Add support for pulseaudio #2848
I'm going to close this one as a won't-do, since nobody else has chimed in. The simple answer is that SuperCollider is a project aimed at low-latency/real-time use, and because of that jack is a much better choice than pulseaudio for the general use case. I agree with the OP that it would be also good to make things easy for the casual user, but as I see it we don't have the time or dev power available to make it happen. I would not be opposed to making it available if the necessary changes were submitted as a PR.
Research I used to reach this decision:
There is a line worth researching: there is a portaudio fork with a tight link to the portaudio scene that adds a pulseaudio backend. It should be quite easy to use with SC. I haven't experimented with it yet because the author is still working on recent problem reports. The announcement was quite recently.
