The ALSA driver is fully compatible with OSS/Lite Mixer and PCM interfaces, so probably all OSS (Open Sound System) applications which use these interfaces should work. The ALSA driver offers better native interfaces, and many applications now offer native support. If your Application is not mentioned, please edit this page and add it.



All OSS applications should work with ALSA through the OSS emulation layer.
