Ask me how I know!?

I've read, more than once, about solo artists that are using this pedal "live" for their bass and drum parts.

I think it's a great pedal, I just wish it was better at song endings. It's almost like they didn't even consider that, in the design phase. That being said, I think there are creative ways to end songs, that might work.
I may find out soon, I'm going to try something new with a female singer that wants to be in a blues band. She is in a duo already, just acoustic, and she does all the bookings, etc.
I'm hoping that I can get this pedal to work for us so that we don't have to have 4 people in the band, and we can stick to smaller venues like her other duo does. It'll take a LOT of practice, of course, but I think it can be done.
Anyone here tried using the pedal, live?

I think if I wanted to use that tech I'd prerecord a track from the machine to some device and use that. Trio is a great practice partner but it surprises me a little too often to use live. That and the sound quality isn't wonderful to my ears. That said I've heard your playing and if anyone can make it work you can! Good Luck!

Wow, thanks thumbpicker! We had our first practice on Monday, and it went better than I thought it would.
One of the songs we're doing is "Misunderstood" by Tedeschi Trucks band. This is our most complicated song so far, requiring 4 different sequences, and more importantly, knowing when all the changes are coming.
But the real reason I bring this up, is because she was belting it out on vocals and really showed me that she can sing the blues! I may have stumbled onto a gold mine, all she needs is a little more confidence. Her voice sounds really close to Susan's in this song.
Looking forward to our next practice, and I'll be doing some reprogramming on the Trio+ in the meantime.

Misunderstood

Man, call me impressed.
Bill, do you also sing?

More confidence, I guess equals more gigs. Since she’s got the voice I bet it doesn’t take her too long.

So far, I have only done backup vocals, but I've been practicing a lot. I think I'll try recording myself first to see how I really sound, before "breaking out." ;)

walshb, good idea. Break out, man, break out!

In my church band, the pastor’s wife sings and is very good. She keeps bugging me to sing. I’ve told her that isn’t happening. I know I don’t sing well and I don’t want to prove it to her by embarrassing myself.
I just tell her I’ll sing when Ben sings. He’s our bass player and I’m pretty confident he won’t sing.
One time before we started our practice session I said to the band leader, man I wish I could sing. He said, just tell me when and I’ll put a mic in front of you.
I laughed pretty hard and said, no, I mean literally!

Lol! I sing in the car sometimes, I think I’m improving but again, I need to hear what I really sound like, and I’ve never recorded myself. Heck, I might be really good! ;)

You just might be!

I sing sometimes when I’m playing at home, and when my wife isn’t home.

Obviously you just need a Digitech Freqout, and end EVERY song with a burst of feedback.
