This page is an unofficial collection links to Jacktrip (and variants) download-sites, documentation, tips and techniques.  Contact me (Mike O’Connor) HERE if you find errors, updates, additions, etc.


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

      • Excellent University of Minnesota guide to sharing audio through Zoom — an easy way to share a Jacktrip session through Zoom (a concert or recital for example).
      • Ian Howell’s – excellent documentation for Soundjack — but also excellent overall discussion of fundamentals of online music in general — highly recommended for all audiences.
      • 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> “
