Dev status

If you report of a bug, a crash or other forms of disfunction please provide as much information as possible (under which conditions, after which amount of time, after application of which parameters etc.). A single info such as "it crashes" or "it does not work" is completely useless to us. Ideally provide a short screen cast of what is happening on your machine as this is the most effective way to figure to actual problem.


Current Soundjack version (Released Monday, 24th of May 2020):

  • Dual mono also available on loopback and on 4, 8 and 16 channel sound cards
  • OSX: Terminal starter script for OS 10.14 and 10.15 included in the DMG installer
  • 16 channel support and channel selector (requires debugging – please report)
  • bypass of the SJ mixer / direct output of received streams to an audio server (individual channel mapping)
  • internal UDP port change to 50050
  • Allow peers to behave like mixing servers (send the received sum to anyone connected)
  • Windows: Show ASIO control panal as replacement for sample buffer configuration
  • Windows: WASAPI support for inbuilt soundcards (avoid sample buffers < 512)
  • 1-channel support still buggy and can lead to distortions - fix asap


Currently priorizized requests:

  • IPv6 support
  • inbuilt metronome
  • 96 kHz and 192 kHz support
  • implementation of a VST interface (delayed)
  • Video debugging on Linux and improvement on OSX and Windows 
  • Soundjack hardware (done, beta tests running – see


Not scheduled yet:

  • 32 bit Linux version
  • Casual ID user list conflicts
  • More mixer features such as panning
  • implementation of a streaming server
  • MIDI Support
  • communicate user status (waiting for calls, private, auto decline)
  • iOS / Android implementation
  • profile features such as instrument, availability etc.

It is strange today, the box for the "packets" sent stopped working (it became light grey). However, we were able to continue our rehearsal just fine.

jazzalex - 15:54

Yes, there are several SJ-Online teachers including ourselves.

fminaux - 15:35

Ok, that sounds good. I am going to experiment teaching lessons using SJ next week. I will let you know how it goes. Have you guys taught using SJ before?

jazzalex - 15:13

I myself don't use the starter anymore. I left it in the bundle just in case when others have problems. Please try without but make sure SJ is enabled in the security settings.

fminaux - 15:09

Hi Alex, i was wondering if we still need to run the SJ Starter with the newest version of SJ200524? Thank you! François

JamTuner - 23:01

Fiddleman- you friend has DL'd the SJ client properly and installed and opened it ( while not on the webpage) and the opened the browser page ?

JamTuner - 23:00

I use an apoolo quad , no problem for years :)

JamTuner - 22:55

after that the connection box ( normally green with "4" ) can be lowered or raised to fine tune jitter

JamTuner - 22:53

fiddleman- always start with nw buffer at512- then when you have connected to someone, lower it incrementelly to the lowest setting that works...

fiddleman - 22:45

Thanks for changing your buffer for me!

fiddleman - 22:45

Thanks. Still learning how to optimize this. I'm on the phone with CyClone.52 (an old buddy of mine). We're trying to do our first 'session'.
