Ah, so you want the USB audio input to be sent directly to your PCI
sound card's output?
Hmm, this is not supported. It's a much requested feature that we
allow direct connections between sources and sinks
However, so far nobody worked on that. THis is much more complex than
it might seem sicne your sound card's clocks might deviate. It's
doable but not trivial. Code that handles clock deviations has already
been implemented in module-combine, so this could be used as a blueprint.
