Some day, it's probable that the worst internet bandwidth will be better than anything any of us have in our local setup today...at which point, it could be possible for someone with a controller in New York, and someone with a mic in Tokyo, to record to a computer in London with less latency than any of us get today with the audio interface connected to our own computer.
