ALSA:default is what is set as default by your system, so in essence
it says, "leave it to the system"

Nowadays you have a lot of audio devices in your system:
- the on board audio device, possibly in analog and in digital
- the on board hdmi video device, possibly mono and stereo
- your analog capturecard(s) one for each tuner
- add-on hdmi video device
- add-on audio device
- the build in mic in your camera
and possibly more and all possibly in several variations
