I changed the subject to more accurately describe my problem.

Thanks for the pointer, however this this seems to be a static solution
rather than a dynamic solution.  I attach my USB headset with its sound
card dynamically, so I want to have my different audio applications
choose the sound card for the USB headset when it is made available and
sound card for the external speakers when the headset is not available,
i.e. not plugged in - or at least dynamically choose which card to use.

Don
