Sound might work in gnome without additional setup, but in a bare bones enviroment some additional steps might be needed:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture

pacman -S alsa-utils

probably it will be muted so:

amixer sset Master unmute

or

alsamixer 

and change it


cmus will try and use pulse if you let it

switch it in the ~/.cmus/rc

set output_plugin=alsa
set dsp.alsa.device=default
set mixer.alsa.channel=Master
set mixer.alsa.device=default
