What do you use for your LAW?
If there are special tricks you can also paste them here (for example: How to route Pulseaudio to Jack, ...
(:

Route Pulseaudio to JACK: Install "pulseaudio-module-jack".
Stop Pulseaudio temporarily >> https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?p=103154#p103154

?)).


Thank you!

I took the wrong vote. I take Jack, of course, and not "just ALSA". :-)

I'm using most time jack+pulse, sometimes only jack (often), sometimes only pulse (rare case here). All on the base of ALSA.
On the road again.

I have jack-mixer as a central jack "hub" and use jack-plumbing to disconnect all clients that try to connect to system:out and connect them to jack-mixer. So I have jack-mixer as a central point for recordings with Audacity.

I use my mainboard soundcard with pure ALSA and dmixer for consumer stuff like videos, games and music player and a PCI card with JACK for recording, mixing and midi.

For a single DAW , Alsa of course ,but if going modular and connect different apps ,I launch jack : )
Pulseaudio for everyday (non DAW) usage and can’t live without pulse anymore!
