First, you can check if the alsa module related to your interface is loaded with a lsmod |grep snd
If so, you can unload it manually with (as root) rmmod the_alsa_module

Note that this will not be persistent after a reboot.

(I think you're running a KXstudio which is a debian based distro, so the following should work
that way but you may want to double-check with falktx)
If you want to make it persistent, you may want to add a xzu-blacklist.conf file
in the /etc/modprobe.d/ folder. This file should contains :

blacklist the_alsa_module

Hope that helps
