This makes no sense BTW. Unmuted everything? You're *recording*, so what
you want to do in alsamixer is to select your external usb audio card

channel of your choice (space bar).

But I assume you have arrived at this crucial result in one way or another.

I did.  Besides, the USB card does not even work with headphones: when
headphones are plugged into it, no sound is heard from them.

If you were running pulseaudio, you would merely select the headphones. I suggest you use USB headphones. They are cheap. Works a charm. Ric
