A free, open source software package developed by researchers at Stanford University enables real-time sound streaming, allowing musicians to perform together online in real time.
JackTrip can reduce latency from one geographical location to another to less than the 25 milliseconds that can be perceived by human listeners. It offers low-latency, bidirectional, uncompressed audio streaming while ensuring high-fidelity, accurate sound.
The software has been modified since the pandemic to work over the basic Internet connections between homes and to accommodate larger ensembles.
Said Stanford’s Chris Chafe, “With JackTrip, it’s been great getting to jam again in real time, just as if we were right in the same room.”
