Re: writeable /dev/pad0?

It could be that I am misunderstanding what you plan to do here, but AFAIK pad backed audio devices are output only, so stuffing data into the /dev/pad side won't work.

(the "path" is application1 -> /dev/audioN -> pad -> /dev/padN -> application2; it's similar to tty/pty pairs)

But I see that it apparently lists both "playback" and "capture" in my dmesg. Hmm. For compatibility reasons I guess?
