By using snd-ls instead of snd, you can play multiple files properly
using the "rt-snd-play" function in rt-player.scm.
To assign certain channels to files, you can probably easely extend
the "<snd-rt-player>" function with a channel argument, and also
set the first argument for "out" appropriately.

Recording with jack using snd is not working very well, I think.
I think the sndrec program might work, but not snd itself.
Instead you should look at jack_capture:
