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.

click on me

JamTuner - 03:08

ganja-lo ?

angelo - 03:08

its not letting me click on you

JamTuner - 03:07

gangalo !

JamTuner - 23:27

hey Skip

JamTuner - 20:40

they have low internal latency and lotsa ppl use 'em on the collaboration sites

JamTuner - 20:39

behringer has good, cheap interfaces that work -

mtillerman - 20:36

I tried soundmapper and ASIO4ALL, ok let me see if I can use fender

JamTuner - 20:34

Fender has a good asio driver that people have had luck with, if you do not have native dasio driver

JamTuner - 20:33

what interfaces are you using ?

JamTuner - 20:33

ASIO - yes !

mtillerman - 20:31

so we have to go through asio rather than default drivers if our OS is windows right?

mtillerman - 20:29

that's what I'm working on right now

JamTuner - 20:28

try to use native asio drivers for your interfaces

JamTuner - 20:27

asio4all is pretty much a no-no too

JamTuner - 20:25

wireless causes droputs and a lot of other needless stuff - wireless is encrypted ...etc

JamTuner - 20:24

headphones ? xlr microphone ?

mtillerman - 20:24

yea latency can be a real issue

JamTuner - 20:23

wireless is a fail for online music collaboration

mtillerman - 20:23

that's right

JamTuner - 20:22

are you using asio or core audio interfaces NOT your internal soundcards ?

mtillerman - 20:22

no i'm on wireless, but this was working earlier on a test case between me and my buddy

mtillerman - 20:22

i'm having trouble with asio4all - probably the likely cause

JamTuner - 20:21

are you on a WIRED connection to ur router ?

JamTuner - 20:21

lets start from base 1

mtillerman - 20:21

let me check on that

mtillerman - 20:20

well that's not good

JamTuner - 20:20

nasty noises

JamTuner - 20:20

what the hell guys ?

mtillerman - 20:19

oh cool, I hear it

JamTuner - 20:03

I'm streaming audio , so if you need a "soundcheck" click on my green arrow

JamTuner - 19:57

where's your bud ?

JamTuner - 19:57

cool - if u need any help click me :)
