Ever wonder how long the delay in Skype is?

Drew and I tested it out a while ago. I played a beat through my computer, sent it through skype, he heard it, attempted to talk in sync with it, and it was sent back to me, where I recorded his voice over the original beat I sent. Click the play button below to listen to a sample of him trying to sync up to the beat.

I forgot to mention, the dude from Winamp actually made something that was made for this, called Ninjam. It actually tries to use the delay as a musical component, by extending it to be exactly one measure long. So what you hear is what the person played one measure ago. Weird. I haven't tried it though. Stupid laws of physics not letting us jam in real time!!!
