LAPSDA Multiband EQ on internal audio analog stereo

Try uninstalling it? Also, what do you mean when you say go back to ALSA?

LAPSDA and pulse are separate packages, so that is why LAPSDA was left there.

I was also confused by sound on Ubuntu/Linux when I started but I can understand the basics now. Sound on Ubuntu can be described like this (the arrows mean "talks to"):

Soundcard > ALSA > Pulse > Software

It is possible to have audio without using Pulse, like this:

Soundcard > ALSA > Software

which is what I thought you meant when you said you had "gone back to ALSA". Some of the sound issues in Ubuntu come from the added layer of Pulse between ALSA and software, which is one reason why many people do not like it.
