PulseAudio and alsamixer

I tried to use alsamixer when PulseAudio was not running and got the following error message.

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory

The problem was that I was not in the audio group.

$ sudo vim /etc/group
$ grep audio /etc/group
audio:x:29:matt
