Made me a suitiable .asoundrc file and the crossfade etc. now works 
nicely. Thanks for the adivce.

While dmix is enabled on the default/1st card in my distro, it is not 
for 2nd, 3rd etc. hense why I got into this trouble.

I've raised a bug in my distro about this so hopefully it can be fixed 
in a universal way.

Thanks for all your input/advice in the issue guys.
