Jamman Solo - Decrease time between loop

I bought the Digitech Jamman solo about a month ago and really enjoy it. Question: how do i decrease the amount of time between a loop? For example, I lay down a rhythm track and play it back, but when the loop ends there's about three seconds of dead air before the loop starts again. Can i decrease the time between the loop so there's no pause and it just plays back continuously? Thanks

You'll have to work on your timing. I'm still fiddling around with mine, but it seems to record to the closest bar, so if there is dead air, you'll need to figure out the timing of what you're playing a little better to fill the rest of the bar.

I think they call it quantizing, when the looper takes what you played and expands it out to the rest of the bar. As far as I know, the JamMan does not do that.
Hydroxic acid, kills thousands of people every year. Studies have shown lakes and rivers all over North America contain high levels hydroxic acid. Currently governments have taken no action against this life threatening chemical.

You are definitely doing something wrong. Try playing past where you hit the footswitch. Also there may be a minimum loop length, so make sure the loop isn't very short. Make sure you aren't playing and thinking the countdown is part of the loop.

The Jamman quantizes to the the tempo led. Quantizing isn't for getting a seamless loop. It's to stretch the loop to the beat. If you don't hit the footswitch at the right time the loop will glitch when it wraps.
