ThumbJam Operation Without Sight
Posted: Thu May 02, 2013 12:21 am
I am still trying to figure out how to set the desired key in ThumbJam. I read something about dragging the pitchbar, but I don't know how to DRAG AYTHING on an IPhone. On the play area, if I drag my finger anywhere, either end, or the middle, I move up or down the scale. I also wonder if I have too many items visible on the IPhone - perhaps I need to hide some of them. I received a message from Ken Downey saying that he has a podcast demonstrating the things I am trying to do, but I cannot find it. At present, my opinion of the ThumbJam is either that it is pure "hocus-pocus" - fumble around and you MIGHT find what you want - or else the system is horrbly imprecise. I hope, of course, that neither case is true; but I need some help in theform of an audible demonstration or something that will get me the information I need in a way that a totally-blind person can use it. If a professional musician can use ThumbJam RELIABLY - and I have had a lot of musical training - then I'd like to know how to get what you want on it. I have read the manual a couple of times, but I still can't figure it out. When I first installed it, the play rea was on the right side. Now, there are apparently some numbers on the right, and the pla area is somewhere - heaven knows where - on thetouch screen. Is thee reliable way to reset the program to the defaults? I hope someone can help me.
