It works !
For the record, it works too with the index value gived with :
pacmd list-sinks | egrep 'index|name:'
I prefer this way because, as I've got multiple times the same card, the
name (which depends on how many card I've got) could change if I remove
one of them. The index is fixed in that case.
Thanks a lot.

I want to run applications with specifics sound cards in command line
I know it is graphically possible with Pulseaudio Volume Control which
let me choose the card in a menu after the application is launched.
But I want to use command lines so that I can automatize the process

I've tried "pactl set-default-sink" but it changes the card for all
I've looked in "man pulse-cli-syntax" but I didn't find what I'm
I've also tried to use environment variables such as ALSA_CARD= and
ALSA_PCM_CARD= without success.
Is there a way to do what I want ?
Maybe the PULSE_SINK environment variable will do the trick. The
variable value is a sink name (to get a list of names, run "pactl list
sinks | grep Name").
