Sadly, they consider this bug as an enhancement. I have had friends
who had the same hardware with me but they were using another OS. I
remember them being jealous because I had so much more control over
same sound card. It made me proud at the time. I fear that this
disease of oversimplifying will make us forget why we are using Linux.

Try kmix, it always works. You can probably put in on Gnome panel too.
