Hello Doug,

you can adjust your mixer settings with alsamixer or amixer. There is a
init-script called alsa-utils which stores the mixer settings as you
shutdown your system an restores them on boot.
You can also manually store the mixer setting with:

alsactl store

> Thanks for the info. 

I hope this helps.
