Using the API without the SmartSDR program

Does anyone know if the API can be used to control a 6700 without having the SmartSDR app running? Also, is it possible to play an audio stream of a slice through my app? (I want to record 2 slices and embed some other data in the recording). The API appears to connect fine without SmartSDR running, it looks as if I just need to do a few more steps to get the slice to play to a destination port, or there is a streaming facility in the API? Is there any documentation on how this is done? Thanks

    Yes, you can use the API to control the radio whether the client is running or not.  In fact, the client itself uses to API to talk to the radio.

    Yes to both questions.

    You have the ability to write a complete SmartSDR replacement using the API and other lower-level ethernet API commands.

    To get audio you need to look at Opus stuff.   You can also setup Dax audio out and assign it to a slice and open one of the Dax audio outputs.

    And if you feel like a challenge you can use the I/Q stream which you can assign to a panadapter and get a very wide stream of data.  Conversion is required to make it meaningful.

    Excellent. That's where I want to go with this. Is there any code examples around?

    Jason, I have a stand-alone client to control my Flex 6300.  However, my client does not process any audio from the radio.  I'd be glad to help you if I canl
