pasuspender – Temporarily suspend PulseAudio
pasuspender [options] — PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS …]
pasuspender is a tool that can be used to tell a local PulseAudio sound
server to temporarily suspend access to the audio devices, to allow
other applications access them directly. pasuspender will suspend
access to the audio devices, fork a child process, and when the child
process terminates, resume access again.
Make sure to include — in your pasuspender command line before passing
the subprocess command line (as shown above). Otherwise pasuspender
itself might end up interpreting the command line switches and options
you intended to pass to the subprocess.
