NAME

       RoarAudio - RoarAudio sound system and package

SYNOPSIS

       roard [OPTIONS]...

DESCRIPTION

       RoarAudio  is  a  modern, multi-OS, network transparent sound system.  It supports a large
       amount of features required for home and professional  usage.   Its  main  purpose  is  to
       connect  software (like media players) and devices (like soundcards) as a mid-layer adding
       features you expect from a modern sound system  like  software  mixing  and  full  network
       transparency.

       RoarAudio  can also be used to connect multiple software components. An example for such a
       setup is a common webradio setup where the  used  playback  software  is  connected  to  a
       streaming server in addition to a local soundcard. RoarAudio has special features for such
       setups like meta data passing.
