The ultimate one-man band app?
Jam Pad Review
by on June 5, 2010
The JamPad is a little gem of an app. It allows you to access a full octave at any point on the keyboard, and then play away on the virtual piano until your heart is content.
Not only that, users can add in tailored beats from a huge selection, play guitar chords and add in self-composed electric guitar solos. You’ll wish you had more hands.
A neat feature is the guitar option which enables you to strum chords, or pick the strings to a rhythm or melody of your choosing, while continuing to play the piano.
There’s a plethora of drum beats to add in, and the drop down electric guitar fretboard allows you to play solos. You can even increase the tempo of the strumming and beating, while easily switching between musical octaves.
However, there’s one problem. It’s practically impossible to muster any combination of two or more, making it hard to get anything worthwhile out of this application.
It’s an awful lot of fun to play with but the novelty can wear off, and there’s also no means of saving your creation without a built-in sound recorder for the device. Definitely worth a download though, and if you persevere you might end up getting something decent out of it.
