[ubuntu-studio-devel] PA in audio production - was: A survey if you don't mind

I use the Pulse->Jack audio path because it allows me to edit music and at
the same time listen to (and eventually use, shhh...) pre-recorded music
available by commercial mediums (AKA spotify, youtube, vimeo, etc).

Mi notebook has PulseAudio available by default but, via a little script,
every time I start jack I redirect the audio from Pulseaudio  to JACK.

This works great for me because every time I want to play music it gets
played by the "best audio gear available". The only drawback I've found is
that redirecting PA to Jack makes my PC to use more resources (CPU load)
even if I'm not playing or recording anything.

Just my 0.02.
