Hi, Jim: we have a Guitar-Hero like mode and free play mode that would get you playing with minutes.
Like any serious instrument, it will significant hours of study to perform at any depth.
p.s. the Pro model, the 4th generation, was launched in early 2018.
Good to know that it works with GarageBand.
In the Jamboxs app, what is your MIDI OUT setting in Setup > Audio / MIDI. Normally it doesn’t need to be set, but perhaps Amplitube needs it. See screen shot attached.
You must be logged in to access attached files.
Also, from what I can tell AmpliTube is best used as a plug-in to a DAW like Logic Pro, Ableton, Studio One, FL Studio, etc. So the Jamboxx would be recognized by the DAW.
Hi Mark: the Jamboxx Pro is a MIDI instrument and send digital MIDI data via the USB cable.
An XLR connection is typically for an audio connection, say a microphone, guitar or an electronic piano, which typically sends an analog audio wave.
So unless you had a device to translate the digital MIDI data to an analog audio signal an XLR connection would not work. Note, I’m assuming you’re referring to XLR and not a round MIDI 5 pin connector.
Here’s an article about MIDI to Analog conversion. https://www.midi.org/articles-old/the-top-5-midi-to-cv-converters-in-2018
Note for most of these devices you’d also need an adapter to go from USB-A to 5 pin MIDI, which are pretty common. And on the output side a RCA to XLR adapter, again pretty common.
Hope that helps!
Hmm. The Jamboxx should show up as a standard MIDI instrument for any DAW. When you launch the Jamboxx app, what firmware version is displayed in SETUP > ABOUT.
Also, if you launch GarageBand on your Mac, is the Jamboxx recognized there?
Hi, Phil: the Jamboxx Pro is designed to be a personal instrument. You can certainly clean the outside with a Clorox wipe or similar.
If you have concerns about cross contamination, please send the Jamboxx back to us. We’ll replace the mouthpiece and sterilize the internal components with our UV cleaner.
