[icecast] FreeBSD - 2 soundcards?

Hello,

does anyone have experience of running two or more sound cards in a FreeBSD
machine?  I'm using liveice/icecast to stream radio stations, and I'd like
to get several in one box.

I realise a BSD list would be a better place for this, but who else but
streaming folk would ever think about multiple sound cards?

After installing a second card, when I makedev snd1, it creates all the
usual devices but ending in a 1, eg. /dev/dsp1, /dev/audio1.  So I think
ahah! I now have dsp and dsp1! But these turn out to be links to the first
devices, eg. /dev/dsp, /dev/audio.

Has anyone ever managed this?

Gavin
