Anyone with basic digital audio editing software can virtually remix the entire song. Hear the individual performances of each band member. Have fun, add your own parts, etc. along with the band!  Including:
    • Drums
    • Bass
    • Rhythm Guitars
    • Lead Guitar
    • Lead Vocals
    • Backing Vocals
  • Also included in “Additives” are 4 Ringtones of Jelly Jam tunes. Each ringtone is included as a *M4R (Ringtone) file as well as an MP3 file:
    • “Nature’s Girl” (from The Jelly Jam)
    • “I Am the King” (from The Jelly Jam)
    • “Not Today” (from 2)

Jelly Jam 3 (finally)

5th May 10 (Wed) Leave a comment

Per Ty Tabor on Facebook… “will begin working on the third Jelly Jam album later this month. I’m psyched to be recording with John Myung and Rod Morgenstein again.  Jelly Jam 3 will be! It’s taken a few years, but we finally worked out our schedules. I can’t wait to find out what “

The other related collaborations (JJ1 & 2, Platypus, Jughead) are all tops, if you ask me.  I can’t wait for JJ3

posted on Ty Tabor‘s website

Ty Tabor (King’s X), John Myung (Dream Theater), and Rod Morgenstein (tons of bands) are discussing the possibility of recording a new Jelly Jam album in 2010. This would be their third release as The Jelly Jam and their fifth overall release together. More news coming soon!  [Editor’s note: yay!  The Jelly Jam / Platypus / Jughead releases are some of my favorites from Ty]

Ty has some things on eBay at the moment and plans to sell some of Alien Beans Studio’s gear over the next month. Keep an eye out at eBay.

King’s X is still working on the live DVD shot in London earlier this year. Look for a 2010 release.

Ty’s new solo album is coming along nicely. The yet untitled album will also be released in 2010. [Editor’s note: double yay!]
