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.
