I registered here to just to report on this issue (long time Devuan user).

Thanks to this thread I solved the issue for myself and filed a bug report: … bug=986211

My solution was to do:

pacmd list-cards

(program pacmd is in package pulseaudio-utils)

to find the actual output that I wanted to use (in my case, analogue stereo output on a Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS)

then at the end of /etc/pulse/ I put:

# set-card-profile name-of-card-without-angle-brackets name-of-profile-without-trailing-colon
set-card-profile alsa_card.pci-0000_03_06.0 output:analog-stereo+input:analog-mono

I also recommend installing the package pavucontrol and using the command pavucontrol if something gets accidentally muted.

This seems to be a problem of lack of documentation on setting the default audio profile.
