EsounD, the Enlightened Sound Daemon, is a server process that mixes several audio streams for playback by a single audio device. For example, if you’re listening to music on a CD and you receive a sound-related event from ICQ, the two applications won’t have to jockey for the use of your sound card.

More information is available at but the latest source is available from the Gnome project.


This is a kernel extension that creates a virtual audio output device that can be used to stream audio across the network to an EsounD server.

Hasn’t been updated for awhile. Has anyone tested this recently?
