It is unreasonable to think of *your* use case as a *common* use case for
ALSA. It is a common use-case for Jack. I don't know of any program doing
all of this on plain ALSA grounds (maybe except for Pd which ironically
doesn't work for me with the ALSA driver but only with Jack.)
Moreover, using Jack is (almost) the only reliable way to get full duplex
audio on some implicit feedback USB interfaces because it implicitly works
around a current (still?) limitation of the ALSA driver.
