that isn't the best example since the gsm module is hardwired to the
codec which is wired to the mic. This audio path doesn't touch the

There are still be some needs for low latency, like recording a gsm
call but even that isn't between two audio clients... the recorder
would probably be talking to the pulse daemon which is going right to
