You need to do this from a terminal::

sudo adduser (yourusername) dialout
Log out and then log back in.
Open Configure > Soundcard, make sure you only have PulseAudio checked,
in the Right Channel tab only Mono Audio output should be checked. Cick
Save and close.
Now again from a terminal::
sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
it will be installed in your media tab.
Open Pulse Audio Volume Control, the rigblaster should be listed as a
usb codec. If so, make sure that is what you select for sound control.
Adjust the sliders to max, hopefully it will all work.
Make sure there is not a menu item in the 718 for data jack.
