RoarAudio - RoarAudio sound system and package


roard [OPTIONS]...


RoarAudio is a modern, multi-OS, network transparent sound system. It supports a large amount of features required for home and professional usage. Its main purpose is to con‐ nect software (like media players) and devices (like soundcards) as a mid-layer adding features you expect from a modern sound system like software mixing and full network transparency. RoarAudio can also be used to connect multiple software components. An example for such a setup is a common webradio setup where the used playback software is connected to a streaming server in addition to a local soundcard. RoarAudio has special features for such setups like meta data passing.

Network support for UNIX Domain Sockets, TCP/IP and DECnet * multiple audio streams per client * Vorbis comments like meta data for each audio stream * support for "legacy" clients via libroaresd, libroararts, libroaryiff * support for PulseAudio and OpenBSD's sndio clients via libroarpulse and libroarsndio * supported by many media players and other sound using applications! * mixing clients at individual levels like an analog mixer * server and client side support for common codecs like Ogg Vorbis, Speex, FLAC and many more * support for 8, 16, 24 and 32 bit per sample.
