DESCRIPTION

The MASCHINE JAM Sequencer is a powerful step-sequencer module for REAKTOR Blocks that can be played and programmed using the MASCHINE JAM controller. All functions and settings can also be controlled directly in the software, allowing you to use the sequencer without the hardware controller.

The MASCHINE JAM Sequencer's 8 channels can produce sequences with up to 64 steps. Special sequence attributes and a Euclidean pattern generator make it easy to come up with interesting patterns, including complex polyrhythms. Additionally, a number of performance features like the Velocity sliders and the Repeat function turn the sequencer into a playable instrument.

The MASCHINE JAM Sequencer includes Panel Ports and is Rack-Ready! You can use it as User Block in Racks (REAKTOR 6.4 and later).

Learn all about installing and using the MASCHINE JAM Sequencer in the included MASCHINE JAM Sequencer Manual.

The MASCHINE JAM Sequencer works perfectly with the Niji Drums. Download them here:

Been waiting for this since i saw nevens youtube video years ago. After installing i get to the step where you go to audio and midi settings in reaktor and i cant find that in my file drop down of reaktor 6.4. Also, when i drag the sequencer on to my instance of preloaded monark it does nothing and wont open. Please help.

NOT WORKING WITHIN DAW…….Please help. Same issue for me like for fellow jam users.... @Mark Placzkowski @Raymond Smith @Yannick Sandoz Yes it works in standalone. I’ve followed the daw steps up to the brick wall where they no longer apply to the circumstances of the reaktor software.
 I have followed the steps in the manual until they no longer are correct. Perhaps now there has been an update to reaktor blocks since the manual was made. Many of the blocks have front end connection points. There are no visual front end connections to the Niji drum blocks. The steps cannot be followed. I’m hoping we have some assistance on this matter. Thank you so much for this leap with Jam. Been excited for this drop since Nadine shown off the amazing polyrhythms it can do.

Help please, new to this. I cannot use get visual feedback or control function on Jam hardware when I add it as a VST in Ableton 10. I load up an ens and hear sound, and see the virtual seq working. Everything works fine with the controller as stand alone in Reaktor, just issues in DAW. I feel like routing setting are off. I get lost on the Manual pdf specifics 3.4 steps 8-9...

Hi, For Ableton, you need to create 2 MIDI tracks. In the first one, you have Reaktor as VST (not AU) with Jam Sequencer inside. In the second you route "MIDI FROM" from the first track and "MIDI TO" to the Jam (hardware). Monitor must be on "IN". Personally, I didn't manage to do it correctly in Maschine Software but works fine in Ableton (SOUND => OUTPUT => MIDI not works). Best Christophe

Hi Raymond and Yannick, there is a generic outline of the required steps to use it in a DAW in the Jam Sequencer Manual. We are also planning a video showing this in more detail, based on the feedback we have received here and elsewhere. Stay tuned!

@Yannick Live 10. Jam hardware no led feedback. Standalone mode works fine, midi inputs are ok but no visual feedback on the maschine in Live10 (Vst). I still have this problem.

It is fun to play with. I am sequencing the drums with it. But I need to set the Midi-Notes every time I open the rack, because the faders are set to "Include in Snapshot" = false. After setting them to true, all works fine.

@Nadine do we have to build everything fom scratch or are there some racks to Jam with like in your video? i second what the others say (third?) about the Jam, stuff like this baked into Maschine would be wild!

Hammy Havoc is right, we, owners of Maschine Jam, need more of those. Don't leave this resource "untapped".

Please keep fleshing out the Jam! It's a great piece of hardware with so much potential left untapped.

OMG yes. Thank you! I asked my friend who is a developer to ask about this a couple months ago, and found the artist that demo'd it on Youtube and messaged her about it too recently. We appreciate it!
