Exactly why you need that slave definition I'm not sure either, but it seems
you do. Also note that /tmp/pcm.out will be headerless PCM and is recreated
for individual opens. I don't believe there's an append mode or anything
(and you'd need to make sure that everyone plays the same format) so not
toot sure if this is what you need to have a catch all audio-sink...
