The "Korg Pandora Mini" is no audio interface, according to both your
lsusb dump and the Korg website. The device is described as
"Ultra-compact pocket-size multi-effect designed for both guitar and
bass "[1] and exposes only a MIDI interface on USB, presumably for
controlling internal parameters, dumping the configuration etc. It
specifically not an USB audio interface, and hence it can not be used
in a way that you wanted to.
