Hey All,

Found this on the internet today. Seems like it could be a fun way for Songfighters to collaborate:

"Play music together over the Internet as if in the same room."

I seem to remember seeing a company doing something like this, but you had to purchase their hardware. I guess the internet has improved since then. No special hardware, just a quality internet connection and a free account.

If anyone wants to try this out sometime, let me know.

Sounds interesting. I'm skeptical that it can work. They say in their FAQ that it should very likely work if you're within 500 miles of the other people, and if you're ISP isn't routing your traffic in a crazy way. I'm not sure what you could do about it if your ISP is not routing your traffic efficiently. There might just be some people for whom this doesn't work. It would be fun to try out though.

There's also Ninjam: http://www.cockos.com/ninjam

From the same guys who do Reaper. Never tried it myself. Might be a dead project though...

Seems like you and Ken would be ideal guinea pigs for us.

Good point. If it can work over three blocks, it should work anywhere else...
