Here's my /etc/modules.conf:

alias usb-controller usb-uhci
# --- ALSACONF verion 0.9.0 ---
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-ice1712
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
#alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
#alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
options snd major=116 cards_limit=4 device_mode=0666
options snd-ice1712 index=0
# --- END: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
alias ath0 ath_pci
alias sound-slot-0 snd-ice1712
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

Note that there's nothing at all in modules.conf for the Radium keyboard.
It's simply a MIDI controlling keyboard, it makes no sound on its own, it
would be used simply to control soft synths on the PC.

I'll definitely take a look at this approach, as well as modifying an
asound file.
