I've been asking myself this question for a while lately.

Can I combine the music coming out of my phone with the sound from games on my PC?

"Why?", you ask.

Because I want it!

So I started reading man pages and documentation about ALSA and PA. A couple of hours later it just works. I don't know how or why, but I did it, all by myself, because no one does such weird stuff.

I'm way too excited about this.

    @Root @zlice If you want better reasoning. I use a music player called Poweramp on my phone. It just sounds awesome and I can't even come close to that amazing sound with software on my PC. So I had to choose between music and in-game sounds, but now I can mix them.

    @gnulinuxer4fun arecord -f dat -D hw:0 | aplay -f dat -D pulse

    If I remember correctly. You might be able to use dmix instead but I couldn't get it to work, but I'm not sure. paplay and parecord didn't work for me either.

    You might have to change .asoundrc, but I don't really know what I was doing.
