Gaura's draft is in branches/work/doc/kmix

I thinky it should be more task oriented, describe use cases, give background 
- simple use case in the system tray
- advanced use cases?
- what are all the strange names? Master, PCM, Mic etc?
- what happens activating these channels?
- where are they usefull (record etc?)
- why to split a channel
- problems like this one I had some time ago:
KMix shows here as default PCM in the systray, I dont know why. One day I had 
No sound any more even if my volume PCM was unmuted and at 100%. Reason was 
that I had accidentially muted the Master channel.
So why do I have PCM in systray but need to unmuted the Master channels
 and set its volume to > 0%?

Please have a look at the old kmix doc, afaik there was some information like 

Christian, please have a look at the draft and review/update it.
