We cannot accurately predict the latency of your audio gear. To proceed, you must run an audio loopback test. Click button below to do this.
You have completed the loopback test successfully. Click Next to continue.
You have adjusted your gear speed settings successfully. Click Next to continue.
In this step, you will set up your live performance audio tracks.

Instructions

  • Edit the first audio track using the "update" link to set it up as an instrumental or vocal track as you like.
  • If desired, add other audio or MIDI tracks for other instruments or vocals.
In this step, you may set up a microphone to use for voice chat if needed.

Instructions

If you have set up a mic in step 2 for your instrument or voice, click Next to move forward.

Otherwise, follow the instructions to set up a voice chat mic.

Select Voice Chat Option

Use Music Microphone

I am already using a microphone to capture my vocal or instrumental music, so I can talk with other musicians using that microphone

Use Chat Microphone

I am not using a microphone for acoustic instruments or vocals, so use the input selected below for voice chat during my sessions

In this step, you will ensure that any direct monitoring feature on your audio interface is turned off.

Instructions

  • Find the Direct Monitoring control on your audio interface.
  • If a button or switch, set it to off position.
  • If a knob, turn it so 100% of audio is from your computer, and 0% is from inputs.
  • If audio is poor try tweaking your settings
When you have fully turned off the direct monitoring control (if any) on your audio interface, please click the Play button below. If you hear the audio clearly, then your settings are correct, and you can move ahead to the next step. If you use your audio interface for recording, and use the direct monitoring feature for recording, please note that you will need to remember to turn this feature off every time that you use the JamKazam service.

Congratulations! You are now ready to create, join, and play in online sessions with other JamKazam musicians. Have fun and thanks for joining us!

Fetching your scheduled sessions...

Please select a genre for your session:

A genre will help other musicians more easily find your session if they are interested in a particular style of music like classical, jazz, rock or bluegrass.

Please enter a name for your session:

Give your session a name that will help other musicians see at a quick glance if it's interesting to them.

Please enter a description for your session:

We strongly recommend listing the names of any specific pieces of music you plan to play in your session, both so that other musicians can decide to join you, and also so that they can practice a bit to be prepared.

Upload music notation for your session (optional):

If you're playing a piece of music that you wrote, you may upload sheet music files that other musicians can use to learn/play. Please do not upload sheet music that violates anyone else's copyright.

To invite specific friends, click the Choose Friends button and select them in the dialog box, or just start typing your friends' names and select them from the popup menu. If you choose to let other interested musicians join you, you will have the opportunity to approve them when they RSVP.

What language will be spoken?

What will you play?


What other instruments/parts will you need?

To let other musicians know which parts you'll need in the session, check the instrumental and vocal parts that you need, the number of each, and the desired skill level of the musicians you're comfortable playing with.
This is a good option to choose when following normal legal conventions works - i.e. session participants agree that whoever holds the copyright on the music being performed maintains all ownership rights and interests in the music. Use the following link for full legal details of this choice: https://www.jamkazam.com/session-legal-policies/standard.

I agree that intellectual property ownership of any musical works created during this session shall be governed by the terms of the Creative Commons CC BY-NC-SA license in accordance with the JamKazam Terms of Service.

How will you handle musician access?

This is a good option when you have invited some musicians who are likely to join you, but you still want to let other musicians request to join your session while it's in progress. Musicians can't just wander in, but they can ask to join while you are in session, and you can approve or not.

How will you handle fan access?

Fans can listen to you while you're playing in session, and can text chat with each other while listening.

Instructions

  • Check that computer is connected to router using Ethernet cable.
  • Click Start Network Test button.
  • View test results.

Ensure that your computer is connected to your home router using an Ethernet cable rather than using Wi-Fi wireless access. If necessary, find or purchase a long Ethernet cable, up to 100 ft.

Application Preferences

If you use JamKazam mostly to play with others in real-time, we recommend that you check this box to allow the JamKazam application to start each time you start your computer. It will run quietly in the background, and you won't notice it, but it will collect critical latency data periodically to help you connect with other musicians, and it will also upload/download any recordings you make in sessions.

If you are having problems with the network test or not hearing audio from others and need to configure Port Forwarding in your router, check this box.

You can specify any port you like, but we recommend an even number in the range including 1026-49150 to avoid conflicts with other programs. When configuring Port Forwarding in your router, be sure to open this port along with the next 10. For example, if this field is 12000, then in your router, forward ports 12000-12010 to your computer's IP address.

Files that belong to you are shown below. You can see if they are currently on your system, and in the case of Recordings, if they have been uploaded to the server yet.

Adjust Gear Speed

If you are failing the I/O test on your audio interface, or if your audio sounds bad, try selecting a slower audio processing speed. Your goal is to pass the I/O test and hear good audio, while sacrificing as little speed as possible.

If adjusting the settings above still doesn't work, you may try experimenting with the Frame and Buffer settings below to see if you can achieve better results using these controls.

The master mix is the audio mix used for both recordings and live broadcasts of session audio. Changes to the master mix are global, so there is only one master mix for the session. The master mix does not include controls for the metronome because the metronome is not recorded or broadcast. Any user in the session may use the volume and pan controls below to make adjustments to the master mix for everyone in the session.
