The Remote SPeaker Protocol (rspp) enables you to control speakers in multiple PCs via udp broadcasts.

That makes it possible to transform computer pools or offices into a symphony orchestra ;-)

Includes: remote server, udp broadcaster, tracker.

You can download it here.


  1. Check makefile, especially the install_dir line
  2. make
  3. make install
  4. copy rspp-server to a directory reachable by all your PCs that should participate in our orchestra

Basic usage:

  1. write a tracker file (see the *.trk files for examples, there is no sensible documentation yet.)
  2. switch to a text-console on every pc (most likely using Ctrl-Alt-F1)
  3. log in
  4. run
    rspp-server -B -v #voice
    where #voice is the number of the voice starting from 0
  5. do _not_ log out!
  6. to play the tracker file run
If anything goes wrong, start
to get rid of the annoying beeping.

Happy composing!
