[SOLVED]How to disable sound cards

Is it possible to disable sound cards so they don't show up in pactl?
I am using an external DAC as my primary sound driver. I have other built-in sound cards that came both from my motherboard and my graphics card and I just want to minimise the noise in my sound interfaces and just wondering if it is possible to disable the ones I don't need.

Re: [SOLVED]How to disable sound cards

The pulse profile logistics has built-in support for that, set the profile of the undesired card to off, either in the configuration tab of pavucontrol for example or via

pactl set-card-profile $cardname off

where $cardname is the name as given in the relevant listing of "pactl list cards".
