What Joyo have to say
“The looper mode has an auto-align function and features stick count-in for your first recording. The 40 minutes of cycle recording time is more than plenty, with unlimited overdub recordings you can add additional layers, undo and redo to your hearts content.
In drum machine mode, you can choose 7 genres of drum pattern with 7 different drumbeats in each, there are plenty of beats to select from. The tempo of drum patterns can be set up by using the Tap tempo button and the LED of the pedal flashes with the beat.
What’s more, O.M.B will sync your recorded loop to the drum groove pattern. With drum pattern options of Pop, Rock, Blues, Metal, Punk, Jazz and Latin there is plenty to select from.
Use the JOYO OMB as a stand alone looper, use it as a drum machine with tap tempo to jam along to, the OMB will be a favourite for sole performers and for practice sessions.
The R Series, or Revolution series from JOYO are the 4th generation of guitar effects and all feature some very cool ambient LED lighting. The lights can be toggled from a switch on the rear of the pedal..3 modes of lighting are available to adjust when they come on.
‘Sync’ to the footswitch – The LED ambient lighting on the front and rear of the pedal with shine bright when the footswitch is pressed, also illuminating the LED effect indicator on the top of the pedal.
‘Always’ – The lights are always on, but the pedal is only activated when you press the footswitch and the LED effect indicator comes on. The OMB ambient lights flash in tempo to the drumbeat.
‘Off’ – Okay, so Tron may not be your favourite and you want to stick to something a little less futuristic. The lights are off, the LED effect indicator comes on when you stomp on it and activate the pedal..
The pedal features controls for”
Overall it’s a no brainer at this price, if you’re not looking to drop hundreds on a fancy looper pedal. Instead you’re looking for a capable pedal that will give you a strong set of features at an middle of the park price. This is the pedal for you.
