Rayzoon Updates JamStix To 1.7

Rayzoon has announced an update to Jamstix. Jamstix VSTi virtual drummer synchs to your sequencer and plays with your MIDI track or audio-in signal using its innovative free jam mode where rhythms are created on-the-fly. It also offers jamming based on an extensive rhythm library as well as creating professional drum tracks complete with intro, fills and ending with its easy-to-use built-in arranger.

Incredibly realistic drumming thanks to new technologies such as limb assignment, transition times and interactive play rules. Advanced audio engine with 380MB of multi-velocity samples and controllable ambience but can also host any of your existing VSTi drum modules, such as BFD and DFHS.
