A fellow bandmate and I are trying to test JK to see if it will be a viable alternative to in-person rehearsals. I play bass, he plays drums. We also have guitar, keys, vocals and horns. But we want to make sure he and I are locked in before we bring in the other members.
So far, we have everything working. I hear him, he hears me.
Total latency is right around 25-26 ms. However, he is hearing me somewhat behind him and feels a constant need to slow down.
Here are our particulars:
Computer: Dell Precision laptop, Intel i7 processor, Windows 7 Pro.
Interface: Focusrite Saffire Pro 40, firewire
Internet: Time Warner Cable, 118 Mbps download, 12 Mbps upload
Computer: Apple iMAc 2010
Interface: Presonus Firestudio Mobile, firewire,
Internet: Time Warner Cable, 100+ Mbps download, 10 Mbps upload
Jamkazam is giving us the following info:
My Processor: 0%
My interface latency: 2.9 ms (buffer size of 32, works fine no pops)
His Processor: 30%
His interface latency: 8.8 ms
Internet (both of us) : Approx 15-16 ms.
I'm guessing that the total of 25 ms is the sum of our internet latency plus his interface latency, since it's the slower of the two: 16+9=25 Is this correct?
Does anyone have any ideas on how we can get our latency down to 20 ms or below?
Both of us are connected to our wireless routers directly with cat 6 cable. We have tried bypassing the routers and going straight into the cable modems but it did not make a difference.
Is there any way to decrease his interface buffer size in Jamkazam?
We both are very enthusiastic about getting this working but we need to shave off about 5 ms or so to make it comfortable.
Thanks for your input.
