So the card is there and is being recognized. You should try to set
output levels using envy24control (you have to have alsa-tools

There is a tab for analog levels, make sure all outputs are up. And a
tab for output metering which could help to see if there's audio being
sent to the card. What are you using for testing?

I would fire up jack ("jackd -R -d alsa -d hw:0", or use qjackctl) and
then, for example, start Hydrogen, set it up to use jack, load one of
the demo patterns, connect things up in qjackctl and press play...
