For this purpose you can safely drop the ,0 part, it refers to sub devices. Might be relevant if you add a device with say 4 midi ports, or some special sound cards.

There is a way to bind a device to an index, maybe we can do that some day. I don't think M2496 and M2496_1 will ever change place, AFAIK they get sorted on the PCI address. So if you consistently refer to them as hw:M2496 and hw:M2496_1 you ought to avoid all hassles with this "issue". But if one day you have the kick/snare on the OH tracks and vice versa, then you know what happened

I could investigate if there is some way to assign index based on the card type and pci address, it might be possible but I've never come across it.
