Hi,

Are you using pulseaudio?

In this case use pavucontrol. I had the same problem and I could
configure it using this tool.

PAVUCONTROL(1)
                                     PAVUCONTROL(1)

NAME
       pavucontrol - A volume control for the PulseAudio sound server

SYNOPSIS
       pavucontrol

DESCRIPTION
       A simple volume control tool (mixer) for the PulseAudio sound
server. In contrast to classic mixer tools this one
       allows you to control both the volume of hardware devices and
of each playback stream separately. It also allows
       you to redirect a playback stream to another output device
without interrupting playback.

Hope it helps.

Best regards
