There's nothing wrong with answering your own question.

Probably some process is not using your dmix device. What is the output of lsof /dev/snd/*?

For two hw devices (real and loopback), you need two dmix devices. Show the actual configuration file you're trying to use.

comment Issues with arecord command
There is no sample rate problem. (When playing a .wav file, the rate is always taken from the file.)

comment Issues with arecord command
Then your distribution's alsa-utils package is not up to date. Anyway, the hardware apparently supports only stereo.

What mismatch? Try running alsamixer -c1 do adjust mixer controls.

comment mpd fails to open ALSA device where aplay succeeds
A globally available device should be put into /etc/asound.conf. A device available for the user mpd should be put into /home/mpd/.asoundrc.

comment Can't open audio device /dev/dsp: Device or resource busy
Then you also got an error message regarding ALSA. Are you using PulseAudio? Does mplayer's configuration find it?

comment Can't open audio device /dev/dsp: Device or resource busy
/dev/dsp is not an ALSA interface. How did you configure mplayer?

comment No sound in arch linux with xfce4
You don't need the asound.conf. And when speaker-test works, everything is fine as far as ALSA is concerned. Any problem you have is with whatever software you're using to play sounds, which you have kept a secret.

comment No Audio on my system (currently running elementary OS)
I don't know what those options are. Anyway, this question is about Elementary OS; ask a new question with proper information.

Your machine has (at least) three different audio outputs (analog, S/PDIF, HDMI). It's likely to use the wrong one unless you configure it ("System Settings", "Sound").
