Love the app. Sounds are good. Faders accurate for instrument volumes. Like that you can choose individual songs for purchase. Want more tunes. Maybe some blues, rhythm changes, nardis, giant steps, joy spring would all be welcome additions. As a bass teacher it's great for students to practice walking bass lines, play melodies, soloing, and for 6 stringers compin chords. I also like to just use the drums and play other matching form tunes. The miss jones drums works for a lot of aaba form tunes at a 'bright' tempo for example. It looks like biab and aebersold are not taking advantage of the iPhone app craze. I know about the other apps in this catagory. I have tried them all. Give this one a try! I have read people complaining about countoffs. Come on! I guess these people have never listened to an aebersold. Teachers, students recommended! For gig use...bring your laptop.
great novelty app but needs........
I have an ipod touch 2g with latest os and jam lite 2 works perfectly. although these basic features should be added: 1.) vocal , drum stick or no click count in option 2.) user defined loop point button for extended soloing 3.) end of song button 4.) set list with auto play or manual play option 5. )save/load all user settings button
6.) lead sheets or atleast chord chart view option during play back. These basic updates would make jam much more attractive to working musicians as well as students and teachers . i am a pro pianist , this app jam is a novelty that could easily be updated to be an essential portable music tool .
As a pianist I have really enjoyed this app, but the latest update annoyed me. They changed the whole look of the app (for the worse in my opinion), but most importantly, the track I had changed! I had a copy of Autumn Leaves as one app and a copy of Have You Met Miss Jones as another. When I updated, Autumn Leaves gave me a warning message, and Have You Met Miss Jones was now Watermelon Man! I like Watermelon Man too, but that's just not right. Furthermore, since they're switching to an in-app purchase model, they should have incorporated my Autumn Leaves somehow.
Luckily the quality of the music is the primary draw for me, and that remains high.
