Onboard Audio (hda_intel) for Mic Input and Soundcard (ca0106) for Audio Output?


Greetings,

I have a Creative Audigy Sound Blaster SE and unfortunately the drivers for this particular card don't support mic input. Its chipset is ca0106, and the drivers are implemented through ALSA. My distro is Slackware 12.2.

I'd like to simultaneously use my onboard audio controller (hda_intel) for mic input, and continue to use my soundcard for audio output. It's necessary for both to work at the same time so that I can use programs like Skype.

How might I accomplish this?

In order to make my soundcard the default audio device, I created a file "sound" in /etc/modprobe.d/ with a single line:

Code:
options snd_hda_intel index=1
Here is some more info on the cards:

Code:
bash-3.1$ aplay -L

I solved the issue by creating aliases to my audio devices /etc/modprobe.d/sound. It now reads the following:

Code:
alias snd-card-0 snd_hda_intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd_hda_intel
alias snd-card-1 snd_ca0106
alias sound-slot-1 snd_ca0106
