Updated for Lion: Change Audio Output device
Authored by: idStar on Jan 09, '12 06:35:21AM

So, it looks like you got it working? Basically, I opened up the AppleScript editor app, pasted in the script originally posted, and then made my modifications. When you save it, you can save it various formats. By making it save as an "Application", I could target it from things like my Microsoft Keyboard's programmable keys app.

Now, as for changing the name, you must pick a name for the audio device exactly as it appears in your System Preferences. Alternatively, you can ALT-click on the sound icon in the menu bar to see the list of available sound devices you could target. If it's not in that list or you spell it wrong, then of course, you cannot use it.

I ended up using AppleScript editior as you say. I gave up an automator. Its probably trying to make it easier, but the AppleScript editor is more simple in my opinion. Yeah I did have to double check the source name. And now it works!
