Live PA set over the net?
February 4, 2010 at 7:15 am #21831
Science and I were thinking this would be possible for us to do a live pa set together so I’ll discuss what I’ve found and if anyone else has some ideas shoot them at us.
I found a couple different software programs
ejamming (costs cash for service)
ninjam (free but delays a measure set at a specific bpm given on the server)
llcon (seems good and easy but haven’t tried it)
jacktrip (mac and linux only)
So science you might get ninjam and llcon, and we can have a go and see if the audio quality is any better than Skype.
The idea is that science would do half of the project and I would do the other half (or any combination of members doing a set for that matter) we would stream our audio to each others computer then put it up on the radio station as a show. In theory this should work, it’s just finding the right way to do it. We tried Skype, but I don’t think the audio quality is good enough except maybe to monitor each other in the headphones. the ideal would be to have a signal that is at least 128kbps to retain the audio quality so that it is worth having.February 4, 2010 at 10:36 am #32924
after trying this I think that the ninjam might be the best way to go. The only thing is we would have to set up a private room with our own server. I don’t know much about this stuff but I’m looking into it. The ejamming is like 20 bucks a month and I wouldn’t want to spend that every month. And Science you run windows correct? So that would put the linux only apps out of the picture. I hooked up the ninjam and got it to work, the only thing is anyone can just pop in a start playing, and this is why we would need our own server and set it up for only two players. The audio also seemed ok. I could hear the bass alright. Science we should still try to see what sort of response we can get in skype though . or if anyone else is up for it for that matter .February 4, 2010 at 8:11 pm #32923
here is a videos of guys jamming in almost real time from all over the world. If anyone is interested in trying this let me know. I believe to work with synths and plugins it is important to use reaper, which cost like $60.February 5, 2010 at 8:52 pm #32920
Ok guys, I’ve got this working. Im running renoise through rewire into reaper and out of reaper into ninjam. It seems to work well. Just wondering if anyone is interested in trying to do something like this. It would be cool to practice and see how it works out. I think this would be awesome to do live shows of live pa on goddjs’s radioFebruary 6, 2010 at 7:27 pm #32921
I had the coolest time this morning jamming on ninjam.
Well guys I jammed with this for the first time this morning. I stayed up until 7:30 am jamming with a Christian brother from Germany. He was in Berlin and I was in Missouri. Theo Dege is the guys name (pronounced like T, O, Dig, Uh), and he does Christian EDM. He mentioned to me that he goes and preaches the gospel on the streets in Germany by doing techno sets in the open air. The sound quality, although it wasn’t great, was ok, and I think that it would be good enough to do a live show. There is definately a lot of practice that would be needed before doing a set, but it is a step in the right direction. We had no problems with clicks or pops or getting kicked off the server that we were on. More than two people can get on, so it is possible to have a live pa set with as many people who would like to join. There is also a mixer type interface in ninjam and would make it possible to mute adjust levels in real time. If the setup was done in the right way someone could mix the set in real time as well.February 7, 2010 at 6:13 am #32922
Here is a tutorial that I made. On the night of the 2-6-10 Dj Faith and Genesis and I rocked out some practice live pa. It was easy enough. well here is the video.
