The Audigy is an NX 2
At work, I connect to a Lexicon Omega USB sound box - it works 
perfectly - could I be trying to run the Audigy with Lexicon 
drivers? I've found references in other distros to forcing the 
Alsa drivers to reload each time I boot - the commands didn't

According to my Soundcard Detection GUI when booted at home, it's 
seeing the Audigy - at work, opening the same GUI shows it has 
detected my Lexicon
