- for a graphical line interface
LASH stands for LASH Audio Session Handler.
It is a session management system for audio applications on GNU/Linux. It understands the JACK low latency audio API and the ALSA MIDI sequencer interface. The system is comprised of a server program, lashd , an application library, liblash , and a control program - either the command-line lash_control or the GTK lash_panel. The server and clients communicate over TCP sockets. There are three kinds of clients: normal clients (audio applications), user interfaces for the server, and connection patchbays.
The programs are documented fully by LASH Audio Session Handler Reference Manual, available via the Info system (lash-manual).
