I tried using netjack to transfer audio between a Linux machine and a
Windows machine but netjack wasn't very stable on Windows (endless
xruns even when nothing was going on, plus I had to bridge the ALSA
MIDI to jack and back on both sides). The plan was to use Linux for
MIDI sequencing and recording and use Windows for hosting samples (via
Kontakt, PLAY, etc). A more stable solution for me was to send MIDI to
Windows via QMidiNet (using ipMIDI on the Windows side to receive the
MIDI), and send the audio back via SPDIF, and I have been using this
successfully for a while (using RME Multiface on Linux for all audio
output, so the Windows audio is all routed to Linux for monitoring).
This only allows one stereo channel at a time, though, which can be
tedious to record, so I am upgrading to using ADAT between the two for
audio (will give me 8 channels of digital audio between the two, for
now). I found an e-MU 1010 for less than $150, which is the perfect
card for standalone ADAT output.
