Ninja Tune Expands Jamm Pro Production App to iPhone and Android

Ninja Tune has made its acclaimed production app, Jamm Pro, available for iPhone, Android, and Apple silicon Macs.

The latest update, released on April 4th, extends the previously iPad-only app to a broader range of devices. Jamm Pro now offers enhanced features such as expanded multi-genre SoundSets, Bluetooth support, improved time-stretching capabilities, a track customization and social sharing tool, as well as an Action Sequencer tool for live layering and jamming.

Matt Black, co-founder of Ninja Tune and Coldcut, collaborated with developers and beta testers over two years to bring the smartphone version of the app to fruition. He described Jamm Pro as a tool for “beat junkies and music heads of all tribes,” catering to beginners and advanced producers alike. The app originated from their desire to create a unique sample-based instrument and explore innovative sound manipulation techniques.

In addition to the built-in samples, users can upload their own samples into the app. Jamm Pro features effects like reverb, delay, filter, and saturation, which can be controlled using an XY interface. This allows creators to manipulate up to four parameters simultaneously with just two fingers.

Dub music played a significant role in shaping the app’s dynamics, drawing inspiration from pioneers such as King Tubby, Sherwood, and On-U Sound. The audio routing element is designed to emulate the mixing desk experience, enabling users to dub tracks in and out while retaining echoes and reverbs in the mix. Each send button acts as a mini XY controller, providing precise control over dub parameters like feedback and delay time.

Ultimately, Jamm Pro aims to inspire a new generation of producers by combining studio-like capabilities with an intuitive video game-style interface for instant electronic music expression and production. By making the app accessible on smartphones, the aim is to democratize music creation.
