The holiday shopping season is here, and we're here to make your lives a little easier with a curated guide to winning your gift giving for the guitarist-producer in your life (or let's be honest, for yourself). We'll break it into a few categories, along with our "Top Buys" for the season.
Limited floor space? Display your guitar with a hanging wall mount! Make sure to choose a low-profile mount, like this model from String Swing to accommodate the small body size of the Studio MIDI Guitar.
Can't find that capo anywhere? Happens to the best of us. Capos work great on the Studio MIDI Guitar and can be a convenient tool for songwriting!
DAW - Logic Pro: While other DAWs have touted new MPE support, we can confirm that Logic Pro does it right. The software offers one of the most seamless playing experiences with the Studio MIDI Guitar, plus, it's full of some incredible, MPE-capable stock plugins including EFM1, ES2, EXS24, Retro Synth, Sculpture, Alchemy, and Vintage Clav. *Jamstik Team - Top Buy
Plugin - Xfer's Serum: This is a
powerhouse soft synth with deep functionality and customizability. It was one of the first plugins we ever tried the Jamstik's MPE capabilities with, and we've never stopped using it. It's legendary for a reason. *Jamstik Team - Top Buy
Tip: Make sure to enable MPE within Serum to get the most out of the two products together. In Serum, click ‘Menu’ in the upper right of the plugin. Then, at the bottom of the list, make sure MPE is enabled.
iOS App - GeoShred: Exploring iOS music creation? Look no further than GeoShred—a highly expressive & creative software instrument housed in a sleek iOS app. With its high-quality sound selection and versatile external MIDI support, it’s a perfect companion app for your Jamstik!
Enter to win the ultimate MPE Gear Bundle: Jamstik Studio MIDI Guitar from Zivix — featuring the latest in MIDI guitar technology, and EQUATOR2 — ROLI’s revolutionary MPE synthesizer, taken to the next level.
