This is probably the wrong mailing list for asking such questions, but
wouldn't it be possible to shift / redefine the "Master" mixer control
to be responsible for all six channels using an own asoundrc
configuration? I already read some howtos regarding alsa configurations
but it seems to be really hard stuff. Maybe someone in this mailing list
is literate with alsa configuration and could tell me how to do this?
