Thought I'd start a new thread on the Trio+ as opposed to the original Trio pedal. I have just got one as has member Platefire and I know member Obsessed is waiting on one to arrive. Spent quite a bit of time yesterday fiddling around with it and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. I'm not sure you could use it live as Digitech claim, but it is great for generating backing tracks to play over. As Platefire said in another thread, it sounds better with the drum and bass through a PA (or monitor speakers in my case). It works fine through the front end of a clean valve amp but separating the two signals sounds best. I tried quite a few loops, a few soul/funky things, a Cream style Strange Brew rip off, a 2-5-1 jazz progression and the chord progression for jazz standard Autumn Leaves. All worked well, but I couldn't get anything out of the metal setting - more than likely my bad there! So much to learn and explore with this pedal. The built in effects are ok, but I prefer using it with the pedalboard in the FX loop, which works well. One thing I'm most impressed with is that the bassline changes subtly each time a loop goes around lending a slight variation to things which is less tiring on the ears. Very clever! Some of the sounds are a little synthesised, especially when heard in isolation, but once you get a couple of guitar lines on there, it all blends in nicely. I look forward to hearing any other views on this neat little tool - I'm off to try it with some lap steel!
