I've got an onboard soundcard and webcam with a built in mic. I wanted to set the mic as default capture and onboard card for play back. Here is my /etc/asound.conf (also known as ~/.asoundrc)

card names are found from:
Code:

cat /proc/asound/cards


Code:

ctl.!default {
   type asym
         playback.ctl {
                 type hw
                 card ICH5
       device 0
         }
         capture.ctl {
                 type hw
                 card U0x46d0x990
       device 0
         }
 }


You can customize it with your own names and such, but this a outline to follow. I hope this helps someone.
