This MiniPak gives Jamstix the ability to generate Euclidean rhythms for drum set as well as
Jamcussion (hand percussion).

range of world rhythms. The algorithm used can be simply described as: “Within a length of equal musical ticks, distribute a given number of hits as evenly as
This is just the kind of thing that Jamstix excels at: apply a rule-based algorithm dynamically.
We have created several styles (with many presets) for this MiniPak that give you a quick
entry into this field.
We encourage you to play a lot with the Euclidean controls as explained in the manual so you
may discover entirely new combinations that will inspire your music in new ways.
