Howto

Installation guide

  • Register on soundjack.eu
  • Once registered log in and click on Download tab
  • Download either windows or Mac OS depending on your system. Win users will need an ASIO sound device. If not existing please download the ASIO4ALL driver as well and install it: http://www.asio4all.com
  • Extract and open the downloaded file.
  • Run the soundjack application by doubleclicking on the binary file (Win: soundjack.exe / OSX: soundjack.app) - Important: A small XLR Icon in your dock will show up. This confirms the soundjack engine is running and working fine. On Windows you will see an additional DOS-type console.
  • Once the plugin is running on your machine return to the sound jack website and click the stage tab

 

Configuration

  • Once you have successfully ran the application you will need to set your drivers/settings within the web browser. This may take some tweaking.
  • Select your current driver IN/OUT (on Windows for most it will likely be some form of ASIO driver)
  • Select a Sample Buffer (If you’re experiencing audio issues try raising the sample size to the next higher)
  • Select send channels. These should correlate to the inputs of your interface. Example inputs 1+2 would use 2 send channels. If you had a mic on in1 and a guitar on in3 you’d most likely need to select 4 channels here.
  • Lastly choose your network buffer and OPUS bit rate. The higher the OPUS bit rate the higher the quality but subsequently the more data will be transmitted which could cause issues with slowing internet connections.

 

Lower network buffers will lower latency but could also create issues with streaming quality. Network buffers will correspond to peers’ sample buffer. For example, if they have a higher sample buffer (512 for instance) you may not need as large of a network buffer your end (perhaps 128). The opposite would also be true if the sender is sending smaller packets (say 128) the network buffer may need to be increased. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the internet and individual hardware setups, there is no straight forward way to determine the optimal settings for everyone so you are encouraged to tweak these settings to find out what works best for your session. OPUS bit rate in short the higher the bit rate the better quality the audio. Linear is uncompressed. 96 kbps is compressed by a factor of 8, 48 kbps by a factor of 16 etc. One thing to keep in mind is that this is the quality of each individual track so the more tracks you have sending the greater the speed requirements. Example one track at 96 kbps will be sending as much information as 4 tracks at 24 kbps.

Can you provide me a screencast of your tests - this will help debugging. Thanks !

Al Hofmann - 16:33

Ty, have a nice afternoon :-)

Al Hofmann - 16:32

It makes funny noises on Windows 10, a sort of cracking...

jazzalex - 16:31

On OSX it works very well - on Windows I have not tested much. In any case it is improving over time.

Al Hofmann - 16:30

ok, ty Alex is the video working?

jazzalex - 16:29

Sorry, not yet - have to do some more development. Maybe some other day.

Al Hofmann - 16:28

Is anybody playing? I don't hear anything....

Al Hofmann - 19:29

you need to start the exe file first prior to broadcast...

Al Hofmann - 19:28

Hi DT, are you broadcasting?

DTseven2 - 19:27

Hopefully someone can halp

DTseven2 - 19:27

Seem to need some port-forwarding config that i can't get going

DTseven2 - 19:26

it seems everythings green but no connection possible

DTseven2 - 19:26

can someone confirm the funcitonality of the audio mirror germany?

DTseven2 - 19:26

Hello guys

D4n - 19:13

ja, ok..... und nun?

D4n - 19:10

ah, ja... danke

jazzalex - 19:06

Genau

D4n - 19:05

die .exe im gezippten ordner?

jazzalex - 19:03

Ja, die Kontrolle der App läuft via Browser, aber die App selbst muss laufen.

D4n - 19:02

dachte ich

D4n - 19:01

as geht übern browser

D4n - 19:01

oh, ja....ok

jazzalex - 19:01

Ja - Dein Icon ist rot - also läuft die App nicht.

jazzalex - 19:00

Hört sich so an, als würde die App nicht laufen.

D4n - 18:50

und mein interface wird nicht angezeigt....

D4n - 18:49

die auswahlmöglichkeit ist leer....ßß?

D4n - 18:49

wie stelle ich denn den in-/output ein?

D4n - 18:49

hi

JamTuner - 20:47

hello ?

JamTuner - 17:24

vielen Dank Alex :)

jazzalex - 11:01

Happy birthday, Arne !

jazzalex - 20:21

Just sent you a mail. In any case a native ASIO card is better than ASIO4ALL.

Sundari LS - 19:30

we have problems to activate the intern mic. We downloaded Asio4ALL and the parameter of soundlevel is not moving. What could be wrong?

Sundari LS - 19:28

Hello Alexander,

Carroll - 05:30

Oh solo me o

Carroll - 04:36

hello

Carroll - 19:23
