The aplay command can determine the correct card and slot to play the sound.

Can I use aplay before configuring /etc/asound.conf or .asoundrc? Or is it necessary to write this configuration before using aplay.


There is a global configuration file, typically /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf, with default settings. In most cases, the default settings will work.
