Open network audio protocol
Companies like Midas, Aviom, Mackie, and others are using proprietary protocols for networking. Imagine a world where all audio devices, from all manufacturers, can work together in the digital realm.
The Linux audio community needs to recognize this opportunity and put a lot of funding into netjack and related programs. Then, it needs to submit this protocol to a recognized standards organization for adoption. Once this is achieved, the community can expect manufacturer adoption, and therefore, funding.
