If you're talking about the alsamixer you run from the console then TAB
will switch from ouput (mute/vol levels) to input (most of the stuff we
want) to all. Otherwise alsamixergui gnome-miser and kde mixer all seem to
have the same stuff, but it's confusing as the labelling and way the
switches are organized changes.
