Rayzoon Technologies Intros Jamstix 2 Virtual Drummer VSTi

Jamstix

Rayzoon has announced that Jamstix 2, “The World’s Most Advanced Virtual Drummer VSTi” according to the company, will be released on 8/20/2007.

Features:

  • Real-time groove composition using dedicated style and drummer modeling (not static patterns!)
  • In-depth drummer limb simulation, including triangulation of hand movements, ensures that the grooves are always humanly playable (no ten-armed drummer here)
  • Advanced feel modeling includes sound-specific pocket delays, power and timing variations and can play ahead, on or behind the beat
  • Real-time fill generator produces unique fills (no static patterns used!) that match the style and drummer in use
  • Streamlined interface with visual drum kit for editing as well as just watching the
    drums play
  • Part-based arranger with transition and repetition fills, liveloop technology as well as drag-&-drop MIDI export
  • Limb-centric bar editor allows fine-tuning of events without need for MIDI export/editing in host
  • Extensive MIDI controller mapping allows in-depth remote-control of the style, drummer and mixer
  • Built-in mixer with compressor and 3-band EQ
  • Comes with 50 styles and 10 drummers, expandable via future Paks


High Quality Sounds:

  • Built-in high-quality drum sample player with multiple velocity layers and controllable ambience
  • Alternate samples remove machine-gun effect by varying sounds at the same velocity
  • Sophisticated layering creates realistic sound accumulations based on drum types
  • Route sounds to 4-17 stereo outputs (adjustable)
  • Extensive sound library that can be expanded via expansion Paks

Integrates With Other Sound Modules:

  • Integrated VSTi sub-hosting allows usage of any VSTi drum synthesizer, such as BFD,DFHS,EZDrummer and Addicitive Drums. Combine the sounds of your favorite drum plugin with the jam power and realism of Jamstix!
  • Allows creating kits that use a mix of external sounds and Jamstix 2 sounds! For example, you can built a kit that uses EZDrummer drums and Jamstix 2 percussion sounds and cymbals.
  • Flexible key and velocity mapping

Interactive Jamming

Jamstix can interact with your MIDI or audio input by adjusting velocity and using play rules, such as hihat/ride switching and snare head/sidestick switching as well as rhythm reduction giving you the feel of playing with a human drummer!

Supports Your Existing MIDI grooves

Jamstix can import your existing MIDI drum grooves as well as Jamstix 1 rhythms and use them as styles for playing by the drummer models. This means a static 1-bar MID file grooove comes to live by being played with the feel, accents and fills of the Jamstix 2 virtual drummers.
