Sure, I just used it yesterday.

Well, alsamixer draws a few vertical sliders with ascii characters.
On the bottom of the sliders, you first have the label for the slider,
and then a number indicating its volume.  The currently active
slider will be indicated by less-than and greater-than signs to the left
and right of its label.  If you turn cursor tracking off (to prevent unwanted
moves), you can position the display at the last two lines I just
explained above.  You move from slider to slider by pressing left/right
cursor keys, and you increase/decrease volume with up/down cursor

aumix is nice too, but IIRC its for OSS only.
