audiofile (version 0.2.6)
AudioFile (AF) is a device-independent network-transparent audio server developed at Digital Equipment Corporation's Cambridge Research Laboratory. With AudioFile, multiple audio applications can run simultaneously, sharing access to the actual audio hardware. Network transparency means that application programs can run on machines scattered throughout the network. Because AF permits applications to be device-independent, applications need not be rewritten to work with new audio hardware. AudioFile does for sound what the X Window System does for text and graphics.
