Aretousa: A Competitive Audio Streaming Software for Network Music Performance

Many existing open source systems provide support for Network Music Performance (NMP), with each one catering to a specific system and usage scenario. As our research in evaluating the Quality of Experience (QoE) of NMP systems as perceived by musicians involves widely different scenarios and requires extensive instrumentation of the platform, we built a new NMP system, Aretousa. Our system offers a large number of configuration and monitoring options, without sacrificing latency, the most critical factor for NMP. To show that Aretousa provides flexibility while being competitive with the state of the art in terms of latency, we present measurements comparing it against JackTrip in multiple setups over a high speed research network.
