I'm looking into building a media server that will output to 2 channels. I'd like to use Ubuntu however, if there's a better alternative, I'd be open to using it.

I'd have 2 audio and video cards for output and what I'm interested in knowing is if there's a way to set the audio output to a specific card per application or workspace. Is there an easy way of doing this?

Thank you for any advice you may have.

Install and run pavucontrol, then you can redirect streams on a per-application basis.
