You'd have to have xinerama enabled in X, firstly, and the application would
need to be xinerama aware in order to place it's windows correctly. Not many
apps (sound or otherwise) that I'm know of are this aware.
If you're running with xinerama switched on it's a simple process to drag the
mixer window to a different screen though, I do this all the time in Ardour,
and in fact Ardour does remember the window settings correctly, at least it
does for me.
As far as KDE goes, once xinerama is enabled in X11, there are some options in
KDE (version 3+) related to xinerama you might want to play with.
