## Can I use PulseAudio to playback music on two sound cards simultaneously?
-Yes! Use `module-combine` for that.

This will combine the two sinks `output0` and `output1` into a new sink combined. Every sample written to the latter will be forwarded to the former two. PulseAudio will make sure to adjust the sample rate of the slave device in case it deviates from the master device. You can have more than one slave sink attached to the combined sink, and hence combine even three and more sound cards.

-This is mostly identical to the previous example. However, this time we manually specify the channel mappings for the sinks to make sure everything is routed correctly, and disable remixing so that the slaves only get the correct subset of the combined channel map. The `remix` flag for `module-combine` is new in PulseAudio 16.0, so this example won't work with older versions.

Please keep in mind that PulseAudio will constantly adjust the sample rate to compensate for the deviating quartzes of the sound devices. This is not perfect, however. Deviations in a range of 1/44100s (or 1/48000s depending on the sampling frequency) can not be compensated. The human ear will decode these deviations as minor movements (less than 1cm) of the positions of the sound sources you hear.
