Jamster Sequencer Name Change.

I have received notification from “Jesta Digital” that they own the trademark name “Jamster”.  Rather than create a fuss it is my intention to change the name of Jamster to ‘Jam Sequencer’ (and the Lite version to ‘Jam Sequencer Lite’)  ASAP.

  1. I found Jam and Songster on the Zune marketplace, then found your blog and discovered that they are both your apps. I was hoping to find a comparison of the two. Can you please describe why one might be preferabl over the other, or perhaps post a comparison chart of some kind? I am very interested in these apps. 🙂

    • Hi Matt,

      Both these apps are very similar in functionality the main difference being in the sounds provided – Jam is based around musical samples whereas Songster has both Musical and Drum sounds. The thinking is that Songster is the more rounded songwriting tool whereas Jam is less formal (and largely limited to non percussive compositions). Songster is also the principal sequencing platform that I develop for and as such invariably receives updates and new ideas before Jam. FYI Both are waiting on features available in Silverlight 5*. FYI it may be that at some point in the future they merge into an ‘all singing’, ‘all dancing’ sequencing program alongside ‘Metro Drummer’, ‘Ambient Soundscape’ and ‘Orchestrator’ (which all share the same underlying code base).

      Thanks for your interest.

      * Most notably the inclusion of low latency sound effects.
