Spoke with some university friends today trying to rehearse remotely. In addition to advancements being made with JamKazam (new version due out soon) they tell me SoundJack is doing a good job. The example below has both slow and fast tempo numbers and these two are hitting together surprisingly well. The example also shows live performance streaming making use of a second computer to take the burden off of the first.
There’s a video demonstration in the link above but I can’t insert it here.
I was feeling the latency - particularly when the female vocalist took a verse. Either that or her phrasing was really weird.
Yes, I’m under the impression that the second demo was over 5G.
Her phrasing was odd, but I don’t know if that was latency as much as just her. The internet is inherently slow and efforts to make live play quick enough to be effective and satisfying have been lacking. So any steps toward improving the tech are welcome... especially of we're going to be careful about sharing breathing room for some time yet. A silver lining, perhaps.
I am skeptical. This morning, the round-trip ping to a guitar player across town (7 mi) was 64-70 ms.
That’s not good for the music making. A bit more info. Are you plugged into Ethernet on both sides? And using a low latency audio interface on both sides?
This was a round-trip network delay test between source/destination WAN IPs. It was measured by my ASUS router. The minimum round-trip time was 63 ms. Usually, the one-way delay is taken to be half of that.
