A Distributed Audio System
This paper introduces the design and implementation of a distributed audio system that is used to build multimedia applications. The system is based on the ANSAware distributed system which can be run on different platforms. The system is implemented in the client-server model. It provides a set of programming interfaces for audio data storage, data management and audio communication connections. Various applications can be built using these interfaces. The audio editor is such an application which can manipulate the sounds in a myriad of ways — playing, recording, labelling, trimming and so on.
