Thanks, that clarifies matters. I've installed a better mixer app that
is doing nearly what I want now. Oddly, the input levels only seem to be
adjustable within a range (eg. I can only adjust the level so far down
with the mixer, not all the way to zero). But it's good enough for my
current purposes (testing, with a crappy soundcard).
