3900 miles is an extreme distance for low-latency audio, but with strong internet connections at both ends, vocalist Kristin Berardi and I were able to get our latency down to about 50ms using FarPlay (equivalent to playing with someone 50ft away from you if the sound is traveling through air), and make some real music together. The longest distance I’ve ever tried — and it worked!
Did a FarPlay session with my friend the superb guitarist / composer Gilad Hekselman. He was on Windows, where low-latency audio is a little bit more complicated than on Mac or Linux. Still, it worked perfectly. We played All The Things You Are and Solar and challenged the connection by focusing on simultaneous contrapuntal lines. Super fun.
My brilliant friend Sophia Bacelar has her Carnegie Hall debut this Wednesday & asked me to guest on a song. She’s in NJ right now 46 miles away from me, so we rehearsed with my new low-latency app FarPlay instead of schlepping. If you like Piazzolla, you’re in for a treat.
