MIDI: Play More Than Guitar

The Jamstiks are class-compliant MIDI controllers, so you can play synths, drums, trumpets, or any instrument you can think of to create a track from start to finish. 


Limitless Possibilities to create

The Jamstiks work with our companion software or your favorite music apps, plugins, and DAWs like Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, GarageBand, Serum, ANA 2, and hundreds more.


FAQ

Can you create with the portable Jamstik controllers?

Definitely—After you've logged some hours learning on the Jamstik Guitar Training products, you can take your skills over to music recording apps like GarageBand. Soundtrap or any other DAW to build your own tracks!

What Jamstiks work with my DAW?

All Jamstik versions are DAW compatible and will work with any software or apps that accept MIDI input, including Ableton, Logic, Pro Tools, GarageBand, SampleTank, and hundreds of others.

Does the Jamstik make sound on its own?

The portable Jamstik controllers do not have onboard sounds—just like a lot of MIDI keyboards, you'll have to connect it to a device (smartphone, tablet, laptop/desktop computer) running our apps or third-party software to create the sound.

The Jamstik Studio MIDI Guitar is a full-sized, traditional electric guitar with a 1/4" output for use with amps, pedals, and interfaces. You can even track audio and MIDI simultaneously. 

Can I use headphones to plug in?

Yes, you can use headphones—one of the main reasons to use the Jamstik is because you can have a private playing experience! That said, you cannot plug headphones directly into the Jamstik. Instead, just plug them into the device your Jamstik is connected to.

Note: You'll want to use a wired connection (aux cord) instead of Bluetooth headphones.
