"I've tried multiple guitar-to-MIDI converters and found all of them unusable because of the latency. Jammy doesn't have the latency issue — thanks to its design, it knows the note you want to play before you even pick it.
It's really awesome to be able to use a 'guitar mind' to create things that aren't guitar sounds. For someone who is a guitarist and interested in digital music production, it's the best thing out there.
Shipping of pre-orders made on Kickstarter starts in September 2021, pre-orders from the website are planned to be shipped in October. You can find the most recent manufacturing updates here.
Jammy E will have around 8-10ms of latency from the moment you pick a string to Jammy outputting the MIDI note. Of course, depending on the connection you’ll use (USB or Bluetooth), your computer specs, audio interface, and DAW, the overall latency may vary.
Jammy E is a MIDI controller, that’s why it won’t generate audio and will only send MIDI over USB and Bluetooth. We wanted to make it compact, and that’s why there was just not enough space to place a 5-pin MIDI output. However, you can connect it to your hardware synth using a powered USB MIDI host.
Sure, you can bend on Jammy E. Moreover, you can adjust the bend range in the companion app or VST plugin.
Yes, you can definitely use those techniques on Jammy E. Moreover, we’re working on a special mode that will make left-hand tapping more precise.
We wish we had a bass version of Jammy E too, but for now, we’re focused on the guitar. By the way, you can play bass sounds on Jammy E via MIDI as well.
You can use Jammy E both with Android and iOS devices with virtual instrument apps or DAWs like FL studio mobile, BandLab, etc. for Android; and GarageBand, Cubasis, etc. for iOS.
Jammy E works with any DAW! You can choose one depending on your operating system and budget. There are some free options (GarageBand, Pro Tools First, Reaper, Bandlab) and some popular paid options (Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, FL Studio, Cubase, and others).
Since the string tension on Jammy E fretboard part is adjustable, you can set the action to your liking. By default, we decided to make it pretty low. Due to our research, that is the way most guitarists prefer it to be.
