Welcome to Jammr community!
You can open the Technical support and read the following:
Sticky: How does jammr work?! Introduction to interval-based jamming by D4ni3L
And here is my explanation:
BPM is indeed the tempo and BPI (Beats Per Interval) means the LOOP LENGTH.
Basically you are considering the BPI length as a “brick”, which is used to build “a wall”.
“Bricks” will come one after the other to build a “row” (which is your track, your song containing the repetitive chord progression).
The other musicians' layers added over your track are other musician's “rows” of the “wall”.
They can hear your loop played over the BPI length later (due to latency), they play their part in sync with what they hear / sync with Metronome, which you will hear later superimposed exactly over your part.
This way numerous musicians can contribute adding their track played on their instruments.
Hope this helps. Good luck and have fun Jammr-ing!
