Could you explain why it isn't useful?

Yes, it's clear what you try to archive.

The easiest way would be using jackd and to replace Audacity by
something else, perhaps Ardour.

However, I strongly discourage from doing so, if possible separate the
gear used to go on the air, from the equipment used for producing, while
being on the air. Doing both at the same time on one machine is asking
for trouble, not related to your IO issue, but related to accidents.
