WIFI IS OFF

OK, HERE WE GO!

STEP 1) – OPEN A WEB BROWSER AND NAVIGATE TO: https://jamulus.io

STEP 2) – CLICK ON “Mac” FROM THE “Download now for” TEXT (AS SHOW BELOW) TO START THE JAMULUS SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD. IF ASKED, ACCEPT THE DOWNLOAD.

STEP 3) – OPEN A NEW “FINDER” WINDOW, NAVIGATE TO YOUR DOWNLOAD FOLDER AND DOUBLE CLICK ON THE jamulus_3.8.0_mac.dmg FILE THAT YOU JUST DOWNLOADED

STEP 4) – ACCEPT THE LICENSE AND WHEN THE INSTALL WINDOW APPEARS (AS SHOWN BELOW), CLICK ON, HOLD, AND DRAG THE BLUE JAMULUS ICON TO THE APPLICATION FOLDER AND DROP IT THERE. WE WON’T BE INSTALLING THE JAMULUS SERVER SOFTWARE.

STEP 5) – PRESS <COMMAND><SPACEBAR> ON YOUR KEYBOARD AND TYPE “JAMULUS” IN THE SERCH WINDOW. VERIFY JAMULUS IS SELECTED AND PRESS <ENTER>.

STEP 6) – CLICK ON “OPEN” IN THE MESSAGE THAT POPS UP AS SHOWN BELOW.

STEP 7) – DEPENDING ON YOUR SECURITY SETTINGS, YOU MAY RECEIVE A MESSAGE STATING THAT THE PROGRAM COULD NOT BE OPENED. IF SO, OPEN YOUR “SYSTEM PREFERENCES”, SELECT “SECURITY AND PRIVACY”, AND CLICK ON “OPEN ANYWAY” IN THE MESSAGE YOU’LL FIND THERE.

STEP 8) – JAMULUS WILL NOW OPEN. CLICK ON “SETTINGS” AND FILL OUT THE MUSICIAN’S PROFILE IN THE “PROFILES” SECTION (JUST YOUR NAME WILL SUFFICE UNLESS YOU WANT TO JOIN A PUBLIC SERVER)

STEP 9) – WHILE IN THE “SETTINGS” WINDOW, SELECT THE “Audio/Network Setup” TAB, CLICK ON THE DROPDOWN BOX BELOW “DEVICE” AND SELECT YOUR AUDIO INTERFACE FOR BOTH “IN:” AND “OUT:” SETTINGS. THIS TELLS JAMULUS TO USE YOUR AUDIO INTERFACE FOR ALL AUDIO SIGNALS. FOR EXAMPLE MY AUDIO INTERFACE IS A PRESONUS “AudioBox USB 96” AS SHOW BELOW. YOU MAY LEAVE THE OTHER SETTINGS AT THEIR DEFAULT SETTINGS.

STEP 10) – CLOSE OUT THE “SETTINGS” WINDOW. CLICK ON “CONNECT” IN THE “JAMULUS” WINDOW. IF YOU RECEIVE A MESSAGE ABOUT “ACCEPTING INCOMING NETWORK CONNECTIONS”, CLICK ON “ALLOW” AND THE CONNECTION WINDOW SHOULD OPEN WITH A LISTING OF PUBLIC JAMULUS SERVERS. GO TO THE “SERVER ADDRESS” DROPDOWN BOX AND ENTER THE IP ADDRESS OF 69.5.97.18:22124 TO SELECT OUR PRIVATE SERVER. CLICK ON “CONNECT” AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

STEP 11) – AN EXAMPLE OF A SUCCESSFUL CONNECTION IS SHOWN BELOW. THE “L” AND “R” BAR GRAPHS ARE YOUR AUDIO INTERFACE CHANNELS. AS OTHERS JOIN, THEY WILL BE DISPLAYED ALONG WITH THEIR NAME AND YOU CAN ADJUST THEIR INDIVIDUAL VOLUME AND PAN THE THEM LEFT OR RIGHT AS DESIRED. PLAY AROUND WITH THE ADJUSTMENTS TO GET THE HANG OF IT.
