We now changed the selection of Essensio Card to incorporate the kernelchange. Please try updating to the newest beta, selecting “none” in the sound card setting and selecting your card again. In this selection, the system will need a little time to adjust all changes, including ones in the ALSA library. So please be patient as the process might take some minutes.
Also, have you tried just selecting the default sound output with a completely new image to see whether the card gets recognized and how it’s handled by the system?
