       jack_netsource - Netjack Master client for one slave


       jack_netsource [ -H hostname ] [ options ]


       jack_netsource  The Master side of a netjack connection. Represents the
       slave jackd -dnet in the master jack graph.  Most connection parameters
       are  configured  via  the  netsource,  and the slave will set itself up
       according to the commandline option given to jack_netsource.
       Netjack allows low latency audio connections over general IP  networks.
       When  using  celt  for  compression,  it  is even possible to establish
       transatlantic links, with latencies not much over the actual ping time.
       But  the main usecase is of course a LAN, where it can achieve one jack
       period of latency.

       run a 4 audio channel bidirectional  link  with  one  period  of
       latency and no midi channels. Audio data is flowing uncompressed
       over the wire:
       On hostA:

              jackd -d alsa
              jack_netsource -H hostB -n1 -i4 -o4 -I0 -O0

       On hostB:

              jackd -d net
