Has anyone else noticed how poorly the tap tempo works on this device? I have a lot of other pedals with tap tempo functions, and you can get it locked in with just two taps, three at most. On this thing you have to hit it multiple times before it will dial in and then just one tap can throw it off a couple of BPM. Plus it has this annoying lag while it’s waiting for another tap before you can get it to start. It’s like it’s waiting for four more taps before it realizes you’re done.
I also found the latching footswitch completely useless for tap tempo, and that was irritating because it said non-latching on the packaging. Waste of money.
The output on this thing is way too hot … it should be line level. You have to have the volume on practically nothing if you are running a guitar through it to an amp, and it’s hissy as all get out. Headphone jack does not fix this problem, either. The only way to tame it is run its output separately on a channel and dial the trim way way back. I don’t have a channel to waste on it playing live so I have to live with the hiss.
It would also be nice to be able to stop it from sending MIDI tempo when it’s not actually playing, as loopers will be responding to its tempo even if you are not using it.
I don’t know if any of these things can be fixed with firmware … obivously, not the output. But they’ve got to improve the tap tempo at least. For those of us who use it without programming setlist and just want to vary the tempo on the fly, it does not work well.
