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 and mix entire songs with the Jamstik. It works with our companion apps or your favorite music apps and DAWs like Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, GarageBand, SampleTank, and hundreds more.



Customize Your Performance

With the Jamstik official app for iOS and the Chrome Browser, you can also fine-tune the performance of your Jamstik with string sensitivity settings, one-touch custom tunings, and more.



FAQ

Can you create with the Jamstik 7?

Definitely—After you've logged some hours learning on the Jamstik 7, you can take your skills over to music recording apps like GarageBand or Soundtrap 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?

No, 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.

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.
