It is for me. I run some audio software that I do not want interrupted
while it is running. So, I use pavucontrol to turn it off to pulse and
make it available only to alsa. Then, I can directly configure, send
commands to, and use the sound device, ignored by pulse. As near as I
can tell, it is still available in audacity, as well.
My use case for pure alsa is
video grabbing of VHS tapes.
Sound is captured at alsa level, I do not want any pulseaudio in the middle.
