Online Jamming and Concert Technology

Stanford University via Kadenze

students interested

Today's vast amount of streaming and video conferencing on the Internet lacks one aspect of musical fun and that's what this course is about: high-quality, near-synchronous musical collaboration. Under the right conditions, the Internet can be used for ultra-low-latency, uncompressed sound transmission. The course teaches open-source (free) techniques for setting up city-to-city studio-to-studio audio links. Distributed rehearsing, production and split ensemble concerts are the goal. Setting up such links and debugging them requires knowledge of network protocols, network audio issues and some ear training.

I got to jam with someone on the other side of the world! The class is good, but the software seems a bit difficult to run at first to connect to other musicians. By the end i got used to it.

Excellent course created by the people that have helped pioneer the technology. Does require a lot of patience with setting up and testing technology to get the most out of it.

Thank you for your course.

It was very informative for me as a software developer and a non-professional musician.

PS: Special thanks for network tech details!
