Completely understandable, but I am wondering can't you specify which
Alsa device you are using in Pd? If so, there you should be able to
specify a virtual device as it is defined in asoundrc? Sorry, been away
from Pd for a while :-(. Otherwise the ball may be in Pd's court? Please
correct me if I am wrong.
