For years, music students and musicians have been limited by the lack of high quality audio streaming software. Connect! aims to lift this limitation by providing an interactive high-quality real-time audio streaming. Our goal is to achieve much better audio quality compared to some other existing applications such as Skype. In addition, Connect! incorporates additional tools designed specifically to assist music students, musicians, conductors and music teachers. For instance, audio visualization is one of our primary tools, which permits the users to visually see the sent and received audio on a graphical plot. This feature allows professional users such as music professors and/or conductors to assess their students’ performances more accurately over the Internet. Although this application is developed with them in mind, it is not limited to their use. Anyone with a compatible iOS device and a decent Internet connection will be able to use this app to connect to anyone around the world and start transmitting the two-way high-quality real-time audio.
