      For those of you looking for additional information on the JamHub studios in the August 2010 KEYBOARD magazine there is a nice article about using a JamHub. They also gave us a KEYBUY award. Thanks KEYBOARD. Sorry, there isn't a link to the article yet. I think they publish them online the month after the magazine is off the shelf. There is a good review at Premier guitar as well.

        You see Jon, things like this appeal to the OCD in musicians like me. I'm the gear guru in our band, and quite often get ribbed for color coding cables and individualized gear (such as mics, direct boxes, mic stands, etc). Folks like me have multiple rolls of colored vinyl tape, velcro cable straps and magnetic channel labels for the live mixer. We keep separate compartments in the cable box for XLR, 1/4" and speaker cables. We chastize our fellow band members who figure-8 their cables when everybody knows the prescribed method is to roll them!



        For guys like me, the JamHub is a miracle sent from Heaven itself, and proves Intelligent Design is not necessarily the exclusive domain of the Gods! If yoiu have a set of e-drums, any room can become the practice room, because it can become the room it WAS within a few minutes after rehearsal is over.



        Great review. I'm buying.

          Thanks man, we appreciate the kind words. Be sure to post your results here on the forum. I'm sure many others are eager to hear about how it goes for you.

            KEYBOARD has posted the review (see link below). It's written well; it starts off with:



            Steve Skillings could keep you and your whole band out of jail. Funny.

              Cool, sounds like a low hassle means of having quiet rehearsals/performances with the added benefit of a personalized mix!



              So- aren't acoustic/electric/bass guitar inputs a different impedance than keyboard inputs? I'm guessing your system is optimally designed for line level (which is what a keyboard and post fx pedal guitar gives you), esp. considering that on the instrument input there's no fx available.



              And do keyboardists, do they need a direct box for optimal sound?



              Kudos on your marketing and design sensibilities! The product looks invitingly simple and user friendly, and the ways you're promoting it is appealing as well.

                Randyman,



                Thanks for all the kind words. Andy the impedance is definitely tuned for line level devices, not a guitar/bass straight in. BUT, I will tell you that we have many a bass player who loves the sound of their bass straight into the JamHub preamps. Musicians are a funny lot.



                For a keyboardists I'd suggest either coming straight out of the headphone jack, (you will be listening with headphones and often these outputs are optimized for headphone listening) or use the line level outs and a summing cable/splitter so the JamHub gets a TRS (stereo) signal.



                We've heard some gear that sounds better to our ears with the line out and other gear that sounds better via the headphone out. Again, that's a subjective call for sure.



                Thanks for the interest and I hope you'll give a JamHub a try someday soon. I think you'll find that it's an amazing tool to have in your musical toolbox. I played for 5 hours with my band on Sunday night without disturbing anyone in the house. It was loud and full and detailed and "studio like" in my headphones AND I walked away from it without ringing ears. Just try that with conventional rehearsal space.



                Have a great day,

                Steve

                    Hi gang,



                    Here's a cool application for jamming with a JamHub. These rock camps look like a lot of fun and man I wish I had access to this when I was a kid. I played sports with lots of kids, but I only jammed with a single band when I was a kid. Now, you can jam a ton with a lot of bands. Very cool.

                    Keep playing,

                    Steve



                    PS If you own a music school, this is a very profitable endeavor. Email us at "info at JamHub dot com" and we'll share with you how it's done. The best part is that the teachers love it, the kids love it and the PARENTS really love it.

                        Hey guys,



                        Here's another thread about JamHubs. A lot of information flying around on this thread and more and more HC members understand the product and can answer questions correctly. Enjoy: http://acapella.harmony-central.com/...sing-My-JamHub

                          I really think this is the invention of the year in music.

                          With onstage volume competitions being my main gripe with band playing - how about using the jamhub for your monitors(foldbacks) on stage?!

                          Perhaps there is a market for a jamhub with double faders for each unit so the voice and instrument of each player can also be adjusted individually by all the others..



                          Am I correct that the fifth player in the bedroom sits on R, and do electricl guitars need any preamping?

                            Hi Mirando,



                            Thanks for the "invention of the year" comment. We really appreciate it. We have won a bunch of awards in our first year, but hearing it from our fellow musicians is way more satisfying.



                            You can use a JamHub for in-ear systems on stage. It works really well. You can also use it with powered monitors but that takes some clever cabling and grounding.



                            If you want more control over individual mixes, you can spread a player over two sections. In my band, most nights I use section one for my guitar and vocals and sometimes, when we are working on vocals sometimes I use section 1 and 2 for me.



                            You can use the R section just like any other section. It has the same number of inputs, outputs and controls. It is essentially section "5" on the BedRoom model and section "7" on the GreenRoom and TourBus models. We just named it "R" because it's on the rear of the unit and we want to encourage recording of the jams.



                            I hope that helps!

                              I've gotten a few PM's about using the JamHub with a DAW to record multi-track and live. Yes, it can be done quite easily. Simply split the signal before the DAW or after (if you have enough sends) and use the JamHub as your listening mixer (with a mix for each musician) and the audio IO for all the capturing of the tracks. We have plenty of customers using it that way and they all say the results are fantastic. It's really simple no matter if you need to capture 4 tracks or 8 tracks.



                              I hope that helps,

                                Hey gang, we've seen some cool schools using JamHubs to add rock music programs to their offerings. One of them said they are starting a "silent music revolution" with JamHubs at the core. Just visited a High School in Gahanna, OH, who is adding two full JamHub setups to their school thanks to the band Peligro 614 who won the School Jam USA battle of the high school bands contest. Great kids, great band, great time. If you are involved with a school and want your music program to add the most popular music and instruments to their program, check out http://www.JamHub.com/teach/index.html for stories and tools to make it easy.
