ALL IN ONE

Get rid of all the untidy cables you once needed: the JM-8 is a single unit exclusively dedicated to live performances. A separate mixer and external effects processors are no longer needed, meaning less to carry, and quicker to set-up.

ENJOYING KARAOKE

Enjoy singing together! The JM-8 can play back audio files (WAV or MP3) and Standard MIDI (SMF) files. There is no need to buy dedicated “karaoke versions” of the music you wish to perform. You can minimize the vocal sounds of an audio file (using the Center Cancel function) and sing the vocal part (or play the solo guitar part) yourself. Two microphones can be connected at the same time (or one microphone and one electric guitar) for an amazing show.
Your musical event can be recorded instantly thanks to the “Audio Recording” function and later burned to CD, so you can listen to your performances whenever you want.

ENHANCE YOUR VOCAL PERFORMANCES

Have you ever dreamed of having a superbly rich, deep voice? Thanks to the Voice transformer you can change the sound of your voice into a robot, animal or a member of the opposite sex.
Also thanks to the harmony features you can add automatic harmonies (up to 4 voices) simply by singing along with an SMF song.

CREATE YOUR PLAY LIST

Thanks to the JM-8’s Play List function, you can program set lists for your performances, so you won’t need to spend time looking for the desired songs on stage. This functionality also allows you to use the JM-8 for background music purposes while nobody is singing or playing. You can also prepare the next song while the current one is still running, with smooth transition between the two.

CLEVER LIBRARY

Finding your favourite songs in your library is simple. Now you can work with a huge number of songs in the internal hard disk-drive, on USB storage devices, or on CD-ROM thanks to a sophisticated search function.

AUDIO-VIDEO INTERACTIVITY

The JM-8 includes several video functions that allow you to display song lyrics, picture slideshows, notation of the songs you want to play, and video signals from external devices on the internal display, an external screen or both, with the option to overlay the song lyrics.

USE SLIDE SHOWS BASED ON YOUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHS

The JM-8 can use your own photos to create slide shows that can run while you are performing or listening to your favourite music. Your digital camera can be connected directly to the JM-8’s USB port for on-the-fly slide shows. Several dedicated functions allow you to enhance your slide shows with dynamic effects (“ANIME” function).

EXTREMELY INTUITIVE USER-INTERFACE

The JM-8 was designed to be simple to use. The big full-colour touch-sensitive screen provides direct access to the available functions.

REAL-TIME ACCESS TO ALL CONNECTED STORAGE DEVICES

A USB port is included for storage and backup, along with an internal 120GB hard disk and CD-ROM drive. Access and data playback using all storage devices is immediate and permanent.

A POWERFUL MIDI MODULE

The JM-8 internal sound source can be controlled via MIDI (from a MIDI accordion, a MIDI keyboard, or a computer).
