OK, very weird. Since I have installed Gentoo, ALSA never die

all channels have been down and muted.

Thanks a lot again.
I blacklisted usb-midi, and now, after a reboot, alsa does not
I just telephoned with a friend, and we found out that the
device was listed in
so the module was always loaded after pluggin in the UM-1S.
I removed the module file manually from the modules directory,
and after a reboot, everything seems to be fine - even my
alsamixer settings are restored!
The presence of usb-midi and snd-usb-audio seems to have

successful step, I'll keep you informed.
Thanks a lot & kind regards
