VJamm 2.6 Pro


By default the clip triggers are on the white notes C2-D4 in Cubase, C4-D6 in cakewalk The lowest clip trigger note is MIDI decimal 48 (= Hexadecimal 30)

In MIDI guitair mode, clip triggers start at E- decimal 52 and go up on the semitones so the clips can be played more easily on a MIDI guitair.

MIDI Patch Loading operates on all the notes from MIDI note 77 upwards (F above the VJamm note range) This loads the patches listed in the Patch Loader window. You need the VJamm MIDI input buffer ON for MIDI patch Loading.

Patch Loading also operates on MIDI program change messages.

MIDI Controllers and the Pitch Wheel can be assigned to VJamm Parameters in the MIDI window

Korg Kaoss Pad Clip Movement:

pitch wheel = x movement of clip
Control 1 = top half of y movement of clip
Control 2 = bottom half of y movement of clip

Control 20 is used as a 'scratch finger' control - map a MIDI controller to this to allow you to scratch a clip then 'take your finger off' and 'let the record play'.

In 16 MIDI channels mode, all controllers & pitch control apply to individual midi clips Q=channel 1 A=2 K=16 etc. Otherwise midi controls affect the current (last triggered) clip. Clip triggers remain on the selected VJamm MIDI note triggers, but VJamm listens for triggers on all 16 MIDI channels.

MIDI Window

MIDI Channel - the channel that VJamm 2 listens on when not in 16 channels mode.

Use Note Off - whether MIDI note off is is used to stop clips playing after they have been triggered

Velocity -> Volume - Maps MIDI velocity to clip volume
Velocity -> Opacity - Maps MIDI velocity to clip opacity - use both together for AV velocity

In Pitch Notes mode, the 16 clips are pitched out onto the 16 MIDI channels with the different notes being played on each channel according to what MIDI note is requested. Just like a hardware MIDI audio sampler.

MIDI Guitair Mode moves the VJamm note range onto rising semitones starting at E- MIDI decimal 52

Current Clip follows MIDI triggers - whether the VJamm current clip changes as clips are triggered from MIDI - the current clip is the one that you modify with the opacity and luma sliders on the main VJamm interface, as well as being the clip that is modified by MIDI data when you are not in 16 MIDI channels mode.

Load MIDI config from Patches - This option lets you choose whether you load up the MIDI configuration settings that have been saved in your VJPs when you do a patch load, or whether you keep the settings already in VJamm. VJamm always saves all your settings when you shut the program down so that they are there when you start it up again.

Enable VJamm MIDI input buffer - The VJamm MIDI input buffer is required for MIDI patch loading, and makes sure that all MIDI notes are processed by VJamm. Switching the buffer off makes MIDI triggering faster, but can cause crashes, especially if you have the sliders eg. in the AVI Info window flying around responding to MIDI data coming in.

Kaoss Pad Clip Positioning - KP1 X / Y clip positioning / flying

Disable Black Notes - stop VJamm from responding to the VJamm command messages that are normally signified by black note triggers

Disable Pitch and Mod Wheels - stop VJamm responding to data coming in from the pitch and mod wheels
