The default settings don't allow rhythmical interaction - you must adjust them manually – please read the TUTORIAL and FAQ before using Soundjack (especially the TUTORIAL videos are recommended).

Soundjack is a realtime communication system providing any quality- and latency- relevant parameter to the user. Depending on the physical distance, network capacities, the actual network conditions and the actual routing even musical interaction or at least compromised musical interaction is possible. Soundjack uses Portaudio (http://www.portaudio.com) and Opus (https://opus-codec.org) and is a member of the fast research project (fast actuators, sensors and transceivers).


If you want to participate in the Soundjack community please check the TUTORIAL and the FAQ tab on this website first. Soundjack in completely free of charge, however, if you'd like to honor our work please donate an amount of your choice. This will enable us to evaluate more audio and network equipment and pushes our research and development further.

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.

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.

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'.
