You don't specify the exact PA sink/source in .asoundrc, you just
specify "use pulse" there. See
Then your alsa app should connect to pulse, and you use pavucontrol (or
possibly your PulseAudioManger) to move its stream to the "tunnel..."
source. If you have module-stream-restore loaded, it'll remember that
source for future invocations of your app.
