Please note that sometims there are strange effects.  I recently got
my soundcard working this way:

  alias char-major-14 sound
  alias sound-slot-0  sound
  alias sound         esssolo1

This worked with bplay and some wav's, but gcd was unable to load the
sound modules automatically.  Instead I've got

  modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module char-major-6

in /var/log/syslog.  So

  alias char-major-6  sound

helped even if nothing about this was mentioned in Documentation/devices.txt.
May be you check your syslog...

Kind regards
