The question to be asked is : what sound server do you use?
Because, I recommand pulseaudio (the default sound server for lots of other
distros). And in it's latest version, they did a screencast with just that,
an on-the-fly (after-the-fact) add of an usb sound device plugged in, to
which it's possible to transfer already playing stream ....
I found it amazing ...
