1.  Ices0 can't read from a sound device.

2.  Even if it could, you can't directly access a sound device like 
/dev/dsp with more than one process.  There are some ways around this 

There's several ways you can deal with this, but probably the simplest way 
is to use darkice which can output both formats at once.
