The 5 loop Mini Effect Gizmo is 3.25 x 8.5 x 1.6 inches

San Diego, CA (February 28, 2011) -- Fans of RJM Music Technology’s popular Effect Gizmo have a new option for their pedalboards or racks, the 5 loop Mini Effect Gizmo. "At a mere 3.25 x 8.5 x 1.6 inches (21.6 cm x 8.9 cm x 4.1 high), this smaller, more convenient package easily fits in places where larger switchers would not be appropriate, such as underneath or on top of a pedal board, or in a rack drawer,” according to Ron Menelli, president and chief engineer.

“This small unit packs a big punch because it uses the same buffer technology and click stopper as our bigger switchers, only with fewer loops,” says Menelli. “Both touring and recording performers will appreciate the excellent tone quality and our improved buffer and click stopper circuits.”

Other features include:
• Pro quality and durability, made in the USA
• Internal +/- 15v operation for better tone and more headroom
• Small, fits in many places other switchers can’t
• Easy to use
• Can be combined with any other RJM Music products to build a larger system
• Full MIDI compatibility insures interoperability with third party products.

How to Reamp Your Guitar | Recording Dojo

This well-established, simple technique opens up a new world of sonic possibilities.

[Originally published February 14, 2022]
Welcome to another Dojo! This time I’m going to show you how to reamp your guitar and explore some creative ways you can re-amps other tracks as well (soft synths, vocals, drums, etc.). In my earlier column “Why Guitarists Shouldn’t Diss DIs,” I mentioned the benefits of using a DI for creative recording. If you have a DI box, dust it off! You’ll need it when I show you how to get more out of your DI-recorded guitar and bass tracks by reamping them into your pedals and amps to capture new perspectives and even add some new reverberant spaces. Tighten up your belts, the Dojo is now open.
