  2. The Ould Sod Virtual Session happening again on Zoom tonight, Tuesday, Aug 4th starting at 6 PM Pacific time! https://us04web.zoom.us/j/6193681854?pwd=eXd3L2ZEeWNnMDBZYVI0RkJ2c3Vudz09 Meeting ID: 619 368 1854 Password: session
  3. Yes, if you use the same fingerings on a Bb/F on an instrument with the same relative pitch layout as a 3-row C/G as far as the third row, you're just effectively playing the tune down one tone. So if you are playing a tune that would be in the key of G on a C/G what you would hear is the same tune in the key of F. I have a Lachenal Bb/F that use for playing with flat sets of Uilleann pipes tuned in C (standard pitch would be D) and I just play exactly as I would on my C/G. Similarly, I have an A/E for playing with flat sets of Uilleann pipes tuned in B.
  4. Sold a looong time ago...
  5. Zoom's own article seems to imply they are never peer-to-peer: https://blog.zoom.us/cloud-based-and-peer-peer-meetings/

  7. I've been hosting "The Ould Sod Virtual Session" on Zoom every Tuesday starting at 6:00 PM Pacific time night since mid-March. All players of Traditional Irish Music are welcome to join. Please visit: http://appcordions.com/zoom for the latest Zoom meeting link. “The Ould Sod” is the San Diego neighborhood pub where I’ve been co-hosting a session every Tuesday night for over 20 years. Of course sessions in person are on hold for the duration, so we're all looking for ways to have some music together. Here’s how it works: Anyone on the meeting may volunteer to start a set. I mute everyone’s microphones except the person playing the set. The person plays their set, and everyone else can hear them and play along. Because only one mike is un-muted, you hear only the person who started the set and yourself. When done with the set, I will un-mute all the microphones (for those who have allowed the meeting host to un-mute). At that point anyone can pick a new set to play and I do the same muting setup as before for the next set leader. Hope to see you at the "session"!
  8. Bandwidth isn't as much a problem for as is number of hops between users and if the system is peer-to-server (Zoom) or peer-to-peer (JamKazam). I believe that Zoom mostly runs peer-to-server, so there is additional latency added with each user's stream going to a Zoom server, then to each client. In JamKazam, it's all peer to peer, so it's entirely dependent on the ping latency between the nodes, plus the local audio system and internet connection latency and jitter. JamKazam doesn't require much bandwidth when using just audio, so shared connections at a local cable switch may not impact the overall latency, but if there are many hops between peers, it adds up. I have wondered if Zoom runs peer-to-peer if there are just two users on a meeting, but not sure.
  9. New demo video with improved voice EQ. I found the voice EQ in my original demo video a bit "boomy", this is better: The benefit for the whistle (would be true for concertina as well) is primarily provided by the compressor, which limits the maximize volume and provides a more comfortable listening experience to others on the conference.
  10. I’m playing around with the EQ and Reverb settings to dial the vocal low end boom back just a bit from what's on the demo video. That’s the beauty of the setup, very easy to make tiny tweaks and save them as presets. Really, it’s the compressor that makes a big difference, particularly when playing instruments.
  11. Quick demo video: Of course, all aspects of the compression, EQ, and reverb can be adjusted to your own preference.
  12. I meant “inherent in Zoom” to include both the client and their server-based service infrastructure, not just the client software. More in comparison to a pure peer-to-peer system like JamKazam where low latency group play is quite possible up to about 1000 miles distance with ideal hardware configuration and network connections.
  13. Sorry, typo, it should work just fine feeding audio to a Mac or Windows computer line-in audio input... fixed it in the original post.
