For Ninja Tune co-founders Coldcut, known for their innovations in DJing, Remixing, Production and Live Performance, Jamm Pro has been 25 years in the making. Coldcut have been honing it in their live show and recently creating music with it.
Designed by Coldcut’s Matt Black with the aim of creating their ultimate electronic music instrument. As users experiment and develop ideas, they can save them as their own patches, which can be used to quickly build up stages of a song, structure a live performance, or used as a sketchpad.
The app features exceptional and extensive modulation and patching capabilities, the likes of which have never been seen in a sample app before. Equipped with four main channels, each with nine sequencers — six modulation sequencers, a slice sequencer, a pitch/reverse/drill sequencer and a gate sequencer — and up to 64 patches per set, Jamm Pro allows for a possible 2,304 sequencers per Sound Set in the app.
As well as production, Jamm Pro has been designed as an instrument for playing live sound, drawing on hiphop DJing and timing. With expressive touch control, the app facilitates direct engagement of hand-eye-ear coordination through ‘tip control’. This innovative feature tracks small finger movements that can be used to sensitively control various effects.
And yes Ableton Link is included!
This version includes optimizations for improved audio performance, fixed bugs, and we’ve added two new features to the sub bass synth. More new features and improvements coming in the next update!
• Optimizations for improved audio performance.
• Add edit bar length of a clip in the clip panel.
• Add dynamic mode for subbass synth.
• Sidechain key inputs now trigger subbass synth.
• Add some automatic fixes for failed audio file loads when loading a set.
• Fix bug with incorrect stem length value when exporting to Ableton Live set.
• Fix audio session buffer size was not always recalled correctly at app launch under certain conditions.
• Various bug fixes.

Me like! Needs a better way out...
This is a fun remix app with some serious power. However, it needs InterApp audio or AudioBus to get live performances into a DAW without having to record and load manually. The addition of this ability would also allow for playing live synths, etc. into a mix. Seriously, add this feature please! I couldn’t be terribly hard. If it was an AUv3, that would even be better as it would be future proofed. What do you say guys/gals, is this something that is possible?
Also, the app needs more sound packs, especially slower, tip hop/downtempo stuff, well, and some more good glitch.
No Bluetooth sound out
I (will) really like this app. My only problem is that I can’t use my Airpods Pro with this app. I think I’d lock myself in my room with the app if I could hear it through my headphones!
So far that’s my only beef.
Developer Response ,
Hi Steamboat_dp, although we may consider adding support in the future, currently we do not support Bluetooth audio due to inherent issues with audio latency which are problematic for music production apps with the ability to capture live audio input for recording and sampling as Jamm Pro does.
Solid Remix & Creation Tool
Whether you want to just play with sound or need a powerful composition tool, JammPro is deep with features and capabilities to satisfy. Every last aspect of the software is adjustable making for varied experiences from session to session. Link with other apps and record into JammPro or use the iPad mic as input. There is no limit when you start digging into the software deeper. Not only will you be able to compose, but also perform.
