Are you meaning

apt-get install alsa-firmware-loaders?

the short description of this package:

ALSA software loaders for specific hardware
A collection of software loaders for specific hardware:

 cspctl - Sound Blaster 16 ASP/CSP control program
 hdsploader - firmware loader for the RME Hammerfall DSP cards
 mixartloader - firmware loader for Digigram's miXart board sound drivers
 pcxhrloader - firmware loader for Digigram pcxhr compatible soundcards
 sscape_ctl - SoundScape control utility and firmware loader
 usx2yloader - firmware loader for Tascam USX2Y USB soundcards
 vxloader - firmware loader for Digigram VX soundcards

Maybe if you don't know it exists doesn't mean that it actually doesn't.
Synaptic is your friend

Hope It helps,
