-On GNU/Linux, running Mixxx from a GUI menu or from the launcher icon automatically suspends PulseAudio while Mixxx is running so Mixxx can use your sound card with ALSA directly. To keep other programs playing sound, either they all need to use JACK, or you can try using the "​pulse"​ virtual ALSA device with Mixxx when running Mixxx on the command line without pasuspender. Refer to the Mixxx manual for more information about [[https://​mixxx.org/​manual/​latest/​en/​chapters/​preferences.html#​sound-api|sound APIs]].+On GNU/Linux, running Mixxx from a GUI menu or from the launcher icon automatically suspends PulseAudio while Mixxx is running so Mixxx can use your sound card with ALSA directly.

 On Windows, the recommended ASIO sound API typically requires that only one program uses a sound card at a time.
