I’m dreaming of an audio setup in my home, where each room has a set of speakers which is in some way connected to a main server, and some rooms also have audio inputs that are connected to the same server (for example a chromecast audio, a gaming pc, a TV, the doorbell). The connections could be through simple analog cables, or in a more advanced form like Dante.
The server then has X ASIO input devices and Y ASIO output devices. What I would like to do then is play the sound from every input device on every output device, and then controlling how loud each input is on each output through an OSC controlled fader.
I’m currently searching for software that can do exactly this, and stumbled upon Ardour, which seems to be able to do some mixing and is also controllable through OSC. Would Ardour be able to do what I want? It would’nt have to record anything. It would just have to pass audio from the inputs, to the X times Y faders, to the outputs with as low latency as possible.
If yes, do you have some hints on how it would be done?
If not, do you know software that would fit that role?
