Sound designer Niall McCallum invites you to a Caribbean paradise with Tropical Jam—a Strum GS-2 sound pack with an abundance of laidback grooves and a chilled-out vintage vibe.

From sub-heavy muted riffs and offbeat chords, to delay-drenched stabs and relaxed picked melodies, this sun-soaked collection will have you falling in love with the spiraling sound of spring reverb.

Tropical Jam pays homage to the legends of reggae and dub including the heavily rhythmic finger-work of Sly & Robbie, Bob Marley & The Wailers, and the booming sound system aesthetics of King Tubby and Lee 'Scratch' Perry. Featuring 12 styles, 84 guitar presets, and 84 strumming patterns playable with your own chord progressions, the sounds of Tropical Jam beg you to slow down the tempo and reach for your shades.
