Thank you for the suggestions. I researched NINJAM and came up with Windows 98. Current support was non existent.
I am sticking with JamKazam. I figured out the peculiarities of the hardware I chose. Supported hardware is key. Using the manufacturer’s ASIO driver is best. Using ASIO4ALL is a 2017 software package which will link all audio hardware devices under ASIO control. My sessions are now between yellow and green.
I have also been able to get some reasonable results with some others on Jamkazam as on Jamulus. They both work about the same, as far as creating a peer to peer connection, just different interface. Jamulus is a much simpler user interface and easier for many to install and set up, can be used in Linux as well. It's an open source project, (not a big commecial venture) and the developer has been active and very responsive to users (and coders) suggestions, working on improving aspects on daily basis.
The initial main issue folks have any program is just sound equipment; quite similar to if using a DAW. Understanding it, and setting it to get optimum performance/stability/quality. Then a big part is learning to listen/monitor differently then they are used to. That is, some folks can have similar difficulty in recording situations and getting in sync. with previous tracks. One factor shows up, is difference in how folks listen to beat (even acoustically), how solid/steady they play on the beat, that affects the outcome.

A good article I saw today.
Thanks for sending that info!
Very nice! Do you know of any chat rooms for acoustic players? No one seems to utilize the one on here.
