Dear all,

I am new to ecasound and this list. I have just built and installed
ecasound on OSX, seemingly successfully. I can call ecasound in the
terminal with no problems.

However, my problem is that I cannot get any sound out of it! I think
it's a problem with the sound device, since the examples are for linux
and ALSA they do not seem to be working on OSX. I have tried ecasound -
i somefile.mp3 -o alsa which as you can expect gives an error. And
ecasound somefile.wav which gives me this error (note that I have
already launched Jack OSX):

I would really appreciate your comments as I am eager to try ecasound
in my search for a non GUI DAW.

Thanks in advance
