMan needs to calculate incomming tempo and this take... a bit of time! The first sync signal is send 2 or 4 beats after start, depending of received tempo.

Is SyncMan firmware is upgradable?

YES. The updating software permits to flash the SyncMan memory.  Please see 'Support' page for more information.

What warranty?

Retractation time is 30 days counted from reception, and SyncMan (as all Custom Live Electronics signed devices) have 1 year warranty.
