Music production devices and musical instruments can take advantage of IEEE 802.11 wireless networks for interconnection and audio data sharing. In previous works such networks have been proved able to support high-quality audio streaming between devices at acceptable latencies in several application scenarios. In this work a prototype device discovery mechanism is described to improve ease of use and flexibility. A diagnostic tool is also described and provided to the community that allows to characterize average network latency and packet loss. Lower latencies are reported after software optimization and sustainability of multiple audio channels is also proved by means of experimental tests.
