“Jam with players hundreds of miles away!”
Hey gang – this little blue box really works. There have been internet-based music collaboration solutions attempted in the past, but this is the first one to solve the problems of latency and high cost. I strapped on a bass guitar and headset and jammed on Honky Tonk Woman along with a drummer by my side and a guitar player 400 miles away. I detected no latency – they claim less then 18.3ms in a 500 mile session – and it worked without a hitch. To test how it would work without a video feed, I turned my back on the monitor and drummer and played along with no problem. It was as comfortable as tracking in a DAW session. Of course, there are limitations based on distance between units and connection speeds.
I can see myself using this to work out parts with my old band mates who live out of state. Even if you have a casual band, the Jamlink would provide rehearsal and collaboration opportunities that would save on travel time and expenses and pay for itself in no time.
“The jamLink connects musicians in real-time over the Internet. Experience ‘in-the-room’ feel with CD quality audio, and jam with players across town or hundreds of miles away. This revolutionary new device is great for collaborating, song writing and jamming.
