Thanks for the reply.

If I connect alsa_pcm:capture_1 or _2 to qaRecord:in_0 or in_1, then 
something shows up in the level monitor in qaRecord, but hovers down at 
-80dB and doesn't change regardless of the input.

In Ardour: I start a new project, add an new track "Audio 1", click the 
button "INPUT" which gives me "in 1" or "in 2", so I choose "in 1". 
Then, press track's RECORD button and it turns pink.  Then press record 
button, press play and send sound into mic and line-in.  This does not 
seem to produce anything.
