Oh, that's way too easy! Isn't there a way involving dead chickens and

Just tired it and worked just perfectly. Hopefully this <off> will
stick between reboots. Not in the mood to try that just yet.

But, I did start jack after turning off the usb device. Then audacity.
It came up with the option to run via alsa (the old default) which
plays via the pulse speakers and jack which runs the usb interface.
Just perfect! Thanks.
