Audacious: Problem with Alsa-output

Audacious on Plasma, Kernel 5.9.
I once tried to enable output via Alsa on Audacious 4.0 (qt), but I get an error message:

Alsa-error: sound_pcm_open failed: The device or resource is busy.

However, with DeaDBeeF the Alsa output works.

Is there anything else that needs to be installed?

Output from pacman -Q | grep alsa:

[balder@arch-pc ~]$ pacman -Q | grep alsa
alsa-card-profiles 14.0-1
alsa-firmware 1.2.4-2
alsa-lib 1.2.4-3
alsa-plugins 1:1.2.2-2
alsa-topology-conf 1.2.4-2
alsa-ucm-conf 1.2.4-2
alsa-utils 1.2.4-2
zita-alsa-pcmi 0.3.2-3

Works for me.

pacman -Q | grep alsa
alsa-card-profiles 14.0-1
alsa-firmware 1.2.4-2
alsa-lib 1.2.4-3
alsa-oss 1.1.8-3

I suspect you want pulseaudio-alsa
