Jammit Does Windows(June 28, 2012)
HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jammit, Inc., creators of the award-wining Jammit® music technology platform, today launched the Windows® version of its free Jammit app. This brings the groundbreaking Mac OS and iOS application directly to even more musicians, vocalists, and fans wanting to learn, jam and record their favorite songs. Jammit delivers a stunning user experience, providing individual audio tracks within original multi-track recordings for musicians to isolate a specified instrument – guitar, keyboards, drums, vocals-- from the rest of the mix.
"The Jammit 'time machine' drops a musician or fan into their favorite band's recording session to practice, perform and experience the magic that has formed the history of popular music from the mid-1960's to present," said Scott Humphrey, Jammit founder and CEO. "With more than 80% of our fan base using PCs, it was a natural evolution for us to bring one of the most significant developments in music education technology directly to Windows users."
Released in beta in 2011 for iPad, iPhone, iPhone Touch & Mac, Jammit is revolutionizing music education by giving musicians a new way to access their favorite songs. As the first music software to isolate individual audio tracks within original multi-track master recordings, Jammit creates a virtual recording studio for musicians and fans. Jammit users practice and perform as they learn, jam and record along with their favorite songs. Each guitar, bass, drums, keyboard or vocal track within the dense mix of a song can be isolated for closer scrutiny, looped for extended practice or slowed down to a comfortable pace for beginning players, all without affecting the pitch. Jammit provides the world's most accurate transcriptions in standard notation or tablature.
"Musicians and fans can effectively 'join the band,' added Humphrey. "Jammit tracks provide every nuance of a selected performance for an exclusive experience that can redefine how musicians and singers learn and practice with their favorite artists."
Since the January launch at NAMM, hundreds of artists and tracks have been added to Jammit with more being added every day in a range of genres. The list includes Rush, Mastodon, Slayer, Soundgarden, Maroon 5, The Jackson 5, Michael Bublé, Robbie Williams, Billy Joel, The Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Sublime, The Allman Brothers Band, The Grateful Dead, Yes, Christina Perri, Demi Lovato, and countless others. The legendary metal act Lamb of God also partnered with Jammit to release their new album, Resolution on the multi-track Jammit platform. In mid-May, Jammit released the classic Pantera "Vulgar Display of Power" to coincide with the album's 20th anniversary.
