Some of them are related to each other and the relationships seem to vary between sound hardware; you need to have this one and that one both active to get input, but not this other one over here.  Experiment with the levels and you'll find out which combination works.

Thanks much.

After playing around with alsamixer for

I also got some major hum.
Should I chalk that up to a shoddy headset?

I really need that nap I mentioned.
Good night.
