I'm not sure I can answer... running in ubuntu-land these days. The
package I have with envy24control, is alsa-tools-gui. mudita24 is actually
an updated version of the same thing with nicer metering and some other
less cosmetic changes. It is possible to make all those changes from
alsamixer.. but as you say harder

If you atre using h/w and h/w 1, you want to set them to "Digital". Then
you would set Mutli left to full and multi 1 to right full (these are
ardours ourputs). Then hit F4 to go to capture. go over to H/W Multi and
set the level where you want to monitor the input. (this assumes one mic
in input one) Using F5 (all) seems like a nice answer, but ends up
confusing things in this case.

Ya, envy24control is lots easier. I've been looking at QASmixer also,
still painful but nicer than alsamixer.
