I've never used this and really have no use for it myself, but I just came across mention of this software elsewhere and thought some of you folks might find it useful:

Jamulus

Quote
The Jamulus software enables musicians to perform real-time jam sessions over the internet. There is one server running the Jamulus server software which collects the audio data from each Jamulus client, mixes the audio data and sends the mix back to each client.

Jamulus is Open Source software (GPL, GNU General Public License) and runs under Windows (ASIO), MacOS (Core Audio) and Linux (Jack). It is based on the Qt framework and uses the OPUS audio codec.

The required minimum internet connection speed is 200 kbps for the up- and downstream. The ping time (i.e. round trip delay) from your computer to the server should not exceed 40 ms average.

They have a discussion board here.

Modern communications infrastructure is not quite up to the task. There still are latency and glitch issues in the best case scenarios.

This will be viable in the not so distant future.

I don't know why there would be latency and glitch issues if everyone involved has a good high speed Internet connection.

People don't complain about latency and glitches when they're watching Netflix and the like. As far as I know (haven't checked) this is audio only so it's far less bandwidth intensive than a video stream, too.

But I've never used it, don't know much (anything) about it, so maybe there are issues that I'm not aware of.

The issue is that Netflix is _one-way_, and uses buffering (at the TV end) to "cover up" the short unpredictable delays in packet transmission.

For a jam session (or any multi-player music over the Internet), you need _two-way_ communication. If any player has a buffer (to cover up network delays), he'll hear the other player(s) slightly delayed, and his own playing will be slightly delayed as a result:

. . . and the other player(s) will wonder why his entries are always late.

It's a _really_ hard problem to solve.
