Do you mean that alsamixer says something about how it's running, or
that playing with the mixer levels in alsamixer leads you to that

Alsamixer just plays with the mixer controls, turning up/down PCM, CD,
or other audio signals, still works even when pulseaudio is on your
system.  You're just adjusting the signals part way through the chain.
