Well, Audigy is simpler, as it doesn't (as I know) send left signal to
both left and right outputs. In ICE1712 chips, output signal
contribution for an input follow these formulas :

outL = Volume1L * inL + Volume1R * inR;
inR = Volume2L * inL + Volume2R * inR;

There are 4 (four) independent volume sliders for a single stereo
input ! In normal situations (eg stereo cards) Volume1R and Volume2L are
always equal to 0. Otherwise, the stereo image of input signal is

I attach here a screen capture of envy24control which shows how sliders
should be configured to correctly retain stereo image of an input
signal. Please note that PCM L/R notation is replaced by "PCM Out 1" and
"PCM Out 2".
