I have been interested in trying to setup a system like this for our 
radio station for a while now. How are you planning to do all this, 
through jack.udp? If so, it'd be nice if somebody wrote a gui or 
something to control jack.udp, I was thinking about doing this, but have 
been too distracted with radio stuff to devote much time towards it.
