I strongly advise using "Jack" as the audio engine in Ubuntu. It allows you
to have zillions of apps connected.
If you don't know how to configure/install jack we can help. I have used
OSS/ALSA a lot but jack simplifiies a lot of the troubles and allows more
connectivity between audio executables (pd, ardour, effect suits, in/outs,
install jackd (the audio server)
install qjackctl (graphical front-end)
