 On the ALSA Track

Linux Journal talks abotu making sound with ALSA.

"With the adoption of ALSA as the default Linux sound system, a new world of improved audio resources awaits developers and users. However, since 1992 many excellent sound and music applications have been written for the now-deprecated OSS/Free interface. ALSA wisely provides an OSS/Free emulation layer that acts transparently when a non-ALSA audio application is run. There's no need for the normal user to reconfigure anything; ALSA simply appears as OSS/Free to the running program."
