How do I connect my Jamstik to Mac via Bluetooth?




  • Takeshi Abekawa

    I have connected to mac bluetooth. Only 5th string does not sound. Other strings are all OK. I set up wrong way? Jamstik with iPhone 5S does work perfectly.

    Hi Takeshi, Are you using GarageBand? GarageBand on the Mac requires that you switch to single-channel MIDI mode. You can do this by pressing, "Enter and Right" on the D-Pad to toggle between single and omni-channel modes. This should clear up the non-sounding string.

    Thank you for reply. Yes I am using GarageBand. I set it up to single-channel MIDI mode. Non-sounding 5th string is fixed but 4th and 5th string has same sound. The Jamstik does not work at all when lesson mode (GarageBand), Is'nt it compatible?

    Hey again,

    Takeshi, were you able to update your device's firmware via the iOS app? If not, you should follow the instructions: - to reset your device back to default pick settings. I think this could be the issue with the 4th and 5th having cross-talk problems, causing the same note to ring out. If this does not help, please submit a ticket and our support team will be in touch with you soon. Unfortunately, the GarageBand Lessons are not compatible with MIDI devices, but we will soon have jamstik+ and jamTutor apps available for MAC, hopefully within this week!
