Hi Yves,

What about when you have multiple sound cards? What about when you want
to output sound from more than one program simultaneously? What about
when you want full duplex? What about when you need thread safety?

Did you know aobut alsa-oss compatability layer?

/dev/dsp is a nice and simple approach, sure.
