JackTrip Virtual Studio Pricing

Note: subscription pricing for fully-managed cloud audio servers is scheduled to begin January 1, 2022. Until then, the service is available free for groups of up to 10 musicians. Please contact sales@jacktrip.org for larger groups.

JackTrip Virtual Studio provides access to state-of-the art cloud audio servers for a fee. These virtual rooms leverage cutting edge technology to deliver the best audio performance possible.

We offer monthly subscription plans that enable you to only pay for what you use. We measure this using musician/minutes and musician/hours, where one musician/minute is used when one musician is connected to the server for one minute. Similarly, one musician/hour is used when one musician is connected to the server for one hour.

For example: with a bank of 100 musician/hours, you could have one musician connect to your server for 100 hours, or have 100 musicians connected for 1 hour. By charging based on musician/minutes and musician/hours, costs are directly related to (a) the size of your group, and (b) how much time you spend using the service.

There is no cost for connecting to a server with your musician- only the owner of the server will be charged.

Choosing the Right Size Room

Whenever you start an audio server, you will be asked to verify the desired room size (see available room sizes below). Each size room is able to accommodate a range of total musicians. You'll pay per minute for the number of musicians connected, or for the room's minimum number of musicians, whichever is greater.

Make sure to choose the correct size room for your group! If the room is too small, it won't accommodate all of your musicians. If the room is too big, you'll pay for unused space.

Number of Musicians
Room Sizes Minimum Maximum
Extra Small 2 10
Small 10 20
Medium 20 40
Large 40 80
Extra Large 80 180
Double Extra Large 180 240
Triple Extra Large 240 360
Quadruple Extra Large 360 480

What if I Have My Own Server?

JackTrip Virtual Studio Servers can be created on-demand by clicking "Create Server" in the top-right of the Audio Servers page. However, another less common option is to maintain your own "Unmanaged" audio server. There is no cost for running your own audio server.
