Trying to emulate bass strings on harp guitar

Postby Cevyn » Fri Mar 27, 2015 11:19 am

I would like to be able to use thumb jam to trigger an acoustic bass sound in mainstage. I can configure a scale, but the sub bass strings are tuned for instance in one tune to (G1,Bb1,C2,A1,D2). Is it possible to do this in thumbjam?
Thx for any help!

I guess I need more information about what the problem is? You can adjust the octave with the Oct +/- buttons to cover the pitches that you need.

Yes I can acces all the notes as you suggest- but am wanting to mount the iPod to a guitar and use my thumb to trigger the 5 bass notes that would emulate the extra 5 strings on a bass guitar. I would play it live so I would want to configure the playing surface to only display those 5 notes at one time. I can creat a scale- but not able to figure out how to have the notes of different octaves available. Thx again. TJ was one of my first music apps many years ago- and still one the the most used! Thx!
