jack.udp - JACK UDP Transport Client
jack.udp [options] send|recv
-b Set the ring buffer size in frames (default=4096).
-c Set the number of channels, and therefore the number of JACK
-p Set the port number (default=57120).
-r The remote host name, for use in send mode
jack.udp is a UDP audio transport mechansim for JACK. The send mode
reads signals from a set of JACK input ports and sends UDP packets to
the indicated port at the indicated host at a rate determined by the
local JACK daemon. The recv mode reads incoming packets at the
indicated port and writes the incoming data to a set of JACK output
ports at a rate that is determined by the local JACK daemon.
This transport mechanism is unreliable. Both send and recv clients
will report buffer overflow and underflow occurences, and recv clients
will report dropped and out-of-order packets, and shutdown on channel
mismatch packets. In practice this mechanism can be made highly
reliable over local networks.
jack.udp implements no connection logic, use jack.plumbing(1) instead.
