SOUNDJACK.EU - Make music together 100's of miles away

Change hearts with your voice
Zoom and other video conference programs put an emphasis on video quality and call stability. The better the video quality and stability - the more delay is built into one's internet connection.
For the past year, music departments at schools and Universities have been creating "real time" low-delay audio connections within 500 miles for individual lessons and larger groups by requiring the following:
1. Turning off wifi and connecting your router with an ethernet cable and for most laptops an ethernet adapter to your late model, or older but fast computer. If you do not have a late model, or fast computer; sells a fast music box (FMB) with software built in that works very well. See opening page upper right corner click on tab Donation/FMB.
I-pads, and smart phones have too much delay and do not work well to make music remotely - however, they can control a fast music box without a computer.
2. Using WIRED, open-ear, non-noise cancelling headphones to hear your distant partner(s) and your own voice at the same time.
3. Employing free software from to select for each connection the optimum ratio of quality and stability / versus delay.
4. Using a (muted) free video conferencing software in conjunction with soundjack.eu. I recommend . Click on "see it in action now". No download is required to establish a meeting nor do invitees need to download the software - invited participants need only give permission to open their camera and microphone - easy!
