[PlanetCCRMA] How to allow multiple applications to output audio at once...

I currently have a problem with running XMMS and Psi.
Basically I want Psi to be able to output sounds to indicate events, 
while XMMS is running.
The current situation: if I run them through OSS or Alsa, Psi seems to 
queue the sounds,
then at the end of the XMMS track, the sounds are played at which point 
XMMS complains that it can't access the sound device.
Has anyone else had this problem, and/or found a solution? Would Jack 
enable me to do what I want, or have I got Alsa configured wrongly?
