Well, not exactly.
This is one of the functionalities of aRTs.
Its main purpose is synthesizing.
When playing files through an arts player like noatun, arts does all the 
filereading, decoding, etc.

That is one fo the problems with arts.
IIRC the arts guys are thinkink about separating sound server and

is used with.
