Well, adding the exclamation mark
does not work either. It may look trivial, but changing the default card
while preserving the fine-tuned device definitions the for each card in
/usr/share/alsa/pcm/* and /usr/share/alsa/cards/* has been an
unattainable peak for me so far. Neither have I been able to google it
anywhere. IMO there must be a simple way to do this key change.
Thanks a lot for suggestion and hints.
