With card_1 I meant the first capture card, not the first soundcard.  But I 
don't really think that makes any difference; you'll have two combos of 
<<capture card + connected soundcard>>.  And if one of those combos lack 
full-duplex, it will not be able to playback (or -worse- it could fsck up the 
ongoing recording when selecting it for playback).
