After playing with the Digitech Trio+ and doing a gig with it, I will say that the three things that I don't like about it are:
1. There are no song endings. The only way to end a song is to have a small mixer at your side so that loops, drums and bass can all be faded while you play your guitar wth one hand. You can play until the end of a measure but the drums stop abruptly.
2. The drums and bass do not recognize a push and therefore don't accent any pushes.
3. There is no way to slow the tempo and have the drums and bass follow.
WITH THAT SAID, THIS PEDAL IS A BLAST AND THE ADDITION OF THE LOOPER IS SWEET!!!
The parts are easy to create as long as you strum the basic chords! Save any advanced playing for the loops. You can create 5 different song parts and chain them together to form a complete song.
The Trio software allows you to name songs and place them in any order you want so making sets of up to 12 songs is very easy using your computer. I highly recommend this great pedal!!! Who am I? Nobody! :) Just an old guy that still loves to Rock!!

Oh yeah, if you want to use it to gig, get the foot switch!!

I sent this unit back very disappointed. The drums sound great and the Bass sounds realistic but the unit is nothing more than a fancy sequencer which you can do with a good portable digital recorder and drum machine. Its intuitive features are OK for simple three chord progressions. But use in a full song it becomes unwieldy and complicated. It requires more time to learn how program/sequence it than I was willing to give. The device's learn function doesn't always pick out the right tempo nor the right progression so its undependable on the fly on stage. Maybe as a practice unit for Rock or Blues lead guitar players to learn licks, it would serve a purpose but its a bit pricey in my opinion to have limited uses. As a former band musician gone solo acoustic performer, I had high hopes for this unit to ad dimension to my solo performances. I decided on a different portable drum machine with drum fills on demand and was glad I did.

    Comments about DigiTech Trio+ Band Creator Plus Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

    As a 25 year pro player performing over 400 solo gigs each year I'm always looking for something to enhance my act. I sometimes use a looper and when I saw the 1st generation Trio 2 years ago I thought it'd be great to have a bass player and drummer in a box but sadly the 1st gen Trio was NOT a looper. I experimented with the 1st generation Trio and was so disappointed I sent it back for a refund witch MF kindly agreed... However, the new Trio+, with it's addition of a looper, SD card and bass options make this little unit something that can be used on the LIVE gig! I have already used up the 12 song capacity on 6 SD cards for enough tunes for more than 3 hours. I DON'T NEED NO STINKING BAND!

    Comments about DigiTech Trio+ Band Creator Plus Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

    The first thing to say is this is not for beginners. If you can't change chords quickly and keep a steady rhythm, it will sound just the way you do and you will be disappointed in yourself and the device. I have had this thing about two weeks and am blown away by it. I can't imagine the number of patents involved in producing this. I was able to use my old Digitech footswitch to control the unit by my foot to change song parts and rhythm grooves. So I highly recommend their optional FS3X especially if you want to use it live. It will also read keyboard chords and grooves although it is a bit trickier to establish a steady rhythm because of the nature of piano itself as opposed to guitar which it is primarily designed for. Go for it, take the plunge, money well spent.

          I started using this right out of the box. I would also suggest buying the foot switch as well. Will make things a lot easier.
          I was writing songs in seconds.
          I love doing rhythm and just jamming with the bass and drums.

            Comments about DigiTech Trio+ Band Creator Plus Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

            The Trio Plus is a great practice tool. Lay down a chord progression and it takes it from there. I use it for jazz, so its perfect for walking bass lines and basic jazz beats. Enough variation can be added with part changes (styles, intensity, simple bass lines, etc) to keep long solos interesting, like a session with a real trio adding changes to the bass and drum lines. The looper does a great job syncing with the drum/bass loop so I can add the chord progressions to the main loop. It's hard to ask for more without sounding greedy.

            As a Bass Player I plugged in to the guitar input and played my melody and to my surprise it composed a perfect drum beat and super bass line that I could not even play. Just that simple. For you guitar players this unit is a dream for small performance and practice. So easy to create your hooks and ideas. Still working with this box, so far has been a lot of fun. Technology is great huh...

              Have only had the Trio for a short period of time, and because there is precious little hard documentation, figuring out how to make it work best is like having to do the homework you hated.
              My initial attempt- a simple chord progression produced drums and bass, but was stumped to hear where the chord changes took place....and it has been sitting ever since... So no doubt this unit would be quite useful once you figure it out.....but for most of you that probably will take time... My friend- an excellent lead guitar player and usually digitally friendly also was somewhat dumbfounded with his unit.

                  The Trio+ is an exceptional piece of equipment. It's simple to learn how to use yet sophisticated enough to produce very professional backing tracks. Keep in mind its not as flexible as multi-track recording but it then it doesn't have to be. I use it to try out new ideas and create backing tracks for songs I've played (solo) for many years. The Trio+ delivers!

                          Excellent tool to improve timing, improvising, lead, etc. I do not use several functions such as saving, software use, constructing multi part songs, etc. but they do work well. After investing some time in learning how to use those features it will be worth the time spent. Do not think that you have to be a guitar master to use this. If you are just slightly past playing a few chords, this can be a great thing for filling out you playing melody or to just noodle over the cord progression and band you create. I use frequently to noodle with because everyone's busy live makes it difficult to get together very often. An optional 3 button foot switch isn't worth the trouble or board space for me. I did buy one, but now use it on other equipment.

                              • Practice of scales and ideas

                              Comments about DigiTech Trio+ Band Creator Plus Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

                              It is a great tool for practice of scales/modes/ideas...The drum and bass sound quality is very good even through headphones. I suggest using good quality, over the ears headphones. The effects loop allows me to connect my entire rig of effect processor and stomp boxes so that I get "my" guitar sound.

                              The built in distortion sound in this unit is pretty bad...The clean sound is also not so great...So, use your' own rig.
                              Also, the device does a lot but it takes a lot of getting used to using it...Read the manual and keep it near by. I've been playing over 30 years and with any new gear like this there is a learning curve.

                              Comments about DigiTech Trio+ Band Creator Plus Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

                              I sent this unit back very disappointed. The drums sound great and the Bass sounds realistic but the unit is nothing more than a fancy sequencer which you can do with a good portable digital recorder and drum machine. Its intuitive features are OK for simple three chord progressions. But use in a full song it becomes unwieldy and complicated. It requires more time to learn how program/sequence it than I was willing to give. The device's learn function doesn't always pick out the right tempo nor the right progression so its undependable on the fly on stage. Maybe as a practice unit for Rock or Blues lead guitar players to learn licks, it would serve a purpose but its a bit pricey in my opinion to have limited uses. As a former band musician gone solo acoustic performer, I had high hopes for this unit to ad dimension to my solo performances. I decided on a different portable drum machine with drum fills on demand and was glad I did.
