OK, had a look at http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Asoundrc.  
Seems I need to use a slave.

Is this correct?

pcm_slave.sl3 {
     pcm "hw:1,0"
     format S16_LE
     channels 2
     rate /44100 /
pcm.complex_convert {
     type plug
     slave sl3

Not sure exactly what S16_LE.  Cant find a list of the formats. Or is 
this the format of the card, not the format I want.

Not against using jack but only if I have to.  It seems more complex and 
I am very new to al this.
