About the vu-meter, I've found a method to do it, but I don't like it very much because it must use an external ALSA plugin (.so) and a asoundrc modification. Will study further.
About the little bug, fixed in beta2 (about to be released). - Jul 03 2007
kalsamix stores and loads volumes in its own configuration file, not in any ALSA-wide config file.
About the option, I've clarified it in beta 2, which is about to be released.

Probably a mangled configure.in, will fix in 1.0.0.

Plus kamix is directly based on ALSA, and not on KDE's mid-layer. They do are different.... - Mar 26 2007

Well, you can define what is your master control of your card (go into settings pages, and use "Master" to set what it is).
Then, I know, there's some bug that prevents kamix for storing settings. I'm investigating this, among with working on some new features. Stay tuned for 0.6.2...
Thanks and bye - Feb 21 2005
I'm planning anyway to implement a free grouping, so that you can decide which elements to see "together" and possibily show/hide them on the fly. This requires a not-so-little bit of work, so it will take some time... but stay tuned... - Nov 18 2004
This is an old question... kamix and kmix LOOK similar, but they are built upon completely different basis. They can hardly share something, beside the basic ideas.
Kamix is based on ALSA directly, and gets rid of mid-layer as aRts, and it can be useful for those for which kmix is not completely functional (for example, kmix does not handle - so far - enumerated items).
After all, it's a matter of choice :) - Sep 14 2004

Will be fixed in the next release - Jul 07 2004
I'll cope with those in the next releases. - Jul 02 2004
As I said elsewhere, kamix started one year ago, when kmix were obviously "poorer" than today, and when kamix had its own reasons to be. Now it could be pointless for many, but there are cases in which direct use of ALSA may be useful.

Quick fix: replace line #26 in src/kalsa.cpp:
and recompile, it should go fine.
This will be fixed in the next round. - Jun 25 2004

These differences come out since kamix is based directly on ALSA, while kmix uses aRts as abstraction layer. Using ALSA directly can provide more accurate details about controls and abilities.
About choosing the short view control, I think this is a very good idea, will be done.
So it may be worth... al least for some time:) - Jun 18 2004
Keep on... - Apr 29 2004
