Playing live with others, remotely
#1
Since early 2020 I've been successfully playing live with others - but not just those I used to play with in the same room.  Our groups now include people hundreds of km away.  We do this using Jamulus - which is free.  To get worthwhile results you need to get an external sound card (e.g. focusrite) and connect your device direct to your broadband (no wifi) but with some fine tuning it works really well for us, even with larger groups. 

So what's new?  Up until recently Jamulus was only available for Windows or iOS - but you can now install it on Android.  As long as you can plug in a "OTG Ethernet" adapter, you can use the internal mic and wired headphones just fine - even with a smartphone.

Combined with tablets connected to Mobilesheets over the Internet and shared set lists, we've found it a great source of enjoyment.  Some people play acoustic intsruments, others electric - or even sampled.  We've used it with various genres from classical to pop and traditional.

You can use free public servers - and risk (or welcome) others dropping in - but we use our own private servers hosted on Amazon Web Services.
 
Jamulus + Mobilesheets have truly kept us going through lockdown!
