Current sound system status?

there's a jack output for aRts available. Though I've not seen many 
distributions include it. So if you really want aRts to be able to output to 
jack then you probably have to compile aRts yourself.

The other thing you might try is to let both aRts and jack output to a ALSA 
dmix device. I heard it should work for jack now (though I didn't test it 
myself and I'd expect it to perform worse than with direct hw access).
