What is imujam?
imujam is a website that allow you to create and share music for everyone and everywhere.
Through creating musical videos, you can play with several musicians wherever they are in the world. The videos superimpose themselves to create a new one which gather all the musicians.
To create a Jam, you’ll need to be registered on the website. Then you’ll record yourself while playing with the webcam and the mic on your computer. You’ll be able to create a video, then other jammers might play on it. Or you can start recording on an existing jam.

How do we deal with latency ?
First, your latency is automatically analyzed by imujam. This is indicated at the bottom right of your screen when you participate in a jam. It is located in a small module called "latency" under the recording window where your webcam appears. If despite the automatic adjustment you find that there is still latency during the final rendering, you have the possibility to manually adjust it by 25ms steps.
Caution! You must set your latency before publishing your jam or it will be too late and you will have to start again.
The sound level of the other jammers
For the moment, you can only adjust the sound level of the other jammers during your recording. If you want to get in line with the drums and focus less on other instruments for example, you can turn up the volume of the rhythmic and turn down the volume of the others. However, this will not appear in the final rendering. Adjusting the sound levels is an aid to recording but does not allow you to decrease a specific volume on the final jam.
We are currently working on a better audio equalizer system that will allow a better mixing of the instruments. You must also be careful when participating in your own sound volume. Respect everyone's participation so that everyone can be heard;)
imujam is designed to work with the webcam and the built-in microphone of your computer. You may want to record with a different sound card or interface. imujam is not responsible for the non-functioning of the platform in these cases and can in no way ensure the quality of your rendering. We make sure to adapt our platform to your wishes and needs as best we can, but this is not always technically possible. Feel free to contact us if you find yourself in this situation. Don't forget to specify the equipment used.
What’s a jam?
Also called “jam session”, it’s an improvisation session with several musicians on which one other musicians might join.
