At first, I request you to send output from:

This is expected. My drivers basically have no ALSA control interface 
because it's just for PCM/MIDI functionality (we call it as 
'streaming'). Currently developers in related projects follow this policy.

If you need to control internal mixer, please join in FFADO project.

So you can test my drivers with ALSA PCM applications like 
aplay/arecord, jackd and so on.

This is expected. Currently PulseAudio fails to detect devices which my 
drivers supports. So we need to load PulseAudio's ALSA sink/source 
modules manually.
  $ pactl load-module module-alsa-sink device=hw:UFX1604
  $ pactl load-module module-alsa-source device=hw:UFX1604
