Ok, that would be great.

As Olaf already pointed out, JACK and ALSA is very linux specific, but the
solution we come up should be crossplatform.

OSC is not a streaming architecture, It doesn't provide a framework to add

I think we would have to search around the web for existing solutions
(like CStream etc.), then take a look at them and decide if we can reuse
