As I do not know how to do what you want with alsa, I would suggest
trying pulse in debian.
I have not found one authoritative guide to pulse on debian, but the
method I had most success with is essentially the one outlined in many
It basically includes three steps:
1) Install the right packages.
2) Create an asound.conf file.
3) Test and adjust.
Then there are the details. I had more success with the flashplugin from
the debian repository than the one from the debian-multimedia repos and
I also installed a libsdl-pulse package instead of the standard one.
By the way: The gnome-settings-demon currently in experimental now
recommends pulseaudio, and it that stays so, then using pulseauio on
debian may become more well-documented, as it may get installed by
default on future desktop installations.
