You won't find any other software that can do the kind of "export" that
JACK makes possible.

As for Ardour combined with the ALSA backend, you're just wrong. On
Windows, using the ASIO driver, almost all DAWs require exclusive access to
the audio interface, and so you cannot use any other software while the DAW
is running. Some DAWs allow you to specify that they only use specific
channels of the device, leaving others free for other software. That can be
complex too, and doesn't help if you have only a stereo audio interface.
