Today is the day that Lamb of God’s Resolution is in stores. I will be picking up a copy later on today, when I go into the city. Yes, I will be in the city tonight, but for what? Nothing special.
Resolution is available in a number of formats, including through Jammit, Inc., a music software company founded by renowned producer and engineer Scott Humphrey.
According to a press release, each song from the band’s latest release will be available on Jammit, “an emerging music platform that will give musicians and fans a whole new way to experience Lamb of God. The group’s decision to release its new CD simultaneously for Jammit software is a testament to its innovative presentation and rich feature set.”
It seems Jammit helps musicians learn how to play their favorite songs. “Jammit delivers a stunning user experience allowing you to virtually practice and perform in the recording studio with your favorite artists. This revolutionary product utilizes the actual multi-track masters from the original recording sessions. Jammit tracks are available for guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and vocals, allowing you to isolate a specified instrument or vocal track from the rest of the band.”
The release says the “software provides note-for-note transcriptions (in standard notation or tablature), instant navigation to any part of the song, adjustable snap-to-grid looping and a slow playback mode (that doesn’t affect the pitch). Once you have learned the song, you can replace the original instrument recording with your own performance. Jammit is currently available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch with Mac and Windows versions coming in early2012.”
