Playing With JamTracks

Last Updated: Oct 19, 2015 08:22PM CDT
JamTracks let individual musicians play their favorite pieces of music any time with a full band. Here are instructions on how to use all of the core JamTracks features:

What Are JamTracks?
This topic explains what JamTracks are, and why they are so much different and better than traditional backing tracks.

Searching for JamTracks by Artist or Song Name
This topic explains how to search for JamTracks when you are looking for something specific, like a favorite artist or a specific song.

Searching for JamTracks by Instrument or Genre
This topic explains how to see a list of JamTracks that have parts for a specific instrument, like an acoustic guitar, mandolin, or trumpet; or to see a list of JamTracks by genre, like blues, country, or reggae.

Previewing JamTracks Before Purchase
This topic explains how to listen to the master mix and the isolated tracks for each part to make sure you like a JamTrack before buying it. 

Getting Your First JamTrack Free
This topic explains how you can get your first JamTrack free to make sure you like the unique JamTracks experience before making any purchases at all.

Purchasing JamTracks

Playing Your JamTracks in Our Free Windows or Mac App

Playing Your JamTracks in a Browser
This topic explains how you can easily play with your JamTracks.

Modifying The Mix On Your JamTracks
This topic explains how to change your JamTrack mix. For example, you can solo just one part to hear that fully isolated part and all of its nuances clearly to learn it. You can mute just one part so that you can play that part live while accompanied by the rest of the band. You can drop out multiple parts to create acoustic mixes. Or even pan parts to the left or right, or set their levels as you like.

Using Custom Mixes to Slow Tempo & Change Pitch​
This topic explains how to slow down (or speed up) playback of a JamTrack by a specified percentage, while maintaining the pitch so the music still sounds “right”. When you are first learning a piece of music, you often need to slow it down and gradually build up speed. This topic explains how to change the pitch of a JamTrack up or down by specified numbers of semitones/half steps. If you’re a singer and you need to bring the song down into your vocal range, or if you want to change the key of the piece into something easier to play, the JamKazam app lets you make these changes easily. 

Using VST/AU Plugins for Audio Effects
This topic explains how to use VST and AU plug-ins with the JamKazam app and JamTracks. For example, guitarists can use popular plug-ins like AmpliTube to mimic the sounds of different amps and so on, generating all kinds of clean, distorted, heavy, and other effects. And vocalists can tune reverb, echo, and other settings to achieve a desired studio-quality sound.

Making, Saving, And Sharing Audio Recordings With JamTracks
This topic explains how to record your live instrumental and/or vocal performances mixed with the unmuted tracks of the JamTrack. You can keep these private, or make them public. Your recordings are saved to the JamKazam cloud, and you can easily share a URL to these recordings with family, friends, and fans via Facebook, email, etc.

Making, Saving, And Sharing Video Recordings With JamTracks
This topic explains how to make video recordings that combine the audio recordings as described above with video captured from your webcam. The app can save these videos to your computer, and/or automatically upload them to your YouTube channel for easy sharing with others.

Playing JamTracks With Others in Live, Online Sessions
This topic explains how to use JamKazam's free Internet service that lets musicians play live and in sync with each other from different locations. You can use your JamTracks in sessions and let other musicians join you to play parts of the JamTrack live. For example, imagine you’re playing the lead guitar part, and a bass player joins your session. Simply muted the recorded bass part, and the two of you can play live parts accompanied by the rest of the recorded tracks.
