tony at thor:~$ man -k mixer | egrep ALSA
alsamixer (1)        - soundcard mixer for ALSA soundcard driver, with ncurses interface
amixer (1)           - command-line mixer for ALSA soundcard driver
gnome-alsamixer (1)  - ALSA sound mixer for GNOME

I'd guess amixer is what you're looking for.

Yours Tony
