Incorporated | NINJAM NINJAM [about] [download] [public servers] [music made with NINJAM] [NINJAM forum] What is NINJAM? NINJAM is open source (GPL) software to allow people to make real music together via the Internet. Every participant can hear every other participant. Each user can also tweak their personal mix to his or her liking. NINJAM is cross-platform, with clients available for Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows. NINJAM uses compressed audio which allows it to work with any instrument or combination of instruments. Since the inherent latency of the Internet prevents true realtime synchronization of the jam2, and playing with latency is weird (and often uncomfortable), NINJAM provides a solution by making latency (and the weirdness) much longer. Latency in NINJAM is measured in measures, and that's what makes it interesting. The NINJAM client records and streams synchronized intervals of music between participants. How does NINJAM work? Download NINJAM A server setup guide is here. Additional NINJAM downloads:

Best Music Software for Chromebooks & BYOD Schools | Midnight Music Help! Which software can I use with mixed devices or Chromebooks? In the past few years, a large number of schools worldwide have decided to adopt a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach to technology for students meaning that students can choose to use a Mac laptop, a Windows laptop, an iPad or an Android tablet. At the same time, a number of schools have selected Chromebooks – which only allow the user to access resources and software that are online and “in the cloud” – as the technology device of choice for their students. And still other schools find themselves with a variety of technology devices – perhaps iPads in elementary school, Windows laptops for senior students, Chromebooks for middle school and a Mac lab down the hall! What’s the best approach in this situation? The solution is to use cloud-based software and interactive websites. What is cloud-based software?
