Running pulseaudio apps as multiple JACK inputs?

Post by lapsio »

I'm using Pulseaudio-jack-sink/source in order to route pulseaudio apps through JACK. It has one disadvantage though - all PA apps are scrambled into single JACK input and it's hard to manage them. Both for recording and playback.

Is it possible to launch specific apps (may be from command line) on separate pulseaudio-jack-sink/source or somehow on separate pulseaudio server or something like that? I'd basically like to run some apps on different "pulseaudio channel" in JACK.

To add another Pulseaudio JACK Sink to Pulseaudio

Code: Select all

pactl load-module module-jack-sink
this will create 'Pulseaudio Jack Sink 01'
repeat the command to add more sinks

audio streams can be routed to the different sinks in Pulseaudio Volume Control Playback tab - 'pavucontrol --tab=1'
use drop-down menu to assign an audio stream to one of the Sinks

similar command to add a Pulseaudio Jack Source
