AudioPort Universal is a stand-alone version of Audio Impressions' proprietary system for enabling samplers or computers dedicated to digital audio plug-ins to send multi-channel digital audio over gigabit Ethernet. AudioPort is cross-platform, so it doesn't matter whether you're sending audio from one or more Windows PC sample players to a Macintosh or Windows-based sequencer or DAW.

AudioPort is comprised of two parts, the Host and the plug-in. You install AudioPort host on one or more Windows PC computers, and you instantiate whatever VST based virtual instruments or effects plug-ins you wish inside that host. You then install one or more AudioPort plug-ins on your Macintosh or Windows sequencer or DAW. Digital audio flows from Host to plug-in via standard Gigabit Ethernet so no expensive cabling or audio I/O cards/converters are necessary.

Each host can send out up to 32 channels of digital audio at up to 192 kHz/32 bit depth, and you instantiate one AudioPort plug-in for each pair of channels being received in the sequencer or DAW. Works with MusicLab's MIDIoverLAN CP for communication with synths and samplers instantiated in AudioPort Host. Also supports direct-connected MIDI keyboards and hardware devices that have Windows drivers or native Windows support.

Just wanted to let you know that I've got the trial version Audioport plugin running on a laptop and 3 host PCs attached. The best news is that Audioport plugin works fine with the INEXPENSIVE and powerful Notion 4 notation/sequencer hybrid, over a MIDI ethernet network via the free utility, CopperLan. Thanks J, over at jBridge, for coming out with v1.5 which enables this. I'll be posting a video tutorial shortly over at my Google+ site, "Sheetmusic Playback of Original Music." You can read more about how its done now.
