not yet; but the plan is to use a similar approach for audio as well.

I'm interested as well but that's not easy.  The client side works on
MacOS, it allows programs using sndio on MacOS to use audio/MIDI
hardware of a Linux system (through the network). This is the easy
part. The harder part is to make sndio programs use MacOS hardware.

thanks I'll check it.
