I just read about an amazing program on Macsimum News called Audio Fabric. According to the developer it is
a service that enables musicians to play together live over the Internet using any type of instrument-acoustic, electric, MIDI, or voice. Musicians in different locations can play together as if they are in the same room using their ordinary broadband Internet connections.
Now I am a strong proponent of playing together in the same room or on the same stage but the possibilities that this program presents to musicians is pretty mindblowing. It doesn’t have to replace human contact, just compliment it. Pretty cool.
