    Soundtrack still has more

    Soundtrack is for video soundtracks--not a direct alternative or upgrade to GarageBand. Still, if you want to compare... GB has 1000 loops, and JP adds another 2000. But ST still has more: 4000 out of the box.

    (Are the GB and JP ones all taken from the ST set, or are there any new ones?)

    "In this article, we take the most in-depth look ever at the Jam Pack add-on"

    In other words...they list the files that are in the pack.

    Yes, but don't you think the author of the article could have spent more than a minute on the whole thing? Look what I did, I condensed 500 lines into less than 20. It makes it much easier to see what is there.

    I don't really see too much about the effects either.
    I'm thinking about getting the package, so I can use it for multimedia work like buttons etc. but I don't really know if it's worth it.
