collaberation on skype?

Are you looking for someone to jam? Do you have AIM or MSN or YIM? Would you like to collaborate online? Are you just looking for something to do with the microphone attached to your PC? Post here.

collaberation on skype?

Post by almann1979 » December 12th, 2010, 12:29 pm

i have just got skype - i never knew what it was until now, i guess i live in the dark ages :lol:

Anyway i have 2 weeks off work over christmas and plan to write a song.

I would love to collaborate with another GN member - i guess mainly because i think it would be fun to chat live over skype and write a song between us that we could post on hear here.

anybody interested?

Hey almann1979,

I would maybe interested...if I could get the dang thing to work right! have you actually tried to play music over skype? I have, & it comes across horribly distorted.

Voices are fine on both ends, but no matter what I try, the music just won't come across clear. It is very odd...I have tried quite a few different settings, used a headset/mic, & a "standalone" mic in an attempt to isolate the problem.

Nothing seems to fix it. If you or anyone else has any ideas/suggestions, please post them.

Hello katmetal.

I agree skype can be hard enough to use for holding a conversation, never mind a jam. But i had in mind more of an exchange of ideas, chord progressions, lyrics etc on skype, which we could then go away and record the parts afterwards, perhaps emailing each other our separate bits like they do in the normal jams on here.

I suppose the skype would just be an interesting way to plan a song out and exchange ideas, i would'nt recommend it for the actual recording part.
