JackTrip creates the experience of being together in the same room, even when you are physically hundreds of miles apart. That's why thousands of musicians worldwide use JackTrip every day to rehearse together, perform together, and laugh together.
Many technologies optimize audio around a single speaker, making natural group conversations awkward and difficult, and music impossible to perform. Some use a peer-to-peer model, which places an enormous burden on your home Internet connection. Practically speaking, it just doesn't work for more than a few people at a time.
JackTrip Virtual Studio was originally developed to help a boys chorus with over 200 members sing together, from their own homes, during the Coronavirus pandemic. It is regularly being used by groups of over 100, and we've tested it using simulated groups of up to 500. When it comes to scale, we haven't found anything that even comes close.
JackTrip Virtual Studio uses cloud computing technology to make authentic audio collaboration possible. Our web application makes it easy to design and reserve virtual studio rooms in over 50 locations worldwide. We plan to expand this list to over 100 locations by the end of 2022!
This service is being offered free during our beta testing period, which we expect to last through the end of 2021. Beginning January 1, 2022, we plan to charge using metered, monthly subscription plans that enable you to pay only for the resources that you actually use.
JackTrip Virtual Studio is a commercial service operated by JackTrip Labs, a Delaware public-benefit corporation spun out from the JackTrip Foundation.
