I'm really enjoying ThumbJam... The samples are excellent, the interface is so totally "playable" that I'll probably use it in live performanace soon.

Sounds great!

The only thing to watch out for is that the Rhodes instrument is a little hot, and it can cause clipping distortion if you're not careful... usually I will lower the volume for that loop, or if playing it as lead, adjust the controls to be fixed with a lower level or tilt it down a bit.

Thanks Jesse & Mat... I did notice some "hot" parts on the Rhodes... I recorded all the parts as loops and then simply played them into a session to capture the mix... I'll see what happens when I pull back on the Rhodes in the mixer.

Again, thanks for the feedback!
