Audio file player and sound daemon
When two or more applications want to play sounds at the same time, whoever gets to the audio device first wins. With EsounD (The Enlightened Sound Daemon) you can mix several audio streams for playback by a single audio device. You can also pre-load samples, and play them back without having to send all the data for the sound. Network transparency is built in, so you can play sounds on one machine, and listen to them on another.
