To be clear: I don't have PulseAudio installed on any of my Linux machines. I have no particular argument for or against it. If it works for you: great! I happen to use Jack: it's what I'm familiar with, and it serves my needs. There may come a time when that changes - I'm a believer in using the right tool for the right job - at which time maybe I'll consider it.
If you can understand routing audio through tielines in a theatre, then Jack's routing is no more difficult (particularly if one uses the QJackCtl GUI to get an overview of what's routed where). The limitation of 64 clients is only being in danger of being hit because of how LiSP currently uses GStreamer (for which there is now a ticket: #168), and is no way worse than what (from the source code) looks to be a 32-channel-per-device/application limit in PulseAudio.
And from what I can tell, PulseAudio doesn't provide any more of a direct connection to the physical outputs than Jack does (probably less so, thanks to certain PulseAudio features). Both run audio through a software mixer of sorts. (They kinda need to, else only one application would be able to use a soundcard at a time.)

l10n_develop, the code is not in sync with the actual
developbranch. You can test them by merging that branch into develop (locally), or simply copy the translations manually, then run
./i18n_update.py --all --qmwhile in the lisp source folder, this should "compile" the translations file so that the Qt framework can read them.
@macdroid53 well, I'm neither going for Windows nor non-free software.
Info-Beamer was already in consideration, but our raspberry pi system turned out not to be powerfull enough to run heavy slideshows as well. Some users still put all their stuff into a ~3Gb powerpoint, we didn't really find a way to handle this. Thus, we would like to go for a system run from a rather powerful machine.
I'm somewhat happy with my current setup - mpv launchers, presentation software, fading windows (and thus the content). I just wanted to turn the very complex setup created over years into something usable for everyone.
Why do you normalize with audacity? I'm happy enough with the normalization feature in LiSP.
@FrancescoCeruti thank you, I'll make sure to check it out. But there's currently close to no time left between all the work that needs to be done.
But hey, I got to assist in six different theatre plays last week and introduced LiSP to the existing (2 guys) crew, we actually used it for 2 plays and the closing ceremony. They were still "stuck" with a two deck cd player and good old VLC.
