thank you this helped. At least I found that part, but I am stuck again. I 
don't have any idea what alsa_pcm:capture_1 is. That is what appears in 
this window as the input channel. So I looked at alsamixer and put the 
"capture"-bar to 100%, as I thought that could be related, but when I 
play something on the keyboard nothing changes.
So I looked at the output configuration, and there is alsa_pcm:playback_1
This is all cryptic to me.
I am a UNIX/Linux engineer since many years, but feel like a real newbie 
on this subject. I've never been into audio hardware, that might be the 
issue here.


I like kids, but I don't think I could eat a whole one.
