Tru-Loop

So you have favorite stomp boxes that you just love and adore but you wish they were TRUE BYPASS pedals. Admit it. Everyone does. Well let Rocktron put a smile on your face with the Tru-Loop, our incredible new product that lets you add True Bypass to any non-true bypass effect! You read that right. Your wish has come true with the Rocktron Tru-Loop.

The original tone of the source input (such as that favorite pedal of yours) is unchanged! One more time: the original tone of the source input remains unchanged while using the Tru-Loop. The Rocktron Tru-Loop provides Serial or Parallel effects mixing. The “Return” can merge stereo effect output (RTS) to mono. The Tru-Loop can be used as a buffered A-B box as well. It can also be used as a 3 channel signal mixer.

D TUNING MADNESS ALERT:
Add an exciting new dimension to your sound using any distortion pedal and the Tru-Loop's capability to PARALLEL mix between Heavy Distortion and your guitar’s original clean sound! The Tru-Loop is great for 7 string or Metal D tuning to add a sense of focus and articulation to the fastest licks.

Part of the Rocktron Boutique Series of stomp boxes this pedal design comes in a rugged metal chassis with eye popping retro custom design laser etched artwork.

Controls on the Tru-Loop include MIX which allows the mix between the original audio input signal and the effect return. Full counter clockwise equals series effect. At 12 o’clock setting, you have 50% of the effect plus the original audio.

INPUT is for the original audio source. SEND is the original audio source to be used by the effect input. RETURN is the output of the effect. The footswitch on the Tru-Loop controls On/Off status (indicated by the LED). This stomp box runs on a 9V Alkaline battery. You may also use the Rocktron DC OnTap Universal Power Adaptor.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
