Dear linux audio developers,
I would like to bring the effort of Andrea Bondavalli to your attention,
who develops an "AES67-linux-daemon".
This builds on the ALSA RAVENNA/AES67 Driver released by merging tchnologies
There was not much activity on mergings repository and mailing list
concerning the driver and butler after the initial release, and some
elements still seemed to be missing or were kept closed source.
Now thanks to A. Bondavallis initiative a fully open source
implementation of AES67 on linux, which opens up possibilities for
audio-networking with lots of professional grade audio hardware devices
and computers running different OS seems to be very close.
Unfortunately the developer does not seem to be an active user of the
jack ecosystem, nor ardour or other typical software for
audio-production on linux.
Though with basic alsa tools the AES67-daemon already seems to work
flawlessly, I had no success starting jack or ardour on top of it.
There was some discussion on this topic in the following thread, but to
my impression more research into compatibility with jack, ardour etc.
would be necessary.
Sadly I have not the programming skills to contribute to development
directly, but I would be glad to help with testing different
configurations, already running an AES67 network including a merging
hapi, a dante device with AES67 capability and windows machines running
MAD (merging audio device), the ravenna network manager ANEMAN and Dante
Controller. I would really like to expand this setup to my main linux
DAW and make it the centerpiece of the audio network.
