If you're happy using a public server, then you don't need to set up a private server.

If you have one performer connected to a server, they can play whatever they like, regardless of the beats per minute or beats per interval settings.

If you have two performers, they must play at the same speed and at a multiple of the beats per interval.

If you have more than two performers, the beats per interval becomes increasingly important.

If you expect harmony to work, you need to stick religiously to the interval and have your chord progressions worked out in advance.

See

for a picture of three performers and ninbot recording the session; you're all likely to be one the same number of intervals up and down to the server.

Hi,

If you want to play realtime-like, I suggest you try Soundjack:
http://www.soundjack.eu/
If you want to get really geeky, one of the participants can send his audio over a regular telephoneline using a hybrid. The benefit is that latency is approx only 10mS. Would probably work very well for flute, since it's mainly in the midrange of the audioband.

Between what two points? I've had telephony latency in the multiple seconds...

On a landline, inside one country?

Not inside one country, but then on NINJAM, I'm usually jamming with people from Asia, Europe and the US rather than everyone being in the UK. That's why I was asking between what two points.

I guess Soundjack could be used to connect multiple NINJAM Servers together too, as well as sharing multiple cams.
