I don't know if this is a real phenomenon, something in my imagination, or something else. As with most players, getting together to play, be it rehearsal or shows, has been a no-no recently. Since last summer, following a false start with JamKazam, we have been using Jamulus once or twice a week, between 3 and 5 hours at a time. I've also taken the opportunity for 'moonlighting' - surfing other active servers and joining in sessions with other musicians, which has been great. Probably 70% of my playing over the last 6 months has been on Jamulus. But, and here's the issue. I think playing most of the time in 'near-real time' with 20-50ms latency has messed with my 'real-time' sense of time. If I play with a metronome or drum track now I find myself getting in front. Not really rushing - more just 'over-anticipation'. It is not blatant, but just enough to feel like I'm pushing out in front of the beat. I notice it also if I am tapping along to music in the car. I just feel like I am tapping just a little in front and I have to make a conscious effort to hold back, so it feels like a slight ebb and flow in my timing, but not in a good way. It doesn't take long to readjust but I have to do it mindfully, whereas before playing 'on line' I could very much rely on my internal time to just be there. I just wonder if anyone else has experienced the same or similar phenomenon. It's not such a big deal that's looking for loads of "have you tried..." advice; rather it seems like an interesting 21st century topic to discuss.
