What does it do?
For beginners and solo musicians, JamStudio offers something slightly different to most web-based tools. Based on just a few simple choices, the “online music factory” can create backing tracks and demos. Start by entering the chords of your track, then choose from a selection of guitar, synth, bass, piano and organ samples in order to construct a full arrangement.
How well does it work?
JamStudio isn’t perfect - it certainly falls a long way short of allowing you the freedom to create full songs from scratch - but it gives you an easy way of trying out chord progressions and experimenting with alternative arrangements. We can’t think of many quicker ways of putting together a backing track for a practice session.
Subscription is pricey but allows you to download MP3s of your creations. We’d give it a miss and just use the site to create quick and easy backing tracks.
