USBc TO ETHERNET
USB TO ETHERNET
three stages of FINE TUNING
A: JITTER BUFFER
Good starting point on "auto"
You can manually adjust;
eg take "auto" off and push the SERVER one up a little bit
You have two choices;
A: the LOCAL buffer on YOUR COMPUTER (receiving the sound from the server) needs increased; if you have a poor download / if THEY are crackling.
B: the buffer on the SERVER (receiving the sound from you) needs increased; if you have a poor upload / if YOU are crackling.
REMEMBER THE COMPROMISE IS
break up vs increased delay;
Increase the buffer and you reduce pops and clicks but at the cost of delay.
Enable small network buffers
UN-TICK, if you are in an older server that will not support small network buffers, if you hear;
1. many clicks and pops
2. or you can not hear anybody
C: 2.67; If you have a good interface and driver.
Lastly, change to 5.33 if the above solutions still are not good enough.
• "usb audio interface*" eg: Scarlett solo (see photo left)
*DO NOT have "direct monitor" selected
• "usb ETHERNET adapter" if your computer has not got one.
PLEASE NOTE: as you open the app for the first time it will say "this application is not apple approved" (the software causes no problems) at that point open:
1•Apple system preferences
2•Security & Privacy
3•Click "open anyway"
MUST BE ethernet
ETHERNET CONNECTION TO INTERNET NOT WIFI
Listen to yourself and other from the jamulus mix
(from the server) NOT direct monitor.
This helps your brain adjust to any latency
AND you hear what everyone hears, you will naturally compensate for a little latency (up to 50ms, or even more if you try)
Use headphones as is better
JAMULUS BASIC SET UP
open and fill out "MY PROFILE" (under VIEW tab)
open PREFERENCES window (under JAMULUS tab)
set your device choices: "in usb device/out: Built-in output"
set new client level to: 100 (or "0" if you want privacy, but this can be rude, so it's better to make your own server)
set audio channels to: mono
set audio quality to: normal
tick - display channel levels
open CONNECTION SET UP (under VIEW tab)
If you wish to play along without being heard tick "mute stream"
It's best to run it off another device
Hi. Hope you can join me for the Jam! 😁.
In the Jamulus: “GENRE JAZZ” (& rock) room we play originals and we DO play covers, but in an original way. Don’t expect to play, or hear a song, the way you knew it 😜.
If you do stay (awesome!); make sure you're muted and ONLY unmute
if you want to play along.
Everything in Jamulus and therefore in this room can
and probably will be recorded or streamed.
PLEASE NOTE: When you join I may be live streaming a song, so if you can mute yourself until you catch the key then play along, or wait till I’ve finished and say hello.
Be nice to each other, keep it cool and JAM! 😘
My PUBLIC SERVER
Can be found in the "Genre Jazz"
and the Server name is "MrPianoManOnline"
Or look out for me in another session "MrPianoManOnline"
If you want to set up a closed session email me for a private server address:
