The snd_uaudio driver provides support for USB audio class devices and USB MIDI class devices. A USB audio device consists of a number of components: input terminals (e.g. USB digital input), output terminals (e.g. speakers), and a number of units in between (e.g. volume control). Refer to the ‘USB Audio Class Specification’ for more information.

The snd_uaudio driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.7.

The PCM framework in FreeBSD, as of this writing, does not handle device un-registrations in a properly abstracted manner, i.e., a detach request is refused by the PCM framework if the device is in use. It is necessary to allow the device un-registration to complete successfully, otherwise the PCM layer will panic.
