Default nForce3: Limited mixer controls under Linux vs Windows


After figuering out that both OSS and ALSA drivers work for the nForce3 sound []
I tried with both to adjust the bass level compared to the treble one coming out of the line out connector, but no success yet. I have Altec Lancing 2.1 setup with only one line-in for all.
ALSA: Tried amixer, alsamixer, and alsamixergui as well as others (kmix, etc...) but all only show these controls (grabbed from "amixer controls"):

numid=9,iface=MIXER,name='Master Mono Playback Switch'

numid=29,iface=MIXER,name='Mono Output Select'
numid=26,iface=MIXER,name='Capture Source'
numid=27,iface=MIXER,name='Capture Switch'
numid=28,iface=MIXER,name='Capture Volume'
numid=40,iface=MIXER,name='IEC958 Input Monitor'
numid=31,iface=MIXER,name='IEC958 Playback Con Mask'

numid=33,iface=MIXER,name='IEC958 Playback Default'
numid=41,iface=MIXER,name='IEC958 Playback Route'
numid=34,iface=MIXER,name='IEC958 Playback Switch'
numid=39,iface=MIXER,name='IEC958 Capture Switch'
numid=36,iface=MIXER,name='Duplicate Front'
numid=42,iface=MIXER,name='External Amplifier'

OSS: Tried nvmixer, but again, the same controls appear.

Is there an equivalent to SoundMan in the Windows world? As there I can adjust all I need just fine.
