In jessie alsa-base has precisely two files:


It is doubtful either of these is invovloved in the production of sound.



  * The still-useful bits of alsa-base (kmod configuration files) have moved
    to kmod itself in version 17-1. There is nothing of use left in
    alsa-base, so for jessie, it'll just become a dummy package that helps
    cleaning up its old conffiles. It will be dropped after the jessie

You obviously have some issue with sound but it is impossible to discover
what it is.
