Thank you Pablo, it does solve this issue :).
I wonder what will happen, if I make my 2 Terratec EWX 24/96 cards 1 virtual card, anyway, today I just tested to get 1 of the 2 cards ready to work.
I tested analog stereo for KMPLayer set up to use PA and the sound preferences were set up to analog stereo output and simultaneous output for both cards, while I just tested one of the cards, but the sound was ok :).
Anyway, before this test Movie Player crashed and there are issues for the website of a friend, http://achimjaroschek.com/music.html, while sound was ok for his YouTube channel, e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mu6uFtCASYc.
This does the trick:
$ cat /usr/share/alsa/cards/ICE1712.conf
# Configuration for the ICE1712 (Envy24) chip
@args [ CARD ]
#### fix PA issue ####
Unfortunately there are still many issues and today there are some new issues. I don't have those issues with 64 Studio 3.0 beta (Hardy) and 3.3 alpha (Karmic) amd64.
I'm still in a production with recordings Achim and I made, so there's no time to fix Ubuntu Studio right now. I'm doing the production using 64 Studio 3.3 alpha and even if the software works without issues, it's still tricky and time consuming and there always is the risk of a crash, so I can't use Linux for recording Achim and friends or other serious musicians who are short in time, only if there's a lot of time, it can be used for post processing. IMO for Ubuntu Studio it would help to remove desktop stuff like PA from the distro.
This and next month Achim does some concerts in Germany, http://achimjaroschek.com/, certainly I'll be at the concerts in the Ruhrgebiet.
The next 6 month I'll do a job with elementary school kids, but professional musicians, it might be that Linux could be more interesting then.

Again, thank you :). If I should have more time, I'll continue and let you know what happened.
