Maybe. My UCA-202 records fine using Audacity. I couldn't get arecord to 
record anything from it, but I wasn't really trying that hard. When I 
try to record using JACK, JACK fails to start up, reporting something 
about an impossible sample size.

My feeling based on the original poster's info is that his device is 
only marginally supported by ALSA.
