have you correctly set up your /etc/asound.conf file? Alsa is not pulse 
and has to be redirected.

Audacity is another story (cf the pulseaudio perfect setup wiki page). I 
think the only way I have been able to make it work with pulseaudio is 
by compiling it using portaudio v18 (does not work with pulseaudio v19) 
and using the padsp wrapper.
