Brand new user – just had my first JackTrip session.
I have all the recommended stats: the sound card, ASIO drivers, wired headphones and mic. The latency on my end was measure between 5 ms and 12 ms. My teacher, who also lives in Brooklyn NY (I think he’s about 11 miles away), had similar latency, but he uses a mac.
The session was pretty cool, and I love the features of JackTrip. The metronome is awesome. I need to educate myself on my Behringer soundcard and maybe electronic audio in general.
One thing that could’ve been better is the consistency of latency. It wasn’t bad. My teacher has pretty high standards and patience for this sort of thing, and was satisfied with the results, but the consistency could’ve been better. The latency drifted a little bit here and there.
We did clapping exercises to a metronome whether ascertaining if we could have a lesson on JackTrip. It was mostly good, but occasionally the latency would drift a little bit and the clapping/metronome wasn’t spot on for a second or two before correcting itself.
Now that I have a functional studio that works, how do I fine tune things to make them even better? I saw a post that mentioned different buffer sizes. How do I set those? Is there a document that explains what things can be fiddled with to improve latency?
We’re willing to sacrifice (a lot of) quality for latency.
