My first post here on the forums. I would like to see ethersound either in JACK or Ardour. For those of you whom do not know here is the link: http://www.ethersound.com/

Yamaha is using it with there boards one which I am using the M7cl. Mabey this is a good question should this be a protocol for JACK or Ardour? Since Jack would handle the streaming and a library for linux would have to be written. What are all of your thoughts?

(from http://www.ethersound.com/technology/overview.php) "The patented EtherSound protocol ..."

IMO that (the fact that it's patented) makes it unlikely that there will ever be an open-source implementation. The web site seems a little vague about what their patents cover, but I strongly suspect that licensing would be required for any software.

To answer your question: Handling this protocol would be JACK's job, not Ardour's.
