Trouble with M-audio Audiophile USB Sound Card

I have the Audiophile USB card installed along with Alsa and several Gstream 
plugins.  The card can play the sin wave sound when USB Audio Device is 
selected.  It won't play the sin wave if Alsa is selected. Even when USB sound 
is selected though, the only thing that makes a noise is the test.  If any of 
the other audio sounds are attempted, no sound is made.

At the command line, the Audiophile does not work with amixer so apparently it 
has no onboard mixing.  Also, it seems to want to be addressed at the hardware 
level.  My guess is that some sort of specification has to be placed in 
alsa.conf but have no idea what it might be.

Any advice and/or assistance on using this card would be appreciated.
