DAW into JamKazam?
#1
Possible to send DAW in to JamKazam?  I use my daw mixer for my drum set (I don’t have a physical mixer to sum it down to two channels).  Or using fx chains from daw could be useful as well.

It does work if you have some sort of audio routing software/driver to work it. I'm running my sound through Reaper into Jamkazam and back using ReaRoute, basically followed what this guy did: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=158500

This is specific to Reaper though, other DAWs would need a different audio routing software like Jack Router or something.

IF anyone solves this for Macs and Logic, I would be grateful.  At the very least, how to keyboard players work with this?  We trigger samplers and tone generators in the computer, how is this supposed to work?

There is some free audio routing software called Blackhole. My keyboard player uses it to send his audio from Mainstage to Jamkazam. Paid alternatives include Loopback2, and audio hijack. There is also one for older macOS's (before Mojave maybe??) called Soundflower that was very popular.

The idea is you set your DAW main output to Blackhole (or whatever you use) channels 1 and 2, then use those same channels 1 and 2 as your inputs to JK. Set your JK output to your headphones, wherever they may be (headphone jack built in or an audio interface).

I'm on a Mac, and as a test I decided to install SoundFlower. It's an old piece of software and I'm on HighSierra. The install went fine and when I set things up, I experienced a significant amount of delay to the DAW=latency. Not sure what you're trying to accomplish but if it's to Record your session into the DAW, the latency wouldn't matter as long as you turn of monitoring form the DAW side. Otherwise, if you're trying to insert Effects, you may want to try JK audio device options to add VSTs. Personally, my effects are hardware based so i can turn knobs and on/off with my foot.

Try Blackhole as marhdeth said...

I see.. it's a replacement for SoundFlower. I didn't catch that immediately. A good tip for me too. Thanks

I posted this to the FB group JamKazam Jammers.  I hope it helps the Mac users with Logic.  Should be similar setup though for any DAW in MacOS.

Integrating your DAW with JamKazam in MacOS

ERIC MCQUAID·TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 2020·


Integrating a DAW is tricky. At least it was for me... You need a Virtual Interface like Soundflower, Soundsiphon, or Blackhole...  This should work for any internal source like a DAW, any internal audio like youtube or music from any player, etc...

You can test this by starting a solo session and recording your audio. If the recording has the DAW effects or internal audio, you're good to go ...  if not, you need to configure some additional software..

To get my gear working with Logic Pro X, I installed Blackhole on my mac and then I created an Aggregate Device under Audio MIDI Setup.

Here are some step-by-step instructions for MacOS.

Integrating a DAW with JamKazam in MacOS

In the Digital Audio Workstation(DAW) such as Logic Pro X(LPX) Preferences:
Input is your Audio Interface (AI),
Output to Blackhole,

In Audio MIDI Setup(this is a settings page in Mac.  To get there, I hit Command+Space and type audio midi setup and select it from there...):
Create an Aggregate Device(AD) with both of those.. I called my AD AgJam so I will never forget the purpose of this AD, but you can name this AD after your dog, your guitar or whatever.
Set your AI as the Clock Source and enable Drift Correction(DC) for each source besides the AI, so check DC for Blackhole.

In JamKazam(JK):
Your Audio Gear setup Inputs is Blackhole,
Output is Audio Interface.

Back in your DAW:
Finally, you start a short loop in Logic.  I have a a 4 bar loop, press spacebar and those 4 bars just repeat over and over.  This must be playing for the DAW to send audio to Blackhole.  I am novice in LPX, so if I have described this incorrectly or if there is another way to achieve this critical piece, please let me know.

** NB: You will not hear audio until you return to JK and join a session. **
Thank you to Benoît Lemonde who assisted me in getting my LPX configured and working with Jamkazam. I never could have done this without you Benoît.  My skillz just didn’t match this challenge!  Thank you, Benoît.
