“Why is Music Island all mixed up?” said one visitor to MI this morning.
Instead of one stage and seating areas there are two. This state of affairs will persist only until after the Avatar Metaverse Orchestra concert on Sat. Mar. 27. Because of the unique nature of the performance, audience and musicians must be in the same simulation.
For streamed music having the performers across a sim line shelters them from audience lag and assures performers won’t be locked out of a full sim should they be disconnected. But for AOM that uses inworld sounds, the sim line is an obstacle to the transmission of their inworld sound content.
So don’t be surprised by the changes. Also, get there early as the one sim format means lower capacity! Come early to avoid disappointment.
