Thank you Joshua.

Out of curiosity, what is the maximum capacity you have heard for simultaneous ConfBridges in a single box?  (Looking at 3-4 channels per ConfBridge) with recording.

Ultimately it still does rely on timing and depending on the conditions it can have an impact on things. If timing is poor and the jitterbuffer on an endpoint can't cope then you will have audio problems. AWS doesn't guarantee this and depending on the host node problems can occur. It will come up when playing back audio files, using ConfBridge, and music on hold.
