    Hi,
    I want to learn how to have live audio feeding into laptop and simultaniously have it streamed out over a wireless network.I have Soundflower and some live recording programs ie: Garageband, Ableton lite, Audacity. Can anyone help me? I would appreciate any suggestions...
    ps. Does anyone have a version of AU Lab 2.0.1? It seems mac has discontinued this app. tx

    If you simply want to listen to your iTunes library then iTunes will do what you need. Simply share the iTunes library so the iTunes on you notebook and "see" the library oon the bigger desktop computer. This works fine over a wireless network. If you want to stream to your stereo amplifier then buy an Apple Airport Express.

    But if you really want to stream audio then here is a good place to start.

    Remember that almost everything that runs under UNIX/Linux can also run on the Mac. In addition to the network server software you will need a program to create the streams The downloads page has links to there programs
