I had overlooked this detail before.

There is a driver, like Frank said, the snd-usb-audio driver (the one
for 99% of usb audio devices with linux). Does the "skipping sound"
get worse under higher system load? Try larger buffer size settings in
your sound server, and try switching to an RT kernel if you can. Try
booting a dyne:bolic livecd and see how your sound card sounds with
that system (dyne:bolic is designed for pro audio and ships with a
good RT kernel).

If your system is producing crappy sound with one usb soundcard,
switching to another card is probably not what is going to fix it.
