Default Rehearsal with band over ninjam?


I have played thru ninjam with others and that was cool. Then I thought it would be great to have a rehearsal with my band and also record all so that we can analyze the recording.

Because I wanted to see how ninjam copes with latency I read how ninjam works - how data is synchronised against a distributed clock, intervals, etc.

Also have tested with my equipment - two computers connected to the same room on server. On the first computer keyboards were connected, and second computer guitar. Latency was bout 3 seconds between.

So I thought (example) - If the drummer starts to play others will hear that 3 seconds later. Then I and all others will start to play. What I play I hear that immediately, but 3 seconds later i will hear what others play. Drummer hears that 6 seconds later.

If I am right, it is impossible to play anything in a predetermined form or?

Sorry for my bad English

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I just now saw that I put in the wrong subforum - my bad.

The "latency" is the way NINJAM works - all playing is aligned to the interval, so it's in time. If you have four bars of four beats (16 BPI), every one can play in time.

Unless you're on a local network or live within a few hundred miles of each other, internet latency will be painful.
