    Are you sure it's not your driver?

    You can change it to use the ALSA drivers, but I think pulse is more current, although they do play together. I haven't studied this subject too much yet, other than getting audio to work properly on my various systems. I run pulse, but can use the alsamixer tool to adjust low-level cruft. IE, to me it is still pretty much a dark hole...

    I use the command-line tool. Run it (alsamixer) in a terminal window (bash shell).
