       lashd - The Linux Audio Session Handler - server


       lash_control [options] - for a command line interface

       lash_panel - for a graphical line interface


       This manual page describes the LASHD lash server.

       LASH stands for LASH Audio Session Handler.
       It  is a session management system for audio applications on GNU/Linux.
       It understands the JACK  low  latency  audio  API  and  the  ALSA  MIDI
       sequencer interface. The system is comprised of a server program, lashd
       , an application library, liblash , and a control program - either  the
       command-line  lash_control  or  the  GTK  lash_panel.   The  server and
       clients communicate over TCP sockets. There are three kinds of clients:
       normal  clients  (audio  applications), user interfaces for the server,
       and connection patchbays.
