New article on combining desktop and Ardour audio (Linux)

After dealing with the question many times on both IRC and here in the forums, I wrote up a first edition of what I hope will be the canonical reference answer to the question

“How can I get sound from my (browser|voice-over-IP-app|messaging-app) while Ardour is running?”

You can read it here:

I wil incorporate any updates and suggestions into future revisions. If someone would care to fill out the JACK2 section for me, even better.


That’s a very useful reference - thanks - but I chickened out and went for option 1, which works quite nicely.
