Naming audio devices in Alsa
 
Hi
When I was using Fedora I could set sounds cards by the name shown when either aplay -l or /proc/asound/cards
shows
0 [SB ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB
HDA ATI SB at 0xfe024000 irq 16
1 [CX8801 ]: CX88x - Conexant CX8801
Conexant CX8801 at 0xf8000000
2 [HDMI ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfdffc000 irq 19
3 [M66 ]: ICE1712 - M Audio Delta 66
M Audio Delta 66 at 0xcf00, irq 21

Ie in a jack line:-
$JACKD -R -P 50 -t 9999 -d alsa -r 48000 -C hw:M66 -P hw:M66 -n4 -p 512 -s &

In debian this just drops to the default card.
I've tried following the naming as per the asoundrc wiki, but not getting anywhere fast, as the name used
refers to the card numbers which changes on boot up.
Has anyone using named multiple sound card like to post their .asoundrc file so I can see the correct syntax,
please.

Thanks

Just in case... does this help?

http://www.jackaudio.org/device_naming

I mean, it seems that you can reference the card by appending "-d hw:M66"
when using the alsa backend.

"man jackd" should provide additional information on its usage.

If it does not work, you can open a bug report. Unless I am reading it
wrong (something which I don't discard), that option is documented in the
manual and should do what it says :-)
