Jammr may work for you for playing together. There's no latency but the other player's track plays at a different time in real time but the same time on your machine. You can adjust interval delay but if you use Zoom and not the Jammr chat window to communicate with your student then you'll need to mute Zoom when you're both playing together. You can make ...

Have you tried using enabling Zoom's "preserve original sound"? I thought this was exactly what it's supposed to be for.

You're probably looking at something like VST Connect which comes in Pro & Performer flavours & several platforms, Mac/PC/iOS. I've never used it myself but I was around at Steinberg when the betas were first being tested & reports were good.

For audio, I have enjoyed successful band rehearsals spanning a small country. I used (free) Jamulus internet rehearsal software with a cheap low-latency audio interface (Focusrite or similar). Our round trip latency including the network and audio interfaces was under 40ms, maybe closer to 30ms. I set up my own "central server" for the clients to connect to,...

Zoom's "advanced" setting to preserve original sound might be useful for music lessons, but I have not tried it. If it works for you, it might save you and your students some configuration wrestling. JamKazam has a rich user interface and many users, but the developer seems to have it on a back burner. Support is mainly user-to-user, via either global chat ...

Unfortunately the 'packet-switching' basis of Internet communication guarantees a packet of data will get there (just about) but makes no promises about WHEN it will arrive. Buffering techniques allow the illusion of a constant data stream, but it WILL be delayed. Maybe by little enough to allow a two-way conversation without annoying gaps. But a ...

All the responses have value, here is my response. I have been taking taking lessons over the internet for 3 years now. My teacher and I have tried Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Webx. Our hardware is MacOS (my end) with a Logitech HD camera. It attaches via an HDMI port. My teacher has an older model Windows machine, and uses the same camera I do. I ...

There is no such thing an "no latency". That depends on a lot of factors like relative distance and bandwidth of service. For example if you are in the US trying to jam with someone on the other side of the world I think physics puts a 0.5 sec (or 1.0 sec) latency. That isn't too bad during a phone call but if you're playing fast music you will fall out ...

The recommended products from my music school (which closed its doors and told all teachers to go online with their students) include FaceTime, Zoom, WhatsApp, and Skype. Unfortunately, which one works best for you depends on the connection data rate available at your end and at the student's end, so there is no guaranteed best for all situations.

I’m 41 and have been learning for just over a year. I’ve taken off my tapes but found that over time my finger placement starts to become less accurate. I can hear the difference but struggle to pinpoint where I need to place my fingers. I put a black tape at 1st and 3rd positions and that seems to do the trick for me. I’d rather spend the time learning a ...
