-ALSA provides fully open-sourced drivers for sound and MIDI in GNU/Linux as well as a library and API for software development. The project aims to support consumer to professional grade hardware devices, with as much access to the gizzards of the hardware as is humanly and mechanically possible. It can be seen as an extention to the earlier OSS driver effort (by 4front technologies), retaining full compatibility with OSS driven softwares. ALSA has since become the driver of choice for the linux 2.6 brand of kernels, and is best used in conjunction with JACK.+ALSA provides fully open-sourced drivers for sound and MIDI in GNU/Linux as well as a library and API for software development.
