Using Skype For Online Band Practice

Alright, check this one. I've found a way using skype to conduct an online band practice. what you do is plug the instrument into you mic jack on the computer (you'll need a converter for the plug, big to small or you can get a small to big if you have a speaker cord or something). Note: in my experience, electric instruments also need to go though an amp, using the headphone jack on the amp to go to the computer. acoustic seems not to, but i'm not sure. anyways, you do a conferance call between the band members (or you could just do a regular phone call for 1 on 1) and then jam. there doesn't seem to be any lag that i have noticed so far. the quality isn't terrific but its still ok. i personally see this as having a lot of potential, jamming with people you don't know, like chat room style, i don't know. just, potential. i suggest that you people start trying it out adn finding better ways to do it so the quality is better and hey, this is still only beta, it can only get better.!

I really cant believe that because I do alot of my podcasts on skype and i have some of the fastest internet connections between me and the users im connected to and there is still a lag. Like if someone on the other end plays a beat and I start freestyling to it. It will sound good to me but they will get a lag back and that doesn't work out for practicing... Doubt it!

I take vocal lessons online via webcam. My vocal/performance coach lives in Norh Hollywood and i live in Tucson,Az. Works great for me. If things are choppy or slow you just have to hang-up and call again, just like a cell phone call if the connection is bad.

That sounds really interesting. Thanks for providing detailed information on the process. It certainly works for vocal lessons too.
