[ubuntu-studio-users] Fwd: no sound at all after switch to ubuntustudio

thank you for your reply!
obviously i was no clear enough in stating, that i have been using jack
for years together with pulse tied to it. And it went fine for years.
And i cannot do without, as e. g. audacity by far does not do the job
for me, and i am a happy user of e. g. ardour 3 for quite a while yet.
So please believe that what i was trying to describe is something i am
experienced in. As you hint to as well, i cannot understand why the
thing is broken now suddenly.
Obviously i am left clueless by something which reasonably *should*
work. So please help me by hinting to configuration files or the like,
where something might be needed to be changed.
Which is why i told about the strangeness observed within alsamixer output.
Any ideas somebody?
