Running NINJAM in Linux

This is pretty cool stuff,

I have been “struggling” with installing NINJAM (the online music collaboration tool), and was about to give up, but decided to just download the windows application and run in Linux under wine application and it works! I had trouble installing the Ninjam installer package in Linux, so I installed first on a Windows machine, copied the ninjam directory to my Linux machine (via USB stick) and ran the command:

wine /home/msaul/NINJAM/ninjam.exe

I don’t know yet how to connect it so I can play in the online jamms, but I should be able to figure that out… I believe I need to use wine-asio

This means we can create our own Jamm (recording) sessions and music collaboration with up to 4 musicians from the comfort of our own homes! No fees for practice or recording studios! No rush! Just fun!

Here is a link to a test-session that I listened in on… not very good, you should have heard the other sessions earlier this evening! Man! This capture of the session is an ogv (Ogg Vorbis Theora) file (It runs in Windows 7, although not certain on all versions of Windows, but should run OK in Linux):

Here is another sample of a test-session that I listened into one day later of 5 members (note that the metronome is turned-off this time):

Man this is fun stuff… |: )
Now, I need to document it… |: o
