A Music Player With Many Great Features For Jam Sessions And Practice, Including The Revolutionary GXT (Guitar XTracktion) Function
The music player of the JamVOX Software features KORG's newly developed GXT technology that allows a guitar part of an existing song to be cancelled or extracted, a capability that will change the way guitarists of all levels and styles practice, play and jam. This technology is not a conventional vocal canceller which counteracts the center sounds by the reversed-phase signals. This conventional method turns the sound mono and also makes it impossible to extract the desired sound. GXT technology uses a completely different method in which the sound is analyzed by stereotactic position
and frequency band
