Yes, I opened up hdspmixer. And yes you have to open it to set volumes other
than 0. Channels 1+2 are working already now, but the other channels don't,
though the volumes are set in the hdspmixer.

I hope that there is anybody out there who has a RME Multiface working and
can tell me how to either configure .asoundrc or how to use the plughw:
command right.

Thanks for your help!
