Ninja Tune announced their highly anticipated follow up to the Jamm app and it’s wicked!

Designed exclusively for iPad, Jamm Pro transforms Ninja Jamm into a comprehensive music-making tool, allowing users to upload their own samples and recordings. It also offers multitrack recording, MIDI Learn, extensive modular synth-like patching and modulation functions, as well as a range of other unique features really unlike any software or instrument currently on the market.

Developed as an instrument for playing live with sound, it also features multi-touch control and a Jamm clip matrix that allows users to instantly switch from one sample to the next, with everything remaining in time.

To mark the release, music-makers are invited to submit their best one-take video creating a track on Jamm Pro. The winner will be awarded £1000.

Jamm Pro is the anticipated evolution of Ninja Jamm, the original touch controlled beat app. Easy to use but deep, Jamm Pro includes Ninja Jamm users most requested feature: the ability to load your own samples. As well as immense performance power, it’s packed with pro features and new ideas e.g. its modular synth-like patching capabilities.

Jamm is a unique instrument. Loaded with free content and killer presets, you’ll be amazing yourself with the music you create from the moment you press Play.

THE STORY

For Ninja Tune co-founders Coldcut, known for their innovations in DJing, Remixing, Production and Live Performance, Jamm Pro has been 25 years in the making. Coldcut have been honing it in their live show and recently creating music with it.

Designed by Coldcut’s Matt Black with the aim of creating their ultimate electronic music instrument. As users experiment and develop ideas, they can save them as their own patches, which can be used to quickly build up stages of a song, structure a live performance, or used as a sketchpad.

The app features exceptional and extensive modulation and patching capabilities, the likes of which have never been seen in a sample app before. Equipped with four main channels, each with nine sequencers — six modulation sequencers, a slice sequencer, a pitch/reverse/drill sequencer and a gate sequencer — and up to 64 patches per set, Jamm Pro allows for a possible 2,304 sequencers per Sound Set in the app.

As well as production, Jamm Pro has been designed as an instrument for playing live sound, drawing on hiphop DJing and timing. With expressive touch control, the app facilitates direct engagement of hand-eye-ear coordination through ‘tip control’. This innovative feature tracks small finger movements that can be used to sensitively control various effects.

And yes Ableton Link is included!
