Pulseaudio -- almost there

Trying to do/make a pulseaudio profile for multichannel sound cards so they don't "look" like a surround card in the channel names..
(also see here on why surround channel names suck when creating custom pulseaudio scripts)

Trying to understand this page: https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/Backends/ALSA/Profi...

# untested.. but this is CLOSE to how one can change the channel names in Pulseaudio for XR18 (and eventually X32)
# create a udev rule file in /etc/udev/rules.d/90-behringer-pulseaudio.conf:
#SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1397", ATTRS{idProduct}=="00d4", ENV{PULSE_PROFILE_SET}="behringer-xr18.conf"
#
# -or- add to USB section/lib/udev/rules.d/90-pulseaudio.rules:
#ATTRS{idVendor}=="1397", ATTRS{idProduct}=="00d4", ENV{PULSE_PROFILE_SET}="behringer-xr18.conf"
#
# by default channels have the names:
# front-left,front-right,rear-left,rear-right,front-center,lfe,side-left,side-right,aux0,aux1,aux2,aux3,aux4,aux5,aux6,aux7,aux8,aux9
#
# when then REALLY should have the names:
# ch01, ch02, ch03, ch04, ch05, ch06, ch0 , ch08, ch09, ch10, ch11, ch12, ch13, ch14, ch15, ch16, aux
#
#put this file in /usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/profile-sets/behringer-xr18.conf
