Music (sound) via the internet is common technology. I'm sure there are
various multi-media programs and digital recording hardware item that
could accomplish this. I am only familiar with MIDI (Musical Instrument
Digutal Interface) which is an essential part of multi-media work.
If music, pipe and bugle calls are transcribed into SMF (Standard MIDI
Files) then they (the notes) can played back through the computer. The
sounds however, are limited to whatever sounds are resident in the
individual computers of each user. Those that may have MIDI compatible
sound modules such as Korg, or Roland and many other brands, can use the
SMF's to generate sounds that are remarkably realistic, especially
drums, brass, and flutes.
The bottom line is that most anyone can create a MIDI file from sheet
music and put it on the internet. The quality of what the user hears
will depend on the resources he or she has at the othjer end.
Hope I have been of some help.
