[ubuntu-studio-users] Pulse Audio? Where is alsamixer?

Alright, got Ubuntu Studio 13.10 installed on my ext. usb drive, on my 
HP Pavillion desktop, now trying to configure for functionality.

Wondering, first of all, if Pulse audio can be safely turned off...?  & 
if so, what is the best way to do this?

Second, though alsa appears to be installed, when I call up 'alsamixer' 
from terminal... I get:

"cannot open mixer: No such file or directory"

I installed a gui alsa mixer (gnome alsamixer)... but it crashes after I 
start it

Third, having trouble getting sound IN from my Native Instruments 
Komplete Audio 6 usb 3.0 device... (presently, using s/pidf connect from 
my Yamaha 01v mixer). I can get sound from /in/ the CPU, i.e., radio 
streams, audio cd's, etc.. & I figured out how to get midi IN & OUT... 
so any one with such experience, & insite, your suggestions would be 
more than welcome.
