The Jambot is a musical robot that listens to music and jam along. It is computer software that can, for example, play along with a band, or improvise some beats to a record being played by a DJ.
Frequently musicians will use backing tracks or looping pedals to augment their sound, but these technologies are not responsive to what's happening on stage. The Jambot utilises new state-of-the-art music perception algorithms to 'listen' to the musicians and respond to the way the music changes.
- Can jam along to any audio signal
- It improvises
- 'Listens' and responds
