Pipewire is the newest audio system for Linux. In most cases, it can 
successfully replace the alsa front ends, as well as jack and 
pulseaudio. There is also a second and supposed to be more comprehensive 
session manager for it called wireplumber, but I'm having the same 
conflicts using wireplumber when multiple users, in my case lightdm and 
my regular user, attempt to access the device at the same time. I will 
note that I only see this problem on Arch. My Fedora system doesn't seem 
to conflict in the way I mentioned, and it's been using pipewire since 
before pipewire was cool, at least from what I read.
