The alsa interface

alsa allows access to raw ALSA audio playback and recording devices.

Auto-connect: no

The alsa interface is not auto-connected, in part, because not all hardware will multiplex clients and therefore may block audio. Where direct access to audio devices is not required, it is recommended that snaps use audio-playback and audio-record, as needed, to grant access to the PulseAudio sound server.

This is a snap interface. See Interface management and Supported interfaces for further details on how interfaces are used.
