Downloads

This is a collection of downloads to Jacktrip and other systems that have Jacktrip heritage, either direct or indirect.  In all cases there is a strong focus on managing latency and sound quality.  Thus, these are aimed performing musicians who strive to play/rehearse/perform in real time.  All of these systems are evolving rapidly during the Covid era.

Setup guides – for other stuff

      • Omar Costa Hamido – Music101 server on AWS EC2
      • Miller Puckette’s tip on how to install Pd on a linux server – “the Pd community site has “deb” files here:  https://puredata.info/downloads/pure-data/releases/0.51-1 – so you don’t really have to compile pd on flavors of linux that use apt-get for installing software.  I think this is thanks to Iohannes Zmoelnig.  To install Pd, just download the “deb” file and run:  apt-get install <filename> “

Tips and techniques

      • A series of 5 short videos introducing and demonstrating Jacktrip – click here (Michael Dessen)
      • A comprehensive Jacktrip video series with a Mac focus – click here (Jan Stoltenberg)
      • Jacktrip Startup Guide — helpful tips when QjackCtl is throwing error messages.  Jacktrip startup sequence v3 (PDF – Mike O’Connor)
      • Configuring, starting and running a multi-client Jacktrip server with per-channel mixing – click here (Mike O’Connor)
      • “Audio Routes” capabilities in Ableton Live (useful for things like sharing Jacktrip audio with Zoom and other audio-routing puzzlers).  Click here for description, LOTS of examples and link to the download.  [Installation tip: drag the Audio Routes folder into the User Library and launch examples from there – dragging the .als examples into Live tends to crash Live.]
