With the onboard sound disabled, I get:

Audigy 1 [Unknown] (rev.3, serial:0x5a1102) at 0x4000, irq 16

Shows only Master (Pulseaudio).
If I do alsamixer -Dhw:0 I get all the controls for the Audigy.
If I kill pulseaudio with "pulseaudio -k", then "alsamixer" shows the
Audigy controls, but still no sound.
