1. Remote interplay without delay is CAN be done

Remote interaction without delay via a live sound connection via internet.
Just from behind your computer? It is now working fine !
There is special software for it, like Jamkazam and Jamulus (see below).
There are higher standards asked the link.

Although Skype, FaceTime and Teams are excellent programs to follow online music lessons via video calling, they are NOT suitable for remote interaction. These programs are very user-friendly, so we continue to use it.

During the Corona crisis our students were able to continue with our violin and piano lessons, thanks to our experience with online music lessons live via video calling !
At the same time, we got a lot of questions from band members who wanted to play together via the internet.
Of course it takes a lot of time to find out how something like this works and many musicians would rather make music than research technical things.
Fortunately, our musician and PC technician Dennis can teach you how to do that and everything (,) set for you. More info: Remote help: Jamkazam / Jamulus.

Do you want online music lessons follow and play together with you teacher, but that is absolutely not possible with Skype, FaceTime of Teams ?
Do you want rehearse with your band members about the internet, but you don't know how?
Maybe you are looking for someone to share it with direct along play together of te improvise / boy?
We can to learn how to do it and everything (from on remotely) for you Set up.

Maybe you want to go together duets play with one professional violist or viola player, or are you looking for one professional pianobegeleider (co-tutoring)?
We offer the unique opportunity to get together musicianship with ourprofessional musicians and at the same time hereinthe to get.
These lessons can live online ,, in combination with special (below free) software for the synchronization of the sound.

We have tested two software programs that have been specially made for this purpose: Jamulus and JamKazam.
Both programs work with one server that coordinates all sound flows so that everyone without delay is audible.

At Jamkazam it is exclusively located on the platform itself, making it noticeable for everyone when the platform is busy. (for example. during this Corona crisis)
At Jamulus you can also set up your own server and there are servers spread all over the world, so you will always find a suitable one in your area. See below.

2. Conditions for remote interplay:

There are some conditions you have to comply with this in advance to work:

All parties must agree on one (recent) computer with a fast wired internet connection (LAN/ethernet) directly connected to the modem / router.
Unfortunately, it does not work properly via WIFI, then you get a lot of hiccups in the sound and delays. The use of headphones is also necessary.

You have to go over the necessary knowledge how to set up this software.
I can do fine with this at a distance help.

3. About Jamkazam

You have to install the JamKazam software on your computer and then create an account. It is a complete online platform. You can play with other users, but you can also create a private session or invite people from the community and make appointments. Jamkazam has an improved sound quality and also a video connection such as eg. Skype. Setting it up is a bit more difficult for the basic computer user, moreover in english, but once you know how it works it works fine.

I tried it in between Maastricht-Nijmegen and from this distance it worked perfectly.

4. About Jamulus

The Jamulus software is open-source and does not take up much space. Jamulus has no video connection, it is only for sound.
Jamulus consists of two parts, a client and a server. In principle, the client is enough for you, you can then choose a server in the area and play with other users.
Do you want to set up your own server or a private use it only for acquaintances accessible, then you can also start the server component on your computer. You must then be certain gates on your router to open, so that the server software from the internet accessible ?.
I tried out Jamulus in between Maastricht-Amsterdam and from this distance it worked perfectly.
This program works the easiest on a MacOS system, because there is no need for a separate audio driver.
With Windows you need an ASIO audio driver that normally only comes with professional sound cards, but you can also use the program ASIO4ALL, more info see the website of Jamulus.
You can combine Jamulus with eg. Teams for the video connection. In Teams you then switch off the microphone.
