Did you try to compile Open Sound System from ports? I have some Realtek 
crap and it worked only with OSS. I think that many more devices are 
supported in 7.0 so you might want to upgrade the system. Check the 
hardware notes.
 For the list of supported devices by OSS you can check Open Sound 
System web-site.
They also have a binary package that you can install with pkg_add 
utility. Package is sometimes updated before the port!
