FRESH JAM FROM POSITIVE GRID
Last October the release of the JamUp Pro app from Positive Grid seriously impressed us. In a crowded market of music apps all fighting for your attention, JamUp Pro stood out as a great-sounding guitar amp sampler with plenty to offer, before you need bother with any in-app extra purchases. So we’re interested in the latest update just released, which includes three new Expansion Packs you can buy: Vintage Effects, Acoustic Pro, and Gurus Amps. You get built-in BIAS integration with free factory amp, a redesigned graphic interface with a comprehensive preset manager, plus buying those extra goodies has been made easier with a new JamUp Store. Worth noting is the acoustic imaging technology – the Acoustic Expansion Pack that promises to restore a studio-miked sound to an undersaddle or sound-hole pickup, and has an Acoustic Simulator that turns any electric guitar into realistic acoustic tone. The update is for both JamUp XT (the free version) and JamUp Pro XT (around AUS $20) and they are available for immediate download at the iTunes App Store. The new expansion packs are $12.99 each. Both apps offer the same sound engine and work with most iOS guitar audio interfaces. Check out www.positivegrid.com for more info plus links to videos that should impress you, too.
