Connect to studios using only a web browser
Today we are launching the ability to connect to studios using nothing more than a web browser! This requires no special hardware or software downloads. It works using Chrome, Edge, Safari or Firefox on most modern devices, including Chromebooks, mobile phones, iPads, etc.
Whenever you join a studio using a web browser on a computer, you will see a new “Use this browser” option to connect audio. Just select that, choose which audio interfaces you’d like to use, and select "Join Room.” If you are on a mobile device, it will skip the first step for you.
Not all browsers are the same! Some allow you to choose both your input and output audio interface, while others will only allow you to select a microphone. Use your operating system’s audio settings to control audio output for the latter. We currently recommend Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge for the best experience.
Audio quality and latency using your browser will not be as good as the JackTrip App or bridge devices. But it will still be way better than what is available from most other online collaboration platforms. Also most Virtual Studio features will still work great, including Soundscapes mixing and DSP, volume meters and controls, recording and live broadcasting!
New AI music generator beta
Looking for that missing sound to bring the band together? Try generating it yourself!
With this release, we’re excited to launch a beta of our AI Music Generator. You can find this in the bottom right-hand corner of the studio room. As a studio admin, you can use the prompt to enter your favorite styles, instruments, or genre to produce a machine-generated musical accompaniment.
In “Sample” mode, you’ll be able to generate small snippets of audio that match the prompt you’re looking for. Once you’ve generated a sample you like and want to play along with, you can go over to “Loop” mode to replay it for endless jamming.
Additionally, “Loop” mode will also let you create a continuous stream that adapts to your prompt in real-time. This lets you build a loop that will seamlessly transition between different styles.
Try it out and let us know what you think!
