Becoming a one man band is about to become way easier thanks to the DigiTech Trio, a guitar pedal that can automatically add drum and bass parts that match your guitar playing. It won’t fix your lyrics though.
To prime the Trio, you just have to press the footswitch, play your guitar then press the footswitch again. It has separate level controls for the bass and the drums, adjustable tempo and two time signatures. It also has seven different genres, each with 12 styles. The Trio can also save up to three different sets at a time, so you can for instance have different verse and chorus sets.
The Trio isn’t meant to replace bass players or drummers during recording or live performances. It’s not The Bad Plus in a box. As mentioned in the video below, it’s for practicing and kickstarting songwriting sessions.
The DigiTech Trio will be available this March for $225 (USD). Check out DigiTech’s website for more on the pedal.
