Online Live Rooms with Super Fast Sound

Sublive is pioneering a new way of making music by connecting musicians all over the world with an ultra-low latency and high quality audio network.

Latency be can as low as 4ms within the same city and 20ms within 1000km.

Sublive also sends the raw audio with no processing at a high bitrate to ensure it sounds just like how it was captured.

No special hardware is needed, just a desktop computer with an internet connection.

πŸ§ͺ How We Did It

Other video platforms process the audio, optimizing for conversation - where half a second here or there doesn't matter.

We've built Sublive from scratch for musicians, where every millisecond counts.

  • πŸ”Š
    Audio is prioritized over video
  • πŸ‡
    Peer-to-peer along the fastest route
  • 🌈
    Raw audio at high bitrate



in 17ms



Within the same cities the latency can be less than 5ms and 10ms between cities. We've been able to achieve sub 20ms latency from UK to Denmark - that's around 1000km !

Why I made this πŸ€“

In December 2020, I moved from πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ London to πŸ‡©πŸ‡° Denmark.

A great move for lots of reasons, but I couldn't play guitar with my band anymore 😒.

I tried a number of services and apps, but they all had too much lag 🐒 and poor audio quality.

Being a tech nerd, I did some experiments πŸ§ͺ and after a little tinkering - I found a way!

User Feedback

β€œ This. Is. EXCELLENT! Just tried it with 2 friends. Worked perfectly. We'd used Jamulus a few times last year but got fed up with its issues and it looks like it was designed in the 90's. ” WeAreTheMusicMakers

β€œ It's overwhelmingly fantastic. It's helped with me being able to teach students over the web. Just a thousand thank yous to the team. ” Manchester Guitar tutor

β€œ Hey man just a heads up, sublive is as good as ever, i noticing the avg improvement rate of my students has increased thanks to the use of it. To you guys I am grateful ” Squitsy Sam

β€œ Wow. I’ve been teaching remotely all year, private instruction and also even ensemble classes, and the latency has been a huge downer. Zoom also doesn’t handle full-spectrum audio well, so I have to basically disable all the cancellation/reduction algorithms, because they are designed for speech and often cancel the music when playing. ” ImpossibleAir4310


Right now it's in beta. Please download and feedback!
