I have never used envy24control, as i only got old Creative hw :(
But i managed to get this info out of the app:

envy24control: invalid option -- ?
usage: envy24control [-c card#] [-D control-name] [-o num-outputs] [-i 
num-inputs] [-p num-pcm-outputs] [-s num-spdif-in/outs] [-v] [-f 
profiles-file] [profile name|profile id]
        -c, --card      Alsa card number to control
        -D, --device    control-name
        -o, --outputs   Limit number of analog line outputs to display
        -i, --input     Limit number of analog line inputs to display
        -p, --pcm_output        Limit number of PCM outputs to display
        -s, --spdif     Limit number of spdif inputs/outputs to display
        -v, --view_spdif_playback       shows the spdif playback 
	channels in the mixer
        -f, --profiles_file     use file as profiles file

So envy24control -f <profile> is probably what you want.
