Nice! I've been thinking about something along these lines too. I have an account over at Kompoz, but I haven't done anything with it. The site has functions where musicians can have private teams (not just general public), and it's easy to use for Linux users (I've seen some where it's basically impossible to work with). The site is built on a different monetizing model, and it's fairly flexible as far as copyright preferences. I've seen collabs ranging from copyrighted to creative commons...

I like what LMMS studio is doing over at Bandcamp, too... with their annual album release showcasing LMMS artists (LMMS artists on Bandcamp).

If you're looking for for a collaboration tool look no further than riot.im

https://about.riot.im

Free, opensource online chat and collab.
Works in browser, desktop app, mobile apps.
Heck, there are even cli clients :-)

Guest can join, no direct need to setup an account.
Voice and video chat
Screen share
File uploads

You can setup a 'room" for your project and invite others. You have the option to set a room to private if you want.

It's very stable and under active development.

Bonus, there are bridges to irc (freenode for example) so I use it for irc chat too.

Bonus bonus, bots can be added to the room (github, gifs, Google etc)

And come one, we are Linux musicians, we are almost obligated to use an opensource tool ;-)

Er.. The riot.im thing can be as big or small as you like.
Just set the room to private (I think that's the default anyway)

riot.im looks like the right idea, a complete P2P communication & collaboration system. I won't get my hopes up though. It's built on top of some new framework for such things called Matrix (seriously :lol:) and it's all built on Javascript etc, convenient but not so great. I'll probably just wait a few years until a more polished system comes along.

I use it all the time. Seems pretty robust to me.

I don't get the P2P yet. Is that to jam together?
Need to say i didn't read the info yet. :oops:

For sharing there are plenty options, were this one could easily be the best.

Were i'm asking for is to get the contacts. With people you already know.

Seems like the people you already know are right here on this forum, which incidentally is software designed for collaboration :wink:. I'm with you on this one, I think a simple section on linuxmusicians that is specifically for working together on music would suffice. From there, people can choose further means of communication and file sharing.

haha, nope. P2P meaning no central servers, no big internet company to screw it up for profit. The networking equivalent of open-source.

There IS a program for jamming over the internet, but latency would be >50ms for most people, so that's hopeless.
I guess the best approximation is to share tracks via something like Dropbox. Drop the other people's tracks into your DAW, record your track, share it, and repeat.
