I don't know whether it's possible or not. I have no experience of
ndiscvt(8). Personally, I don't like to use Windows drivers as it
severely limits the driver to x86 based architectures. I think Linux
supports wide-ranges of audio hardwares than that of FreeBSD.
If we can pour our time on reading Linux driver we would get better
audio support, IMO.
