    Default 2019 Jam Play Tool Kits

    https://account.jamplay.com/toolkit < Link to Tool Kits

    Has anyone checked out the Tool Kits being offered for annual memberships?
    Unfortunately the free offer does NOT apply to those with current memberships.
    However it will extend your membership for another year, and you'll get one or several Tool Kits depending on the Jam Play annual package you buy.

    Several of them looked pretty interesting but I was disappointed that despite buying a yearly membership that doesn't run out until
    July 2019, I didn't qualify for one. For me anyway, I'm confident that I won't be renewing my membership for a Tool Kit.
    For those of you who may have missed the Tool Kits being offered 2019 the link is at the top of this post. Good Luck

    Just to kind of update everyone on that. If you purchased a year membership that you received a previous bundle with, upon renewal you'll have the ability to select the same amount of tool kits that you received bundles. So, if you have a year, year plus or year pro membership that will be renewing, as long as you allow it to renew, the first login after that happens, you'll be able to select and receive 1, 3 or all 7 toolkits based on whatever year membership you have.

    We renew these toolkits every year in December, so as long as you continue to allow your account to renew, you'll continue to have your choice of the updated packs. If you want more of them, you can always upgrade your year to plus or pro from standard, or pro from plus.

    Hope that helps explain how that works a bit better.

    Thanks for the explanation Jason.

    Are any of the items in the 2019 toolkits duplicates of the bundles from previous sales? I have pro bundles from the 2016 & 2017 (aka 2018) Christmas sales.

    Thanks again.

    None of the content from the 2019 Toolkits has been used in any other promotion. So it's all new for 2019.

    I am paid up until May of 2021. I guess that was a bad move on my part

    I thought I understood it before, but now.....?

    What does the number of bundles received with previous renewals have to do with this year's renewal?

    The toolkits you get from this years renewals, you do get them when you renew now, even if the renewal actually starts in July or in 2021.
    Or in other words, if you get a Pro membership now, you get the Pro benefits now and they last until you use them up or your JP membership expires.

    You don't update the bundles from previous years, right?

    BONUS QUESTION. What are the stems that you get with the toolkits? It's a good idea. What do I need to use them?

    The only DAW listed there is Traktor Pro 2.

    Me too, I'm paid up until April 2020. Guess we'll need to wait for our memberships to auto-renew in a couple years before we have free access to this new material. Regardless, there already is soooo much material to get through right now as it is.

    If you purchase a year you get access to however many toolkits / bundles that you purchased immediately, even if membership doesn't start for a bit, so no issues there.

    You also keep all of your old bundles, none of those are lost and changed.

    The STEMS are basically just the raw audio files in wav format, split out by track. So you get the guitar track, drum track, bass track, etc so that you can remix and remaster your own tracks and use them in your own musical creations. You don't need to use them to jam along with the tracks, they are just a fun extra for the music creators out there.

    Ah, thanks for the info. The STEMS that I found were a special version of mp4 which required special software. STEMS as wav files should work with any DAW. The disadvantage would be that wav files are bigger.

    There is another way to do this too. You could send Guitar Pro files of those, with guitar, drum, and bass as separate tracks. That also allows you to mix the tracks to your own preference. The audio is all synth. See for example the mySongBook feature of Guitar Pro.
    https://www.mysongbook.com

    Each day there is a free download (it only lasts one day) and/or you can buy downloads of many songs. Those come with lots of tracks and you can listen to or look at the scores and TABS for each separately or mix them however you want. Very useful for those who want to learn songs.

    Guitar Pro is an amazing piece of software. For anyone interested, you can get a discount by clicking on the "Guitar Pro" section of any of our lessons and looking at the coupon there.
