Think of UJAM Beatmaker as a toolkit filled with a limitless arsenal of tools. For each groove there is a wide array of variations that help turn your song into a dynamic piece of music.
You can use one of the less complex variations (phrases) at the start of a song. After eight or sixteen bars you may want to add a fill to a busier phrase. As the song grows, you emphasize the dynamics by changing phrases and/or tweaking other controls (Sweep, Ambience, Mix, mod wheel intensity, etc.).
For easier understanding, we have borrowed a lot of terminology from the world of acoustic drumming. Drums played by a skilled musician are an ever-evolving performance that helps the rest of the band to build a song and make it sound interesting – and that’s true for any electronic music genre.
