This sounds strange, it seems that it has a hardware synth but on the
other hand they say that the software voices are limited by the host

Looks like it. Most probably you need to load a soundfont into the card
for it to be useful (I don't know much about how to do it). 

Most probably you should post this to the alsa-users list (unless
somebody at Planet CCRMA knows more about this particular card).
