Hi all,

Announcing immediate availability of Soundmesh Internet2 audio streaming
software.

1. What is Soundmesh

Soundmesh is a result of a collaborative work with Mara Helmuth. It
originally started as an "Internet Sound Exchange" Internet2 project and
has since grown to become a full-fledged audio streaming front-end. The
sole purpose of this app is to provide a mechanism for streaming
multiple
CD-quality (or better) audio soundfiles via fast Internet2 connection,
utilizing hacked version of the RTcmix v.3.1.0. Hence, Soundmesh
provides for a unique "jamming" tool via Internet for a larger groups of
participants.

2. Obtaining Soundmesh

Soundmesh is currently only available in a source form and is
downloadable from my website. It's download is broken into 2 parts: the
soundmesh front-end (~530KB)and the hacked full version of the
RTcmix3.1.0 (8.2MB). They can be obtained using the following direct
URL's:

http://meowing.ccm.uc.edu/~ico/soundmesh/soundmesh-latest.tar.gz
(~530KB)
http://meowing.ccm.uc.edu/~ico/soundmesh/rtcmix-soundmesh.tar.gz (8.2MB)

Alternately, you can also find the download links on my website.

Documentation is also available:

3. Current Limitations

*Soundmesh obviously does not currently support modular numbers of
incoming and outgoing streams. This is something that is planned for a
future release.

*Perl (.pl) scorefiles are supported in soundmesh but do not work in
RTcmix

*Python RTcmix scorefiles are currently not supported and do not work
with
either soundmesh or this version of RTcmix

*A number of playable streams before "gapping" occurs varies depending
on the quality of a stream and the internet connection. Considering that
this is an Internet2 project, chances are your modem connection will
simply not work [well or at all].

*Sound played via network is not heard locally (should be a quick fix).

*Connections are not secure.
