Related to the same post on community forum, since have two soundcards, SDL picks the wrong soundcard.

If it might help to get this feature some day, a tutorial of using ALSA that had on bookmarks, short and with exaple code:

Edit: Forgot to add would be low priority since there is the env var that solves it from outside

Milkytracker doesn't use Alsa directly for audio, all audio output is handled by SDL.  SDL supports a multitude of driver standards, on several different platforms;  Therefore Milkytracker also supports multiple drivers on multiple platofrms.  The disadvantage of this is that it's not possible to use device-specific features from within Milkytracker as Milkytracker can only use what features SDL provides.
