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.
