My problem was not exactly yours but similar. I had a hard time
determining which sound card to select in the xfce4-mixer.
What worked for me:
I have HDA ATI DB and Realtek ALC*. I selected *all* control and turned
them all down and muted them all.
Then I went to the Playback: Sound Card (Internal Audio Analog in my
case). Enabled these controls and had the sound plugin manged this.
Restarted the comp, and managed the volume via the xfce4 plugin. I
muted and then unmuted then turned it up. My sound magically worked
