New Software: Network Audio Transmitter

A student recently asked how to make a high-quality audio link from the basement of a building to an upper floor. It’s too long to run a cable, and a suitable radio link would be complicated. The building does have an ethernet network, so I created some free applications (using MAX/MSP) to stream live uncompressed audio over a local network.

It’s a complex solution to a simple problem, but computers/networks seem to be more plentiful than hundreds of feet of XLR cable!
