order to get to my soundcard's controls, I have to open a terminal and use:

I'd like to use KMix for this. Is this possible?

I don't know if is totally related but could be a start ...
I opened this bug report [1] that ends up in this 2nd bug report [2]
According  Christian Esken [3] will have an option "Volume Overdrive" in
KMix for KDE4.13

Nah, it's not related. My issue is that with KMix I can't get to the mixer controls of my sound card and thus I can't change stereo up-mix settings or change DAC settings. I also can't change the hardware volume (PulseAudio is unfortunately not smart enough at the moment to properly control the modern-style mixer controls, it only supports the legacy mixer control format.)

I can get to them with "alsamixer -c0" (or just "alsamixer" and then press F6 to switch to another device), but well, I like GUIs and was hoping I can do that from within the KMixer UI.
