I would second jack for getting the best performance, although setting
up jack sink with pulseaudio can be a pain and jack will usually block
applications which aren't jack-aware (browser etc.).
If really in desperate need of pd while some other audio is on you may
do something as hacky as:
padsp pd[extended] -oss -audiobuf 80 -noadc
padsp is actually a pulseaudio OSS wrapper. Of course your mileage may
vary... For example on my system I have to suppress audio input (-noadc)
to have this working and bring latency up a bit.
