   I think you want something like:

alias snd-card-0 snd-CARD_0
options snd-CARD_0 index=0 
alias snd-card-1 snd-CARD_1
options snd-CARD_1 index=1 

I don't have this set up right now but I've used it in the past with 2
audio cards and a USB MIDI interface where I wanted to know that each
time I booted I'd always get the cards in a known order.

Hope this helps,
