Alernative ways to use Digitech Trio + beside from guitar in.
1) Do you want a backingtrack to a song you like?
Play the part from the song from aMp3/Spotify file you want to recreate. I get good results even on tracks with much going on.
If you repeat this process by seperating Intro,verse,bridge,outro into its own part. This way you may learn the whole song and you have your own backingtrack by combining tracks in any order.
I know its easy to find the chords via app or webpage but with this method the timing will be spot on and it give you many options with style,bass,tempo etc.
Learned a lot from this and helped me to understand the buildingblocks of making a song because it makes you the essential framework.
Did this with genres like reggea, hiphop and songs with difficult intros.
2) Do you know the rythm and chords of the song you want to recreate? If yes then just play the first note of each chord on the low strings. Like simple bass. Have after a while experienced that the Trio+ need mimimum first note if you have the timing. Rootnote and right timing always give you the basic canvas and then you have more options to layer.
3) New songs.
Love to play around with it and it wasnt till i used the orange colored 3/4 beats and changed the drummers approach I got full access. Then I started to record and use my tracks with other programs. And I love wjen u are stuck, and the trio get ubout of trouble.
4) If you have made a complete song or parts to incorporate with DAW or want this as mp3, you can do this.
- use program of choice and route the pedal via mixer or str8 to daw/recording sevice. Save each part (drum,bass,loop) on its own channel.
The files stored on MicroSD card are not seperated and the filename is unknown and unplayable.
5) For funky and bizzy Hiphop beats try playing triads fast or slow. Minor or major
Took me time to find out these solutions on my own. This great little pedal just squeeze it out of you.
I am very curious to try the Band In A BoX for PC. Looks like a great program. Been thinking to buy it for a while but I havent understood what it can and cant do yet.
Wow these are great tips - Thanks! I've had mine for a few months now and love it. My results are a bit mixed when I input a song via chord comping. You've given some good ideas I can try!
