If you're looking for alsamixer, it's in alsa-utils.  ALSA should just
work out of the box for most users who skip the Desktop Environment
during the installation (and therefore do not have to circumvent pulse).

The only steps required for most people are to install alsa-utils,
run alsamixer, unmute the master channels, and raise the volume of the
master channels above zero.
