#MusicIsMedicine

The team at UJAM acknowledges that in this challenging time for human beings everywhere on the planet, music is an essential source of strength and healing. And while we are happy and proud to provide the community with music-making software, we know that it takes more to fight for a better, more just world.

With #MusicIsMedicine (#MiM), we are raising awareness for social issues and pledge to donate a portion of our income in the second half of 2020 to Human Rights Watch.

Music is a great force in all human beings, regardless of age, gender, race, nationality or faith. While it can be merely good fun and entertainment or (alas!) background noise for selling consumer goods, it can be much more than that: solace, nostalgia, ecstasy, connection. From a parent singing for their baby to bands performing via video conference during the pandemic.

It was mid april and as usual I sat and mixed one song. Suddenly I slipped out of the chair without any alarming feelings prior. I had lost all of my right side and my speech from a stroke. The ambulance was fast so I got to the hospital in time. There they started at once to get my right side moving again. The second week a rehab woman came to me and brought a keyboard. I had managed to get them to understand that I was into music. She started to play a song that I knew I suddenly found myself singing. She told me that music (and other artistic things like painting) was handled by a different part of the brain than speech, math and those kind of things . After that I singed everything I wanted to say and that helped me to mend my speech even though it is not back as before yet. The coordination in my right arm is not there 100% either so playing my instruments have to wait a bit longer. Therefore I am so glad for the UJAM virtual instruments that I can play with one hand. The music got me back on track because music is medicine.

Bought it yesterday and have already got tracks down on two songs! I love it! All three of your products as a matter of fact..I’m a life long guitar player (almost 60 years) until the last few years as a rheumatism has worked its devilish ways into my hands.. I can still noodle around in open tuning using just a few fingers& strings at a time. My productivity with recording the songs I write fell of f the proverbial cliff.

Then, along comes VG.. Used with Cubase and it's Chord Track function I can “play” in ways I never have in my best years as a player. Styles & genre’s I’d never attempted. Needless to say, because of your products- I have all three- my creativity scaled that cliff & put up a guardrail around the edge. Thank YOU for doing these VI’s. Please, keep them coming! Anyway, again, thank you folks, sincerely.. Steve
