surely it requires libjack - and probably libc, too :)

Hi Fons,

Wow, that sounds great.

I'm curious why you've made a standalone client out of this, rather than
fixing netjack. Is there any chance that this could become an internal
client (required for forwarding jack-transport)?

What is the use-case of directly resampling for network-transmission?
Are you running two jackd's at different sample-rates? And if not,
how does that differ from using netjack and resampling locally with

Could it be used to bridge two jackd's on localhost with different SR?

Why is it limited to 64 channels only?

Are there any plan to add support for jack-midi ports?

Does it set jack port-latencies properly (after resampling)?

I suppose I am interested in testing :)
