A random MIDIviaNet session with Andre

A couple nights ago my friend Andre and I were messing around with MIDIviaNet, he was tapped into my Korg X5DR.

What the heck is MIDIviaNet???  It’s a cool little app that allows you to connect to a MIDI device over the Internet!

How does that work?  Well, MIDIviaNet only sends/revieces MIDI data, not actual audio.  In order for Andre to hear the sound that was coming out of the synth from across the Atlantic, we used a really long Dixie-Cup Phone…


Ok, we used TeamTalk!  What does that mean?  The short version is, Andre plays music from his place, I hear it “live”, and then he hears it a few seconds later because of the various delays involved in the process of sending the TeamTalk audio.  So to do this and play anything coherent requires a fair amount of work knowing how to keep your timing!  Or you can have a ‘substitute’ sound respond to you live at the “player’s side”.

Anyway, what follows is the result of all that.

I also made a quick remix/song from one bit which is pretty cool.  Enjoy!
