The difference is that i would like to send 6 channels of audio from multiple sources (6 channels per source) to a single machine which only relays the sound to 6 speakers.
I'm not looking for a shoutcast or oggcast external or internal, because that would mean that i would compress my audio, which I do not want.
The reason for this is because I want to play ambisonic files without any loss of quality but over a network (if i'm repeating myself too much, please say so.. I'm just trying to explain my question in more detail)
Perhaps ambisonic isn't the best way, but it has excelent positioning capabilities.
I tried netsend~ 1.0 alpha 11 but I don't know how old this version might be. At least it works better than jit.catch/jit.net.send and the release/receive patches, but they give a sort of 'clicking' sound (which is not because of my hardware setup).
Alas, the netsend~ and netreceive~ (without catch and release) don't work smooth either, though somewhat better..
the forum post I referred to is about 2 years old now, and i was wondering if there is a better version perhaps, or a new patcher that someone else made.
I also tried the wormhole vst, but this seems to drop the audio once in a while and it only seems to work with 2 channels, and having 3 vst's open for each pc that has to connect isn't really the best of ideas.
Any input, idea, link or comment is welcome!
