Use a Browser Powered by Chromium

Sessionwire is a powerful, cutting edge, live communications tool that allows musicians, producers and audio professionals to work together online in a live environment. Combining video and multiple audio streams in a single application is not an easy task and the only browser engine currently up to the task is Chromium. The recommended browsers for Sessionwire are Brave, Chrome and Edge.

Since Safari and Firefox don't fully support the audio technology available in Chromium they are blocked from participating in studio calls.

Is Your Computer Ready for Online Production?

Sessionwire is unlike any other video communications platform available. Each connection features a video, voice and music channel with the highest levels of security and lowest possible latency. While other platforms build products around social calls and business meetings, Sessionwire is precision engineered for aspiring creators and industry professionals who demand the most intuitive and immersive online production environment possible.

Realizing the full power and potential of Sessionwire requires a computer that is up to the task. Working with multiple streams of live video, voice and stereo studio-quality audio requires a machine that can process the data quickly and efficiently. Having said that, nearly any recent model Mac or PC will do the job nicely.
