GarageBand Jam Pack: 12-string Chord layout Apps
GarageBand's Jam Pack add-on comes with a lot of great additional Software Instruments, Effects and Loops. One of the new instruments, the 12 String Chords Guitar, emulates a person strumming guitar chords (3 or more simultaneous notes) instead of playing an individual note.

There are a total of 24 chords, 12 major & 12 minor chords. If you're using the onscreen keyboard, the split between the major and minor chords is at the E key above the C3 key. Everything below the E3 key is Major, everything from E3 and above is Minor.

I'm tempted to get the jam pack but I'd like to know which instruments are represented first. a mention of thousands isn't exaclty helpful.

Are there violins? trumpets? Bodhrain?

I'd just like to see a list first. Or at the least a yay or nay on certain types of instruments.

I've put together a list of Software Instruments and Real Instrument settings both in HTML and as an Excel Spreadsheet.

You can view it HERE and download the Excel file HERE

The instruments I particularly like was the 12-String Chord Guitar, the tremolo guitar, the deep and fingered basses, and the Tribal Kit (which includes a fantasic Rainstick sample). I suppose one of the tribal kit drums could be similar to a bodhran, though you can't emulate the pitch nuances a true bodhran player can pull off.

Hope that helps.

P.S. I've put together a song that uses the tremolo guitar, rainstick, organ, jazz kit and bass. It's available at GBXchange.com: You can listen to it HERE.

Any idea how the jampack compares to the loops that come with Soundtrack? I have Soundtrack, and I'd be interested in picking up more non-specific loops, but not if there's going to be a lot of redundancy.
