i don't think that is possible because once something is plugged into a sound jack thats the path of the sound.

I never heard of that happening. You can play two different sounds at the same time by opening up multiple players, but they'll all come out through your main speakers or your headphones--if you have those plugged in.

I don't think you can select which program uses which sound output. The sound card software only allows you to choose between which output you want to use.

Ronco -
You can have headphones connected to the headphone jack and still use the speakers to hear sound. The output is selectable in the sound card's software.

It's possible, however your software needs to support this feature.

Software that supports this feature is usually recording and production software.

Two examples of software that I use i with multiple input / output support are Ableton Live and Sony Soundforge.
