i'm quite sure i figured it out the "long" way.  However, it was quick and
dirty, and should work on any system I think...

1) I installed, xmms (or any program to play audio I think would work)
2) ran a short shell script as follows:

cd $MODULES_DIRECTORY  # /modules on 4.x and /boot/kernel on 5.x
for f in snd_*; do kldload $f; done #this loads every possible sound module

3) play music with xmms
4) while music is playing execute the following:

for f in snd_*; do kldunload $f; done #this unloads all snd modules,
however the one in use fails :)

5) kldstat # to view current loaded modules.

I'm sure I could just have looked it up somewhere, but I'm backwards.
