With alsa-lib version 1.1.7 installed, the music in Old School Runescape does not work. The sound effects do work. They are supposed to be two separate audio streams if you look in pavucontrol. With 1.1.7 only one of the streams shows up. This happens regardless of Java version (I tried OpenJDK 8, 10, and Oracle 11), and with Runelite and the official OSRS client (unix-runescape-client in AUR). Downgrading to 1.1.6 immediately fixed the issue.
This task depends upon

Alsa-lib 1.1.7 breaks a lot more, including Audacious. Could this be the same issue? Upstream has patched this, for details:

If not ^ will need another bug report.

I can confirm that;a=commitdiff;h=b420056604f06117c967b65d43d01536c5ffcbc9 fixes the problem for me. This is the PKGBUILD I used (same as the normal one just added in the commit patch), sound and music function for me in the client.

For anyone interested, I made the `alsa-lib-audacity-pulseaudio-fix` AUR package, it's basically alsa-lib with the patch applied.

It fixes the problems I've been having with Audacity (not recognising pulseaudio devices)

Sorry for the delay folks and thank you for debugging it. I pushed a new alsa-lib version with the patch to [testing]. Please check that alsa-lib-1.1.7-2 works as expected.

alsa-lib-1.1.7-2 working for me.
