have tried remaking the devices more than once (and again just now),
but it hasn't helped. permissions are rw- for all users.
unfortunately, i don't have an *.raw files to try so i simply tried to
cat somefile.wav > /dev/dsp (and also to /dev/audio)
both produce sound a screeching sound reminiscent of japanese noise bands :)

snd_maestro_load="YES" --versus-- snd_maestro3_load="YES"
doesn't seem to make any difference.
i appreciate all your help. any other suggestions you might have are very welcome.
there MUST be some way to get this working.
also, i am wondering about this...
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
pcm0: <ESS Technology Maestro-2E> at I/O port 0x1400 irq 5 (4p/0r/4v channels duplex)
note the 4p/0r/4v. to my knowledge this means that there are 4 channels for playing,
channels and 0 (ie. none) available for recording.
am i misinterpreting this? is anyone able to record with this card on FBSD 4.8?
