To know more about how Jamulus is being used, and what people think of it so far!
What have you MAINLY been using Jamulus for?
Jams with random strangers
Jams with musicians I know
Rehearsals with my band, choir or group
To teach music
To find/audition potential new band members
If you run a server in "public mode" (register it in the Central Server), why is that?
I like the idea of being able to jam with strangers
I can't set up a private server for technical reasons
If you run a server in "private mode" (give other musicians your network address), why is that?
I don't want people other than my friends / bandmates playing with me
I can't find a public server near me that's fast enough
What are the most common issues you have when using Jamulus?
Latency and sound quality (sound breaking up, going out of time with others)
Feedback or echo
Other hardware or software problems (no sound, noise or volume issues)
Musicians not co-operating, behaving badly or strangely
Not enough people to play with
Server problems: setting up, or getting others to connect to my server
I would describe my level of computer skills as:
Basic (I usually ask friends and family when I have problems)
Good (I can usually work most things out, but I'm not that confident)
Advanced (I am a programmer, or am involved in computers for my work)
How easy was it to understand how Jamulus worked?
Difficult (had to find more information, read documentation, ask on the forums, etc.)
A little tricky (needed a bit of work, but I worked it out after a while)
Easy (installed it and got going almost immediately)
What's the hardest thing to understand abut Jamulus?
Connecting my computer to my instrument(s) so that it all works properly
Configuring my sound card or sound software for Jamulus
The meaning of words used by Jamulus (for example "delay" or "buffers")
When you click the connection button, how many servers do you typically see?
Less than 10
Between 10 and 20
More than I can count
Of the servers you can see listed, how many have dark green ping times (less than 30ms)?
Usually very few, if any
Usually enough to give me a choice
Lots - I use the number of musicians to decide which to join
When you connect to a server, is it:
Usually OK (I can play with others and the latency/sound quality isn't a problem)
Sometimes OK (it varies from day to day)
Hardly ever OK (I feel lucky if I'm able to play with others)
If the session performance is bad, do you feel you know what to do to improve it?
