'JAM Live Music Arcade' (ALL) Remix & Rock Contest

by Rainier on Oct. 4, 2012 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

JAM Live Music Arcade gives you the freedom to become the DJ, producer and the band leader for total creative access in a live music sandbox.

JAM Live Music Arcade is a completely new approach to the music genre with a real-time live music sandbox that allows the player to immediately build and customize their very own tunes.

Starting with any one of the 30+ licensed songs featured in the game (including hits from Modest Mouse, Fallout Boy, Fatboy Slim, Rise Against, Atmosphere and more), players jam with and remix all aspects of the song – guitar, bass, drums, synth and vocals – to experiment with the song and re-create it to their own personality. All of this is done with any one of the compatible guitar gaming peripherals – the entire band is in your hands! Accessible and easy to get started, yet deep and almost endless to master, everyone can touch real music across a broad range of sonic tastes.

JAM Live Music Arcade offers an immersive level of musical interaction that’s inspiring, powerful and contagious.

Developer Zivix is offering up over $1,000 in prize gear to entrants who shoot and send in a video of themselves rocking out to one of 32 officially-licensed tracks. Film it, upload it to YouTube and send the link to That’s it – Reverb Publishing will select the top videos and inform winners at the close of the contest on November 1st, 2012.

Prizes up for grabs are:

  • 1st Place – PXD Tomb Guitar ($599 value): With supercharged active pickups, the Peavey PXD Series is the sound of full-on aggression and the perfect complement to the Peavey 6505® Series guitar amplifiers, already a metal legend in the arsenals of bands like Trivium, In Flames, Bullet For My Valentine, Machine Head, Darkest Hour and more. True to the music that inspired them, the new PXD Series guitars are built for speed, slicing leads and razor-sharp riffs.
  • 2nd Place – Retrofire Guitar Stage Pack ($199 value): The RetroFire Limited pack features a gloss black finish with a pearloid pickguard. The humbucking and single coil pickups provide a wide range of tonal responses. The unique body shape has a retro feel while still being quite contemporary. Basswood body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with dual reinforced truss rod and adjustable bridge are hallmarks of the quality of this instrument. The pack includes the guitar, GT-5 guitar amplifier, picks, strap, cable strings, tuner and learn-to-play DVD.
  • 3rd Place – GT-15FX amplifier ($149 value): TransTube Technology, 15 Watts RMS, 10” Speaker, Clean and Overdrive Channels, Three bands of EQ, 15 switchable digital effects, Effects Level, Separate Digital Reverb.
