I don't produce music 24/7, I also use Linux and FreeBSD without

videos, listening to web radio and having a call by Skype at the same
time, to ensure that the volume always is at the same level, if you turn
on or of one source. Is this correct? On my machine I at least can watch
2 videos, listening to web radio at the same time. I never used Skype,
I've got a landline telephone. Usually I don't use jack for
entertainment, it's just ALSA on Linux and OSS on FreeBSD. This does
work without issues and I manually can adjust the volume. Btw. I seldom
watch 2 videos and listening to web radio at the same time.
I don't need pulseaudio, so I don't install it, even if it's a hard
dependency, there are ways to get rid of this fine software.
I experienced pulseaudio as a guarantor for trouble. YMMV!
