Free Webinar Feb27 hosted by CPDL: Introduction to Making Music Remotely Using Jamulus

The Choral Public Domain Library (CPDL) presents an introduction to using the Jamulus software for near real-time singing. Jamulus is a software package that allows musicians in different locations to make music simultaneously as an ensemble.

We will cover an introduction to Jamulus, a comparison with other leading solutions (JackTrip Virtual Studio, Soundjack), tips from rehearsing a choir and hosting a sing-along via Jamulus, and have an opportunity for Q+A with our panel of speakers. We will also have a Jamulus server configured to allow a limited number of spots for people to try it out in a small group to see how the latency feels for making music together. The webinar will be held via Zoom; advance RSVP required via the link below.

When: February 27, 2021

   1pm EST (New York, USA)
  10am PST (San Francisco, USA)
  19h  CET (Paris, France)

RSVP: required via this link


  • Nick Weininger (singer, International Orange Chorale of San Francisco; composer; software engineering consultant).
  • Jace Wittig (Assoc. Artistic Director at Cantabile Youth Singers of Silicon Valley; Founder/Music Director for Gaude, Inc.; and former Interim Music Director and singer, Chanticleer).
  • Ronald Cohen (Board member and singer, Slavyanka; singer, Tactus)

If you wish to try the Jamulus server that we will have available at the end of the workshop, you will need to prepare in advance to run the desktop software and connect to the Jamulus computer:

  • Install the Jamulus client software in advance (available at no cost via for Mac or Windows, plus information for those running Linux).
  • A physical, wired connection (such as ethernet) from your computer to your router or modem and simialarly a wired connection from the router or modem to the Internet. Wireless connections aren't fast enough for the Jamulus computer to properly keep all participants in sync with each other.
  • Non-wireless earbuds or headset, with built-in microphone or external microphone.
