Hello all I've just registered and have never done live stream playing. I'm looking for the best/easiest way to mic drums, I have a Mac Pro with 2 thunderbolt ports. I have a little Tascam DP-006, will that work or will I get latency? Thanks!

Using jammr is similar to recording on your computer. It appears the Tascam DP-006 has a Line Out that can be connected to a computer or sound interface. The USB on the Tascam DP-006 cannot be used for live recording.

I recommend trying to record yourself in Garageband or your favorite DAW first and when you are happy with your tone then switching to jammr is easy.

jammr can use built-in soundcards but they usually have poor quality microphones. You can try the built-in soundcard to get started and then upgrade to a USB sound interface later, if necessary.

After launching jammr, connect to a jam session (you'll see a list in the “Connect to server…” dialog). Once you've joined your friends will see your username in the jam session list when they open the “Connect to server…” dialog.

Many electronic drumkits have USB audio connections. They can be plugged straight into a computer, making recording easy. If yours doesn't have USB audio then the next easiest approach is to connect the Line Out/Headphone output to your computer's soundcard.

Ask your bandmates to install jammr (https://jammr.net/download.html) and they will see your username in the “Connect to server…” dialog while you're in a jam session. I recommend joining one of the existing jam sessions instead of clicking “New jam” because that's easier when getting started (if you want to run your own private jam then you'll also need to add their usernames in the Admin | Access Control menu so that they can see and join your private jam session).

Hello everyone!
I'm hoping to be able to play piano duets remotely with friends while we can't meet up because of the coronavirus. I'm not very expert with this sort of thing and can't see how to invite an individual to play, rather than have an open invitation. Maybe Jammr is not the right environment for this but I would love some help if anyone can advise me.
Thank you and enjoy the music!
Charlotte

I've been trying to make some sense of the Jammr interface. I have a MSI GS63VR 6RF laptop. I have never been able to get the onboard audio system to be stable in Jammr. It crashes very quickly with horrible audio quality. So, I decided to try connecting to Jammr through my Universal Audio Apollo 8 system connected to my laptop via the Thunderbolt 3 interface. This seemed to work very well on my end but the players on the other end says it's way too load, distorted and crackly. I looked all over for a way to turn down the output to Jammr but there's no user interface I can find to do that.

In Jammr settings I set the output device to be “Speakers (Universal Audio Thunderbolt WDM) and the audio system to be ”Windows WASAPI"

How do I confirm that I have the correct and, hopefully, best setup and confirm the levels going into Jammr?

Thanks

They may be referring to the fact that jammr is live but not real-time. This page explains how jammr works:

There is a guide to jamming successfully here: https://forum.jammr.net/topic/1724/
