a cosmetic issue: if i import a stereo .flac or .ogg file, the imputs of 
the new track will be connected like left-side-to-second-soundcard-input 
and right-side-to-the-first-soundcard-input. so the track input is 
labeled 2/1.
if i import an .wav file, or simple create a stereo channel, the inputs 
are labeled like 1/2.
