fallback system in case of laptop failure

Just talk about kJams stuff with each other, describe things you did that worked, talk about your setup, anything that doesn't fit into the other forums!

fallback system in case of laptop failure

Post by ocheye »

I use KJams for backing tracks as a solo singer/guitarist. Most of my tracks have been modified (start/end points, keys etc). I use a MacBook Pro but live in fear that the system may fail.
I have had one or two glitches in the past but nothing that has prevented me from continuing.
I have an iPad and an iPhone and wondered if it is possible to play the tracks/playlists (as saved in KJams) with one or other of these devices and ideally be able to see displayed lyrics and have the tracks pause automatically and cue up for the next track.
It is purely for emergency use but I would feel a lot happier if I had a fallback system. Does anyone have the same issue and have they found a solution?

you can export your songs to your iPad, which preserves key changes, but it does NOT preserve your start / end points.

better to just have a second computer, with a literal CLONE of your setup, also running at the same time, that you can instantly switch over to.

Thanks Dave. My intention is to get a second laptop eventually. I understand that this will require me to purchase another edition of the software. Is that correct?

PS Many thanks for your help recently. As you suggested, I have reviewed and restored and reloaded every track and things are running relatively smoothly now
