Review: Jam Origin's MIDI Guitar

There's not many products that make Toby Pitman swear out loud in sheer amazement when he first uses them, but Jam Origin's MIDI Guitar software is definitely one of them!  

The concept behind MIDI Guitar is so simple and brilliant that I thought it was a hoax at first. Just plug your guitar in your audio interface with a 1/4'

For the past 20 years Toby has worked as a professional guitarist, programmer and producer. Clients include Sir Paul McCartney, George Michael, Shirley Bassey, Yusuf Islam, Giles Martin as well as the London 2012 Olympic Ceremonies. He has also worked extensively in TV, Advertising and Film. As well as composing himself he has also ... Read More


I cant get this to work at all in Pro Tools ( I have paid up for the full version 1.0 )

I have downloaded the LoopBe 1 file they recomend ( as Pro tools does not run VST) and all its done is stopped me accessing my mbox pro interface .
Since installing LoopBe ( as instructed be the Jam Origin Midi Guitar website )

...., Whenever I now attempt to open pro tools 10.3.8 ...................,

(Note; I usually prefer to use P.T 11.0.3, AAX 64bit) but I am starting with version P.T 10.3.8 as a starting point to get Jam Origin to work in Pro Tools )

........................, I now get stopped upon Pro Tools startup - with the following message; " The selected ASIO audio device could not be initiallized, Please choose another device " ??? WTF??? ....., instructions on the Jam origin website are very vague and uninformative also ?

Also - since installing LoopBe 1 - I can no longer use the stand alone Jam Origin Migi Guitar either ...., as when I go to ; Audio Device / Device / Avid MBox pro ASIO 64bit ( as I selected before when it was working ie; before the loopBe 1 install)

..........., Now - If I try to select my MBox pro ( ie; my main analog to digital interface) I get an " ERROR WHEN TRYING TO OPEN AUDIO DEVICE" message from Jam Origin which reads , " No hardware found or already in use "

So therefore , since ive Installed LOOPBE1 ( as recommended by Jam Origin ) I cannot use Pro Tools , NOR Jam Origin Midi Guitar .
- I am about to uninstall LoopBe 1 , and hope everything returns back to normal ......, but I am still at a complete loss as to how to get this Jam Origins Midi Guitar to work in Pro Tools ...., which is ' THE ONLY REASON I purcheased this software .
