rtpMidi – midi jamming over the (inter) net

Found a cool tool called rtpMidi, whitch enables you to play midi Eeents via bonjour over the (inter)net.

The rtpMIDI driver is a network MIDI-driver for Windows operating-systems from XP up to Windows 7.  It can be installed and used on both 32bit and 64bit systems.

Every Apple-computer based on OS X since “Tiger” (10.4) includes a network-MIDI driver as a standard system-component.  You find the configuration of this driver when using spotlight-search for “Audio-MIDI-Setup”.

The rtpMIDI-driver is compatible to the driver contained in OS X.  So you can interface your Windows PC with your Macs in the studio.

Apple has now also implemented network MIDI as part of their Core-MIDI services for iOS 4.2 as well.  So you can now do WiFi-MIDI between your iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad and a Windows PC using this driver!

rtpMIDI is implemented as a Windows service.  Therefore it is automatically starts up as soon as the system boots up.  The graphical interface that you can open to configure your network-MIDI-ports just communicates with the service.  So even if you close down the graphical interface, your ports will still continue to be available. Instructions and Software can be found here:

Just found a 12 year old movie on one of my old CDs, at that time we had no mobiles with cameras and Youtube/Facebook wasnt invented.

This video using quicktime, is “in sync” but does not display the correct image section.

This video shows the correct image section with flowplayer, but is out of sync. 😦

An interesting project, more in german at technologie review.

Since the year 2005 the Soundjack software has been the result of Alexander Carot’s musical experience and research activities in distributed music on the Internet. Once you are familiar with a few basic pinciples related to audio streaming on the Internet it will provide you the best possible quality- and delay conditions in order to play live music as shown in the videos below. However, you need to realize that the final latency depends on the physical distance, network capacities, the actual network conditions and the actual routing between the involved peers. In most cases real musical interaction is limited to physical distances below 1.000 km. It is important to understand that latency acceptance thresholds vary from player to player and furthermore decrease with an increased performance tempo. Altogether the objective judgement about the feasibility underlies a complex process. In that context Carot recommends reading the papers below or his final thesis here.

Soundjack has been optimzed for OSX and Windows, however a Linux beta version already exists.

I wasnt a big Lady gaga fan, till i saw this performance from her Mosterball Tour ,at sold out maddison quare garden on February 21, 2011 in new york,  ive found the pieces on youtube , but hopefull will get the RTL2 Monsterball cut somewhere as bittorrent.

I would say this is one of the best live performances i´ve ever seen in 10 years and she is worth any grammy and award.
