Getting Pulseaudio and alsa to share one sound card

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have a Raspberry Pi 3b with a Hifiberry Amp4/DAC hat runs Moode Audio OS.

If I pick Pulse as they audio device in LedFx and play a sound file with aplay sound_file.wav my leds react to the music.

The problem is that after aplay has finished playing the sound file if I then go try to use Moode audio player Moode audio won't play music and gives me the following error:

MPD error Failed to open "ALSA Default" (alsa); Failed to open ALSA device "_audioout": Device or resource busy

This persists until I stop Ledfx. Is there a way I can switch back and forth between aplay and Moode Audio player without having to stop and start Ledfx? I am not looking to get LedFx working with Moode I only want reactive lights when I play a song with aplay.

$ aplay -l
