My apologies I didn't read correctly.

For ALSA you can set a order for the devices, e.g.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
# ALSA module ordering
options snd slots=snd_hdspm,snd_ice1712,snd_ice1712

Find the driver names for your cards using hwinfo --sound and then
edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf for all of your three cards.
