Do Live and Jamstix Jive?

Post by Tallisman » Wed May 09, 2007 7:55 am

hello all

I was wondering if any of you are using jamsitx with live successfully? I have heard amazing things about it and I am eager to learn of your real world experience.

I came across this: http://www.rayzoon.com/groupbuy07.html
and i have heard some good things about it...
the videos look nice, and the price seems nice, and potentially great!

what are your thoughts?

cheers,
T.

Jamstix seemed pretty cool but since it's Win-only I tried not to get into it too much..

Live + Jamstix = 'Jive' :lol:

There is a Demo, give it a try.

My opinion is it is pretty useless and the Jam feature (which is its whole claim to fame) a joke. It's about as useful and very much so like the drum loops on a piano like the Casio's.

Groove Agent II would get you a lot further or a good loop library.

I know nobody here was looking for a vocabulary lesson. But I like to help when I can. I don't have any personal experience with Jamstix, but I do know that "jibe" is the most appropriate word given the context.

I have tried the demo and it is killer... I looked into GA2 i have GA... but you can't use other Drum products sounds in GA... in Jamstix you can use BFD and EZD sound banks

I downloaded the demo... watched the videos did the tutorials and it works as advertised. You can control how flamboyant your Jamstix drummer is. I use it to create basis for a track... and what's killer is that, while the sounds that come with it are very good in deed, you can use it with your other high-end drum module sounds!

I wanted something that would allow me to get the feel of a real live and proficient drummer. Jamstix does! It really is wicked... I am in on the group buy... Hopefully a few more folks will be to and we'll all get it and v.2.0 for $69 bucks... as it stands now, $90 bucks seems like a steal.

arrange window, not clip. add jamstix to a track as an instrument insert, and then do this (forget the sonar part... live does it too): http://www.rayzoontech.com/demos/jamsti ... ee_jam.avi
