How to install Alsa Driver

Hi there - I am trying to get a Tascam US-428 going on RPi/Patchbox OS. My goal is to use the US-428 as a midi control surface but for now I’m stuck trying to install the drivers. The RPi is connected to the US-428

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 1604:8000 **Tascam US-428 Audio/Midi Controller (without fw)**

I found this instruction saying to install the Alsa firmware Tascam US 428 for Mint - LinuxMusicians
and these instructions on installing the driver Matrix:Module-usb-usx2y - AlsaProject

But I can’t follow them. How do I install the driver? Thanks! Specifically I don’t know how to create the symbolic link, described here:

Note also that the kernel module **soundcore** has been renamed in Debian kernels >2.6.23 into **snd** . A workaround is to put a symlink at /lib/modules/x.x.xx/kernel/sound/soundcore.ko pointing to **snd.ko**

Use the ln command:

Hope this helps,
