As with every UJAM product, MELLOW benefits from the frustration-free design philosophy, meaning that anyone can make music faster, better and easier with this product, regardless of their level of experience in music production. Simply follow the simple controls on the user interface to use one of over 60 styles and 1380 phrases for your tracks.
Features at a glance
MELLOW's smooth, soulful and acoustic realism is unique. Even seasoned bass players themselves will appreciate the ability to get great sounding ideas down fast – with practically zero learning curve.
Virtual Bassist MELLOW has two distinct modes – Firstly, Player Mode, that gives you easy access to UJAMs traditional fail-free GUI and control set, just set the musical key and decide on the chords of the song and MELLOW does the hard work, even intelligently choosing the most appropriate articulations to augment your basslines.
For those that want more control and are comfortable playing the keyboard, our brand-new Instrument mode will let you access the whole of MELLOW's meticulously sampled fretboard with your MIDI controller, complete with dead notes, full stops and satisfying slides.
Sound shaping options
Add that last bit of sparkle with MELLOW, a simple but powerful set of tone shaping controls with separate parameters for many useful sonic and performance-enhancing features. Experiment with amp selection, instant character changes on dial-up, note vibrato level, room reverb level, octave effects, not to mention dynamics and EQ.
I have multiple UJAM instruments that I acquired on the cheap through their promotions after I purchase one of the guitars.
They promote on the 'sounds good, easy to use' principle ... both true.
But for some arcane reason they refuse to implement MIDI out in their instruments, thereby crippling the ability to get creative with the MIDI algorithms the instruments generate and use.
I've contacted them several times over the years to response of 'great idea, we're looking into it.'
Still hasn't happened.
So, I'm not buying or even auditioning any of their new products until they get their act together and implement this essential feature.
Consider this a one star review for the company.Read Review
