When you use it, select "Show device selection" from its view menu, and 
(in the right pane) select
  "ht : Card".  It will then let you control the settings for a 
particular sound-card.

It appears to have the ability of selecting the system default (as 
opposed to the default?).

It definitely uses the QT libraries, but I don't know which QT library
