I don't know about the second problem, but the first could be caused
by DRC (dynamic range compression) -- those event sounds are short
enough that it mightn't trigger for those.

To check if this is the case, look for the "DRC Switch" slider in your
ALSA mixer program and either crank it up to 100% or "mute" it to
disable DRC.
