Hi Lindsay,

My condolences about having PA on your system. :-)

Being ignorant about the low-level stuff, I don't
see why PA wasn't designed to be just another signal source to

For troubleshooting, I wonder if you might get reliable
sound by playing back a .wav file instead of an .mp3, which
requires an external process.

As chief stirrer of Nama's codebase (mmm... chocolate!), I
can say that it does simplify recording and playback
compared to barenaked Ecasound at the cost of a bit of extra setup.

In general, Nama is reasonably convenient for multitrack
recording. One of its newer capabilities might benefit your
work: although it hasn't been highly tested, recent code
allows for re-recording of phrases or flubbed notes.

Cheers and welcome
