...or to load devices into specific alsa-slots (hw:0, hw:1...)
Does someone have a nice method to do one of these?
Since I knew of no other method, I tried loading the cards into specific
slots, according to this method found at planetccrma's home page:
alias snd-card-0 snd-CARD_0
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-CARD_0 index=0
alias snd-card-1 snd-CARD_1
options snd-card-1 index=1
options snd-CARD_1 index=1
alias snd-card-N snd-CARD_N
options snd-card-N index=N
options snd-CARD_N index=N
I have two m-audio delta devices and I never found a good way to
configure alsa so they would load in a specific order. There was the
problem of naming, since both cards have the same name.
I think I would prefer the pulseaudio method, which remembers the card
itself, not the alsa slot (I don't know anything about that, to be honest).
Other things to consider is:
More than 5 devices will be used, some of them usb midi (usb midi
devices also appear in alsa sound slots).
Two m-audio delta cards for audio input (8 + 4 inputs), and at least the
sound cards need to always load in the same order with jack.
Is it possible to get jack/alsa to remember the sound cards after reboot?
