    Audio backends #


    Windows #

    ASIO #

    Direct Sound #

    WSAPI #

    Linux #

    Seriously, check out Making Sense of The Linux Audio Stack on Venam’s Blog. It’s a rather painfully long read, but if you’re trying to do Linux audio, it’s probably less painful than trying to figure it all out by stumbling though it.

    ALSA #

    Pulse Audio #

    Jack #

    A few programs you wouldn’t expect to run directly though jack, one of the more annoying is Telegram. To fix Telegram at least, just use alsoft-config and go to Backends->General, then right click Disabled backends and add JACK.

    Pipewire #

    Really weird stuff that doesn’t fit elsewhere #
