Well done, thank you for your time and effort. So my wild guess was
right, then? There was a clue in that the USB device was being
allocated as sound card 1, with no sound card 0. As I posted a few
weeks ago, it's probably a year or more since I had any sound
trouble, and I'd forgotten that the count was 0-based. But it's good
that there's an easier way than buying another sound card.

I'm pushed for time right now, but I'll try this later today.
