Multimedia, AV I wanted to write something about the great progress being carried on linux as OS of choice for a professional Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) since a long time. With the inclusion of the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) into the 2.6 kernels, time has come to extend my experiences to all of you.

I have no use for any fancy audio editing. But I have one important question.

In all this mess is there some simple transparent way to have all my damn applications to access my sound hardware simultaneously?

Without recompiling everything to support some new(or old) fangled technology. Which isn't even possible for closed source apps.

When it comes to linux audio, the ability to play multiple streams at once is all i've ever wanted.
