Jamstix is a new breed of virtual drum software, which simulates a drummer inside of your sequencer/host. Unlike most other drum modules, which either provide static MIDI patterns or an engine that combines pre-recorded MIDI patterns, Jamstix features a state-of-the-art realtime simulation of a human drummer down to the calculation of the time it takes a drummer to move an arm from drum A to drum B. This means that arrangements created with Jamstix are always humanly playable (no ten-armed drummers!) and also always unique and varied since they are created based on rules and not static patterns.
When Jamstix 1 was released in March of 2005, it was quickly praised for its new and innovative approach using rule-based groove intelligence. Jamstix 3 takes this approach to new heights with an improved interface, more styles and drummers and countless new features and enhancements. The new "song builder" function can create a full drum arrangement with many parts and fills in seconds and brand-new stock kits offer incredible realistic sound reproduction.
Jamstix 3 is arguably the most powerful and flexible drummer simulation on the market today. Whether you are a hobbyist or a professional, whether you are in need of a jamming partner or a drum arrangement tool, a student wanting to learn more about drumming style or a songwriter needing to create a complex and unique drum track quickly, whether you have no drum module at all or have every high-end drum library on the market and wish to get the most realistic grooves out of them, Jamstix 3 is the answer to all of it.
Advanced Virtual Drummer
High Quality Sounds
Integrates With Other Sound Modules
Jamstix can interact with your MIDI or audio input by adjusting velocity and using play rules, such as hihat/ride switching and snare head/sidestick switching as well as rhythm reduction giving you the feel of playing with a human drummer!
Jamstix can be used with any e-drum kit and fully supports the TD-20 V-Drums, including bow/shank hihat, foot splashing, aftertouch cymbal choking and snare position sensing.
Supports Your Existing MIDI grooves
Jamstix can import your existing MIDI drum grooves as well as Jamstix 1 rhythms and use them as styles for playing by the drummer models. This means a static 1-bar MID file grooove comes to live by being played with the feel, accents and fills of the Jamstix virtual drummers!
