Nothing, it was a miss understanding, sorry. But that doesn't matter, a
mic input should work out of the box.

It is 2 kinds of settings, volume and switches. Sometime switches are
not simple on/off switches like a mute, but are used to route the pcm
audio signal into the hardware, from one input to one output.

If every thing fail with the alsamixer, this is a another issue. Did
you try with a sound recorder like arecord?

What is the output of

arecord -l


arecord -L
