  No I didn't create an /.asoundrc. Am reading about that now. Its  
part of the Alsa-Wiki.
There is also a blurb about connecting midi to Pd in the same Wiki. I  
hope this works out
The idea of building a new kernel is I must say daunting. Anyway if I  
know with a bit of work
I can get this up and running then okay. In response to the other  
email the card is working
fine for basic things playing back wavefiles at different sample  
rates etc and is listed
named in alsa.conf etc. The only thing that doesn't work is midi I  
can open pd with the -alsa commnand
running in advanced mode at 44100hz no higher.(fine by me) but the  
alsa midi won't connect
(client 128) I'll look at that today.
