Digitech Jamman Solo XT Stereo Looper (Discontinued)
With over three decades of experience building loopers, DigiTech pulled no punches with the JamMan Solo XT, a feature packed looper in a standard size stompbox.
It starts off with an already impressive total loop time of 36 minutes, but it can go as far as 16 hours when you utilize a micro SDHC card.
You can divide the loop time into 200 internal memory slots and 200 external memory slots, for a total of 400 loops, which is expansive considering the unit's size.
While it is primarily meant for guitar players, this pedal comes with an Aux input, that lets you record music and backing tracks into memory slots, giving you instant accompaniment for practice or performance.
Other features include the ability to adjust the tempo of your loops without changing the pitch, auto-quantize, multiple stop modes, and it comes with a handy built-in metronome with multiple time signatures and rhythm sounds.
Finally, the JamMan Solo XT comes with DigiTech's modular JamSync technology, which lets you connect multiple compatible devices for multi-track looping.

One user aptly put the overall market sentiment into three letters, stating that the DigiTech JamMan Solo XT is the "MVP" (Most Valuable Pedal) among standard size loopers. Even experts chime in, commending DigiTech for stuffing this pedal with features that surpass what others in the same price and size range offers.
Ironically, its bulk of features do not impress everyone, but they do commend its overall sound and performance. Experienced guitarists recommend getting the optional 3-switch foot controller to make better use of the pedals features.
Unfortunately the JamMan Solo XT has been discontinued, so if you can't find one second hand, take a look at the new options we recommend in our guide to The Best Loop Pedals.
