Anyone rehearsing remotely in the new post C19 world? What are you using and how is it working out?
JamKazam is working so far.
Do you mean that you guys can play live together - each from your own house?
I did a quick google search on this issue last night and was left with the impression that latency is an unavoidable issue with make real-time rehearsal impossible in practice.
could you please elaborate for those of us who know nothing about JamKazam?
I just looked this up and I’m surprised at what they are claiming. Are you rehearsing in real-time with other musicians distributed? Is it reliable?
There is some latency, yes. Not to the point that we are all throwing up our hands and calling it. This has been our only real way to play lately, so we take it.
It has been reliable, though. No locking or crashes.
I tried Jamkazam a while back, its pretty good!
For those using Jamkazam - did you need to get the $300 interface box for it to work?
Bump for more input. Really feel the need to play with the band!
I'd like to hear more from current users. Looks like you need a computer and a digital interface. Not really that expensive these days.
Some latency?! Timing is everything (except for all the other things which are also everything). By the time your signal gets to the other guy, the other guy plays to that, and then his signal gets back to you... you're telling me this is acceptable timing? If so, I'm amazed.
It seems wild but this can work.
A buddy sent me this.
I haven't tested this plugin with another person but the latency that the web site is reporting is only 3 milliseconds. Figure someone at the other end is also 3 MS and this should work.
I'm still working out the kinks with Jamkazam setup but their latency is supposed to be tolerable for live use.
Bumping this. Looks like it to me. But I'd love to hear some detail from someone using it. What did it take to get going? I can see me and my duo partner buying one each. But not all members of our 4-piece band.
Also, I'm sure there will be other devices popping up soon if not already. Do these have an open compatibility with other devices? Or is it a closed propriety thing where everyone needs the same brand device and their online service?
Been experimenting and you shouldn’t need to buy the interface. I can set it up and it says my latency is good
but I still haven’t tried it.
I tried https://jammr.net/ Was fairly easy to connect. It is currently free, as it is in Beta test right now. There wasn't a whole lot going on there as far as jams, but I did join a couple of public jams. The volume of the other instruments seemed low. I don't know if they were just playing at low volume or is that something with the site...
If anybody else has the time to check it out, I'd like to hear what others have to say about it. Thanks!
Bumping this...we tried again last night but just with Zoom. Definitely no good for jamming.
Anyone having any luck with any other products?

Specifically, post #23 for a good writeup of a member's band experience.
There are other threads on the board about Jamkazam if you search.
I tried jammr.net and it seemed easy to use. Didn’t notice any latency issues but I would like to get the “Premium” subscription for $9.99 a month to get the ability to have private jams. My friend and I tried it out but about 3 other people joined in because it was public...
