I started a teamspeak practice server for people to listen to one another play, just chit-chat, even possibly jam session(headphones required or you'll burst everyone's eardrums with all the feedback.)


You can get the client at 

There are clients for pc, mac, iphone, and android phones. 

Server info is:

After you get the client for teamspeak3 installed, please go to  settings > options > capture > and select push-to-talk if it's not already default. If you click the box next to it, the next button you hit will be assigned as your push-to-talk button. This does exactly what it sounds like, you push and others can hear you. If you go in a private practice room, you can change it to continuous transmission in order for the other person to hear you playing.



There is currently a 10 person limit, because i have no idea if anyone will even like this idea. This is an experiment so leave feedback about the idea. Teamspeak is primarily used for voice chat, so they may have voice recognition and noise cancellation in the software that could interfere with hearing violin sounds. Let me know. The quality for voice is very high normally.

Great idea to try it out.  Thanks, Jared.

But you have snubbed the Linux and FreeBSD users.

It is supposed to run on just about everything.

Now that is what I call a a good software-design decision!

He's offering a FREE service. Its not snubbing anyone. If you are not able to use a FREE service, that's your problem not the person offering a FREE service. IF you have experience in something other then the FREE service someone is offering, by all means offer your version. Don't start ripping on aperson for doing something for FREE.

Actually, what I believe RU was commenting on was that teamspeak is definitely useable by Linux folks.  So I think it was more on the order of saying "Hey, it works for us too!  Cool!"  Not sure, but I think RU might have been one of the folks who helped Jared test the teamspeak when Jared first got it set up.  So I really doubt it was meant as any sort of a dis.

It's a cool idea.  I don't know if the lag will allow for jamming or not, but even voicechat and "listen to this" from folks one usually knows only by text can be fun.
