So Fun!!

By Anthony

Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE JAM:

I was hesitant when I first learned of the jam. I thought it was a push copy. Wrong. This thing is awesome. Its so fun to jam around on. You often come up with happy accidents and grooves you wouldn't normally do because its a different from how I make music. The step sequencing is super intuitive and eays. I'm not a good finger drummer so step sequencing is easier for me. Plus the way jam organizes and triggers patterns and scenes is great for sketching out a whole arrangement. The performance strips for tweaking everything way out are also cool for live stuff.

      Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE JAM:

      I wanted a sound I didn't think I could get from the rest of my setup and I hoped this would do the trick, but I've had tickets out with NI from day 1 that are still unanswered. . The problem is that it won't work with Ableton Live 10. I came up with a kluge that works some of the time; however, the source of the problem isn't clear. It could be the Ableton Live 10 for Jam Template that's being used. I hope this gets resolved. I'm pretty sure I'd like this product if it worked.


      Another nice piece of equipment from Native Instruments.

      great addition to the rig

      By Dwayne

      from Marietta, GA

      Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE JAM:

      Been using Maschine for 3 years and have the mk2. Added Jam to my setup and using the two in combo now is a hoot. Love how fast you can access patterns and scenes in Jam really quickly. I've come up with some wacky ideas live using the touch strips. Makes jamming on the spot fun. Id give it 5 stars, they should offer a discount to existing owners of maschine.

      Pretty Paperweight

      By Charles

      from Omaha, NE

      Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE JAM:

      I purchased this item with high hopes and was excited to get to use it. I installed the Maschine 2 software and all seemed fine. I went to load a project and I got a message to activate the Machine 2 software with Service Center. Service Center indicates that it is activated, but I can't launch the program, NI service hasn't answered my support ticket. I called Musicians Friend for advice on how to get customer support and they at least tried to help.
      I purchased a Traktor S4 and F1 at the same time, I will be sending them back!
