Recent discussion on LAU morphed into an idea for an Ethernet driven
sound card, and as this is now becoming a real development the
suggestion was made that it would be better to transfer the discussion
here.

The rationale in brief:

No proprietry hardware soundcard needed.

Almost all modern computers have reasonably fast Ethernet connections.

Potentially up to 20 channels per card - reality will probably be a lot
different!

FOSS drivers to connect Ethernet to whatever audio server is on the
computer - looking at jack right now.

FOSS within the soundcard module so that protocols/algorythings can be
tuned for best results.

FOSH design enabling hardware to be developed and inproved by anyone.

A number of people have shown interest in this, and we are at the stage
of starting to knock together some basic hardware for a feasibility
study.

State of play:

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
