As we get quite a few requests regarding this question, we'd like to clarify a few things first:
- All of our plug-ins automatically adapt to the tempo set in the DAW. No matter which BPM (beats per minute) you select, your ujam plug-in is always in time. As the tempo is always right you can start jamming immediately.
- Most UJAM plugins come with a new DAW sync feature so that when you want to play live, the play head of the midi notes is synced to the grid/ click of the DAW now.
- You can find this feature under the ''micro timing menu'' and you can select the player sync to be on 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, or on the song position.
- You can quantize the STRIIIINGS player to the grid of your DAW. In the default position (“Note”), it will play exactly when you play or send MIDI notes. In “Beat” position, it will wait for the next beat (quarter note).
- The Virtual Guitarists (V1) are not automatically synced to the click / the metronome.
- We have this request on our list but didn't implement this functionality yet for all instruments for various reasons.
If you want to sync your Virtual Guitarist (or any other ujam plug-in) to your click track, here's the how-to:
- Use the respective MIDI note on a straight beat (the first beat is recommended) to trigger the desired groove/pattern of your Virtual Instrument (the patterns are not designed to start on an odd beat of a measure)
Here's a general hint: The best way to control your Virtual Instruments is using proper MIDI data!
The "quantize" and "force legato" feature of your DAW is also a great way to optimze your MIDI notes.
In this video, we show you how to sync Virtual Drummer ''HEAVY 2'' to FL Studio 20. Don't worry, this will work in the same way for all ujam plug-ins and all DAW's.
In this video, we show you how to sync ''SILK'' to Ableton Live.
