Orlando Bassotto <> has implemented support
for audigy cards for FreeBSD, you may want to look at his work first:

It seems that you could add the support to the emuxki(4) driver, in the
same way that he did (emu10k1 driver in FreeBSD). I think the main
differences were in the routing and the new constants and pci ID
for the audigy.
