Testimonial"The Jamstik is exciting to have in my wheelhouse as a composer because I’m not a great guitarist, but still like to compose for the guitar from time to time. When I use the Jamstik+ in conjunction with Sibelius or another notation software, it allows me to better translate my tactile impulses to notation, as well as test out the playability of my music with greater ease and immediate feedback. Other than that, this little midi guitar is just fun to use as a creative brainstorming tool for my experimental electronic music. Every time I’ve brought the jamstik+ to an Ableton workshop, my colleagues have asked what it is and wanted one for themselves!"
