D'Addario Partners with Jammit
Farmingdale, NY - November 17, 2011 - D’Addario & Company is proud to announce its new partnership with Jammit, the first jamming and learning music software/application solution that isolates individual audio tracks from original multi-track master recordings – spanning the history of popular music from the mid 1960s to present!
Revolutionizing the way musicians can learn licks, solos and entire songs, players can download actual master recordings from bands including Deep Purple, 38 Special, Motley Crue, Shinedown, AFI, Allman Brothers, Anthrax, Collective Soul, Doobie Brothers, Godsmack, Grateful Dead, Papa Roach, Peter Frampton, Ramones, Winger, Black Tide, Jane’s Addiction, Rise Against, Richie Kotzen, and Sara Bareilles.
The patented Jammit technology allows musicians to isolate, loop and vari-speed an individual instrument within a dense mix and hear the exact intricacies of the original recording, allowing players to accurately learn the part and even play along with their favorite bands. Each instrument part is meticulously translated for notation or tab and the exclusive software scrolls notation in synch with the track as it plays. Users have a choice of guitar, bass, drums, keyboards or vocal versions.
To kick off this new partnership, guitarists that purchase any set of D’Addario guitar or bass strings can simply use the code on the packaging to redeem a free song on Jammit. Additionally, D’Addario, Jammit and Suicide Silence have partnered for the limited time “Dismember the Band” promotion. Purchase a set of D’Addario guitar or bass strings and any Suicide Silence song and get their new single “Slaves to Substance” for free. Promos valid from Nov 1, 2011 to Feb 1, 2011.
