Does no one use USB audio?

As I noted in the snipped portion of my original post, I assume the cause of the 
problem is that I don't know some configuration trick or am using an app which 
does obsolete analog. I can't file a bug saying "nothing wrong but me" so if 
someone with working USB audio (webcam or TV card, same issue with both), I 
would appreciate a pointer.

Original post said:

What I did on older versions of Fedora was to use the recording
capability of xawtv. So I started that with device /dev/video2 (the cam
with audio) and it gives no audio. It keeps looking for /dev/dsp
(analog) even though docs say xawtv knows how to handle the new v4l2
audio inputs. The only option for audio is -C and that is looking for an
analog device.

So is there a trick to make this work, or is there another *simple*
application to do a similar thing?
Ever since audio went digital it has been increasingly hard for non-guru
users to use, and Pulse just adds to the complexity.
Tell me there's a simple application which just works the way they used to.
