Non exclusive sound device access!!

Hi,
I was wondering if any of you guys know of way to make applications that use sound device on linux to access it in a "non-exclusive manner", the aim is to be able to use more than one application that requires the sound device.
Thanks

SND_FM801(4)						   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 					      SND_FM801(4)

NAME
snd_fm801 -- Forte Media FM801 bridge device driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device sound device snd_fm801 Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): snd_fm801_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The snd_fm801 bridge driver allows the generic audio driver, sound(4), to attach audio devices based on the Forte Media FM801 chipset. This is a common chipset found in various parts used by OEM manufacturers. HARDWARE
The snd_fm801 driver supports audio devices based on the following chipset: o Forte Media FM801 SEE ALSO
sound(4) HISTORY
The snd_fm801 device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.2. AUTHORS
This manual page was written by Joel Dahl <joel@FreeBSD.org>. BUGS
The Forte Media FM801 chipset is a sort of PCI bridge, not an actual sound controller, making it possible to have soundless support. One problem is that both chipsets, with and without sound support, use the same PCI ID. This makes it impossible to determine which one is installed. BSD
