Hey folks,

For those interested in jamming accross MSN with other people, I thought I`d put together this little guide for you to try it smile.gif

there are sometimes latency problems and the signal is cut sometimes. Try it anyway, maybe it

works for you sometimes!


Start with launching POD Farm or Gearbox. Then open MSN and click on the Extras button where the following

window is going to appear.



Click on Audio and Video Setup. You are going to see this window:



Click on "Next".



Here you should choose the "Speakers (your audio interface)" option from the list. Then click on "Play Sound"

and make sure if you hear the sound. If not, make sure if your headphones/speakers are connected properly to your

audio interface which should be linked to the computer correctly. If everyhing´s ok, click on "Next".



Choose from the drop-down list the option that says "Audio Interface (the name of it). Now, make sure that

your guitar is connected to your interface and play something, it doesn´t matter what, nobody is going to hear you

yet, so you can mess up everything. laugh.gif If it works without problems, click on "Next".



Now you are supposed to choose your webcam from the list. If you see yourself in the box (if your camera is set up

correctly and if it focuses you and not the floor laugh.gif ), it is working and you can click on "Finish".



Now you can start talking with someone and call him. Normally, he should hear you.


I hope that everything is clear and it works for you! If not, don´t hesitate to contact me. wink.gif

See you,
Tolek

Sometimes there´s latency, but sometimes we can have a pretty nice sounding jam in real time. It all depends on I don´t know what. laugh.gif

It´s impossible to use both at the same time unfortunately.

skype works fine for this...
Ivan Milenkovic
I must try the Skype thing, sounds cool if possible smile.gif
Tolek
Sure, no problem. It is basically the same thing, there are only different images and texts. If you need someone to try with, I can help you. biggrin.gif

I tried it few times but it didn't work for me sad.gif There were constant disconnecting problems all the time...But I haven't tried in a while , maybe they have repaired all the bugs so far! smile.gif
Vasilije Vukmirovic
Wow, this is what I've been waiting for, fantastic explanation.
I mean, that half second delay is tricky...but they will fix it some how in the future...
