Remote interaction without delay via a live sound connection via internet.

There is special software for it, like 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.

The lessons together can also live online ,, more info see Ensemble lessons.


We have thoroughly tested a software program that is made especially for this purpose: Jamulus.
This program works with a server that coordinates all sound flows so that everyone without delay is audible.

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 with a software program like Jamulus:

Ethernet cable

All parties must agree on one (recent) computer with a fast wired internet connection (LAN/ethernet) directly connected to the modem / router.

It doesn't work well over WiFi, then you get a lot of hitches in the sound, poor sound quality and DOES delays. If a cable connection is NOT possible for you, it is better NOT to start playing together remotely. To play for someone, can you do better standard use video conferencing program (without possibility to play together).

Furthermore, the use of headphones is necessary at Jamulus.
You have to go over the necessary knowledge how to set up this software.
I can help you with this, see: Remote help

3. 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, but you can do this. combine with video from another video conferencing program that you disable the microphone function of.

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 is and give your fellow players your public IP address and port number.

I have Jamulus a.o. tried out between Maastricht-Amsterdam and even at this distance it still 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.

Do you have help needed when installing, setting up and / or testing Jamulus, make a appointment with Dennis, our pc technician, violinist and violin teacher:
