Will this act upon Pulse?
Pulse (the last option) was what was muted.

You used to hear nothing but problems with Linux sound, but that seems to have mostly tapered off. I was thinking that ALSA and Pulse did the same thing, but now that I look at it again that's not quite true.

Short and interesting:

The particular point in the wikipedia article that is relevant for Jeff is that JACK is a replacement for Pulse (if I'm reading it right) and is preferred for professional audio. Perhaps one day when you feel like tempting fate... :-)
