in jack it is listed as "hw:tickle" "tickle (hw:4)"

$ zita-a2j -d tickle
ALSA lib pcm.c:2565:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM tickle
Can't open ALSA capture device 'tickle'.

$ zita-a2j -d hw:tickle
Can't open ALSA capture device 'hw:tickle'.

zita-a2j -d hw:tickle -c 1 -r 44100
Starting synchronisation.
