Issues

Some users approached me with issues on Windows machines.

As a general rule, the issue was that some older interfaces – like a first generation Focusrite scarlett – were not showing on the Jamulus audio interface drop down.

The solution was:

  • Downloading the ASIO4ALL driver
  • Starting Jamulus
  • Going to the system tray and opening ASIO4ALL icon
  • Configuring it to point to the proper audio interface
  • If that doesn’t work, at least trying with the internal sound card from the computer

Using UA Apollo and Logic Pro X

For this configuration I’ve prepared a video on YouTube:

Using Reaper ReaRoute

I found about this possibility on this amazing video.

I believe it’s not on YouTube so you will have to join this facebook group to watch.

The presenter shows even how to broadcast using OBS at the end of the video:

Using Jamulus with Reaper, ReaRoute, Zoom, OBS and Facebook Live

Using Loopback or similar

Another alternative to the above is to use Loopback by Rogue Amoeba.

Route the audio from your favourite app like Amplitube into the jam session.

The snapshots below were mentioned in the episode.

Basically you can also use this to route the Jamulus session back to OBS project and then out to facebook live, for example.
