The driver is OSS but it looks like you're talking about Virtual OSS,
which I'm not sure is related to OSS. You can use Virtual OSS,
Pulseaudio, or Sndio - these sit "on top" of the driver.
Anyhow, you might try:

% mixer
Mixer vol      is currently set to  25:25
Mixer pcm      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer speaker  is currently set to  59:59
Mixer line     is currently set to   1:1
Mixer mic      is currently set to  67:67
Mixer mix      is currently set to  37:37
Mixer rec      is currently set to  37:37
Mixer igain    is currently set to   0:0
Mixer ogain    is currently set to 100:100
Recording source: mic

I use i3 and I don't think there is a fancy gui applet for audio.

There's a really good X gui mixer with the oss port (not the virtual
port), but that might not work with your hardware.
