With UJAM, you can create music for all the things in your life, for free!
Make your music.

If you've got a tune in your head, start your session by singing, whistling, humming, or playing an instrument to record your idea.
Then, move on to produce a full track with professional backing instruments and styles. Or, start by rejamming a song template, loading a saved session, or uploading a file from your computer.
No matter the starting point, you'll reach the same results: high-quality songs produced with the UJAM studio at your fingertips. 


Anywhere and Everywhere

UJAM is in the cloud, which means you don't have to rely on cumbersome software downloads and creativity-halting updates.
Instead, you can trust that anywhere you can access the internet with Flash, you can use UJAM. And if you thought that being in the cloud meant sacrificing quality, we're happy to say you thought wrong: having UJAM is like having a full studio at your disposal. And we'll continue to implement new features that make it even more powerful. All of this means that when you feel the urge to create, UJAM is your go-to outlet, anywhere in the world.


A Band in your Hands

UJAM is made for all people, regardless of skill level, to create and produce great songs. The user interfaces and designs are intended to guide you through the process of creation and production, so you don't get stuck in no-man's-land somewhere in the middle. You'll find tools and tips to help you out when you need it, plus buttons to give feedback to the team or ask for support at any time. The UJAM Team is always here to help you make the most of your sessions.
While UJAM's technology may seem simple, the results are huge. Whether you want a string orchestra to accompany your vocal track or a campfire guitar to be the melody instrument in a slow waltz, UJAM allows you to create tracks as simple or complex as you want, always with the same result: incredible quality. 


Sound like a Pro

You've now got a chance to produce professional-quality tracks using the plethora of instruments, styles, and editing options in UJAM. UJAM's styles were all created by professionals: the instruments are real, the styles meticulously created by professional music producers from many different genres and styles. Where else do you have a professional backup band following your every musical move?

Share with the World

We think it's more fun when you share your songs with people. That's why we've made it easy to publish your UJAM songs to Facebook, upload them to Sound Cloud, or send them to one person at a time.
Give and get feedback on songs by commenting on them and rating them, and see the top picks reflected in the UJAM Favorites on the Explore page. However you do it, sharing is an integral part of the interactive online community of artists that UJAM is building. Jump on in! 

Perhaps best of all, UJAM is free!

You’ve been yammered at before about the possibility of console development, but a recent innovation may just interest you even more than those ramblings about XNA, coding, and all that related madness. In fact, this one is touted as being aimed at complete beginners (even children) so there’s really no excuse for you to cross your arms and complain that it’s too difficult.

The name is Kodu. Its job: to be a fully-fledged game creation lab for the Xbox 360, allowing practically anybody to generate their own awesome project in a matter of minutes, using only the Xbox and a handy controller. And it costs the equivalent of just five US buckaroos.

kodu02

Described by Destructoid as easier to use than even Game Maker, Kodu Game Lab is promoted by its colourful, family-friendly (and noob-comprehensible) interface that’s based on icons and “when/do” event interactions rather than codes or scripts. In fact, if you DO somehow manage to find any code that’s not cleverly disguised by some sort of cutesy interface, you should write in to the devs now to claim your medal, because the rest of us have certainly overlooked it.

Kodu itself is built on the XNA framework, and affords users both power and flexibility – or at least, it does the best job that it can given the limited controls and the necessity for simplicity. Kotaku had issues with the interface at times, but also praised the tool for its versatility and wide array of options. That, and its inherent cuteness, scored it a few extra points.

As far as distribution is concerned, Kodu allows you to share your games with your friends on Xbox Live and let them play through your creations. Unfortunately, it doesn’t extend far beyond that (one can assume that people universally sharing every single Kodu project out there would be a tad overwhelming) but as a beginner you’ll probably just want to keep your work amongst your buddies, rather than subject them to the ogrish stupidity of the broader gaming population anyway.

kodu01So, in a nutshell: is Kodu any good? Well, if you’re used to more powerful game creation tools and don’t mind digging into code, general consensus is that this tool isn’t necessary and will probably just feel limiting. But if you need to dip your toes into the shallow end of the game development pool (or know somebody who does) then here’s a great way to do it. It has already been met with hearty praise in classrooms and after-school projects.

Kodu is arguably the simplest and easiest game creation tool in the existence of everything ever, and is available from Xbox Community Games for 400 MS points. If you own an Xbox and are completely green when it comes to game development, give this a go. It could be just the springboard you were always looking for.Major
