hi all,

taking a break, i tried this out on ChatGPT.  not bad!


what options exist for high quality low latency group audio over the internet?

There are a few options for high quality, low latency group audio over the internet. Some popular choices include:

  1. Voice over IP (VoIP) software like Zoom, Skype, and Google Meet which are easy to use and provide good quality audio for group calls.
  2. TeamSpeak and Mumble are VoIP software primarily designed for gaming, but also offer low latency voice communication for groups.
  3. Professional audio software like JACK Audio and ASIO can be used for low latency audio over the internet, but may require more technical expertise to set up and use.
  4. Some online games like Fortnite and Minecraft also have built-in voice chat functionality that allows for low latency group audio communication.
  5. Some other commercial service like Amazon chime, Microsoft teams, Jitsi, etc.

It's worth noting that the quality and latency of the audio will depend on various factors such as the internet connection of all participants, and the specific software or platform being used.

where does Jacktrip fit in those categories?

JackTrip is a software that allows for low-latency, high-quality audio transmission over the internet. It is primarily designed for use in music and audio production, and is often used for remote collaborations and performances.

JackTrip falls into the category of professional audio software, like JACK Audio and ASIO, that can be used for low latency audio over the internet. It requires a bit more technical expertise to set up and use than consumer-oriented VoIP software like Zoom or Skype, but offers much lower latency and higher audio quality. It also support multi-channel audio stream, which is a feature that other consumer-oriented software does not have.

It's worth noting that JackTrip uses the JACK Audio Connection Kit (JACK) as the underlying audio server and network protocol, which allows it to integrate with other JACK-compatible software, such as digital audio workstations (DAWs) and effects processors.
