Virtual Studio is a commercial service operated by JackTrip Labs, a Delaware public-benefit corporation that is an affiliate of the JackTrip Foundation.
Sing with your chorus, or jam with your band without leaving home. Virtual Studio is a tool for musicians that enables them to produce music together over common Internet connections. It delivers high quality sound with minimal time delay, so that musicians can keep the beat and stay in harmony. It can make it sound like you are in the same room next to each other, even when you are actually hundreds of miles apart.
The Virtual Studio web application offers an easy-to-use interface for assembling your group, and connecting everyone together using a JackTrip audio hub server. It can also be used to manage our Virtual Studio devices, or any custom built devices that use our Raspberry Pi disk images.
The Virtual Studio service was originally developed for a chorus of about 250 members, and is currently being used by groups of over 100. While proper scalability testing is ongoing, our initial tests indicate that it can support hundreds of musicians performing together. When it comes to scale, we haven't found anything that even comes close.
JackTrip managed cloud audio servers are available free through the end of June 2021. Beginning July 1, 2021, we will charge using metered, monthly subscription plans that enable you to pay only for the on-demand resources that you actually need to use.
As a non-profit organization, our goal is the wide availability of this service so that musicians can easily collaborate over the Internet, especially during this pandemic.
