OK. I'll see what I can do.

But this basically only the "visualization" part - the GUI. 
As far as I understood from Walts mail, we ALSO need fixes on the mixer_alsa9.cpp.
Record channels are not created by the mixer backend (mixer_alsa9.cpp), is this correct?

Shudder. My nforce2 sound chipset is looking very "normal" in KMix, so nforce3 is probably a complete new design.

What part of the architecture are you referring to (probably this is the same question as above: GUI and/or Mixer backend ?
