It seems that whichever application (that uses audio) I launch first works fine, but no other applications can then output sound.
[EDIT]It's actually Wine when I start up Wine if there is no audio app running it will output sound, however starting up Banshee, for example, Banshee will not play. Neither will Audacious. However, shut down Wine and both Banshee and Audacious will both play, together if I want. Restart the Wine app with one of the players running and Wine will have no sound output.
I'm using Linux Mint 13 Maya MATE x64 I tested this with Cinnamon x64 and had identical results. I also run installs of Mint Katya i386 and Xubuntu 12:04 (i386) which both work fine. My next test is with the Maya MATE i386 version and see if this is Maya x64 issue or simply a Maya issue.
If anyone else knows more by all means move this to the appropraite sub-forum.
How can I go about getting the audio from all my apps and Wine to play nice together?
