Linux and Ethernet based audio interfaces

Is this like heaven for us? It doesn't look like this.
Die Installation des Gerätes erfordert die Anmeldung auf der Waves Website, das Herunterladen des Waves Software-Autorisierungscenters, der Waves Soundgrid Studio-Software und auch den Download des Soundgrid Driver Control Panel.

Die Hardware an sich muss zudem noch im Internet registriert und nachträglich über die Soundgrid Software konfiguriert werden.
I can't find out if this Softgrid stuff is available for Linux since they want me to register first. Even the hardware has to be registered.

It's more than questionable that the product works together with Linux, even if it uses Linux internally.

My verdict:

- proprietary bullshit
- not invented here syndrom
- not compatible to any established standard
- the sooner the companies offering this piece of shit go bankcrupt, the better

What can it be good for? What to communicate with?

Audio over ethernet works already with netjack, Pulseaudio and others.

Use ful to offload the processing from CPUs as plugins for Digital Editors and Mixing boards from Yamaha, Midas, Behringer, and Digico use them. The prices can start at $900 for servers which could be run in VM on existing hardware if someone knows enough to compile it effectively.

Client side still the windows-only part?
