Basically "alsactl init" then "alsactl restore" should initialize to
a sane state. But in the case of usb-audio, many things are still
The usb-audio driver doesn't initialize the mixer states unlike other
drivers, and alsactl init seems assuming that the mixers are all muted
/ cleared when it's called. So, partly a problem of alsactl init.
