Rayzoon Technologies Introduces Jamstix VSTi Drummer
January 18, 2005
Rayzoon Technologies has announced Jamstix for Windows, a VSTi "acoustic drum brain" that emulates a human drummer that the user can jam with in real-time. It has its own sound engine but it can also sub-host other drum VSTis, such as BFD or DFH Superior. The plug-in is designed to recognize what you play and interact with you.
- Built-in multi-velocity drum sample player with controllable ambience and bounce samples
- Integrated VST sub-host allows usage of any VSTi drum synthesizer, such as BFD, NI Battery and DFH Superior.
- Jamming capability. Analyzes input (live MIDI or sequence) in real-time and develops rhythms and adjusts parameters instantaneously, giving you the feel of playing with a human drummer
- Limb-Priority-Control mechanism ensures that the output is at all times playable by a human drummer. You can layer rhythms and fills and accents as you wish and never have to worry about whether the result sounds realistic
- Built-in arranger allows easy control of rhythms,intros,fills and endings in sync with your sequencer
- Easy-to-use but powerful rhythm controls allow you to modify or create rhythms. Comes with a library of hundreds of rhythms ready to use
- Choose between free jam mode which creates new rhythms from scratch in real-time or key word jam, which is based on preset rhythms selected through key words
- Create drumming with just a few mouse clicks thanks to features such as velocity variance, auto-cymbals, random accents, probable notes and automatic switch rules, such as ride over hihat on high velocity, sidestick over snare on low velocity, no-ghosting on low velocity etc.
- Extensive pitch and velocity mapping allows the adaptation of any key layout
- Four separate outputs with compression
- MIDI output to host sequencer as well as export to MIDI file for maximum flexibility
Jamstix is scheduled for release for Windows in March/April 2005 at an estimatedprice of US$99.
