NINJAM – Realtime Online Music Collaboration Software

This definitely Looks like a sick new way to jam!

From their site:

What is NINJAM?

NINJAM is a program to allow people to make real music together via the Internet. Every participant can hear every other participant. Each user can also tweak their personal mix to his or her liking. NINJAM is cross-platform, with clients available for Mac OS X and Windows.

NINJAM uses compressed audio which allows it to work with any instrument or combination of instruments.

Now, eleven years since Napster, the music industry is worth half of what it was in 1999. According to Forrester Research, the total revenue from U.S. music sales and licensing plummeted to $6.3 billion in 2009, that is a $8.3 billion drop in revenue since 1999.  On the converse, Forrester is also saying that CD sales will be declining at about the same rate that digital downloads are growing.
