Sessionwire was built for musicians, by musicians
We set out to design the dream solution for musicians and producers. Our goal was to build an all-in-one solution that would make it possible to recreate the feeling of being in the recording studio while physically being apart.
You can now record a song on your laptop, collaborate with other musicians remotely as though they were in the room with you, and then hang out virtually with a mix engineer online to complete the track.

It's All About Community
Talent is being discovered daily on Sessionwire.
As our community grows, so does the value of our membership. Producers, engineers, session singers and musicians are collaborating with each other in over 25 countries. Recording studios have added virtual rooms and players and new songwriting partnerships have been formed. We will continue to bring more talent together and empower creators all over the world.
“The object is to facilitate finding other collaborators and communicating with them. This isn’t like a social media-type venture, where people swap tracks — it’s more like a pool of available session musicians.”

Can I jam in real time with my friends using Sessionwire?
Due to the laws of physics, jamming in real time with anyone over the internet is and always will be next to impossible – barring a major breakthrough in quantum teleportation and entanglement.
Sessionwire’s transmission of audio and video at high quality results in some latency that most performers would find distracting if attempting to jam or rehearse in real time. This is unavoidable and Sessionwire promotes workflows that accommodate this latency.
See the Common Applications section for discussion on how work using Sessionwire.

Do I need a DAW open to use Sessionwire?
No! You do not need a DAW open and running in order to use Sessionwire.
What is the audio quality like when I use Sessionwire?
The Sessionwire application utilizes a well known audio codec alongside proprietary software to transmit audio at an effective 48kHz 32-bit floating over our dedicated stereo HQ Audio stream at 400kbps.
There is also a dedicated Talkback Audio stream that transmits separately and utilizes echo cancellation and noise suppression – just like a Zoom or Skype call.
