If you have multiple sound cards in your pc  and want to set one as the default card you can do this like this.

With the command:

lsmod | grep snd

we can find out which sound drivers are loaded. On my pc it is sndhdaintel and snd_virtuoso.

If you want set the priority of the virtuoso (Xonar DX) higher you edit the file:

vim /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

I set the index of the viruoso device to zero so that it is the default device:

options snd_virtuoso index=0
options snd_hda_intel index=1
