To easily fix this, as root, go to your /dev directory and type chmod 666 * -v <---You don't need this but it'll show you what it's doing.
I do a wildcard because noone else uses my Linux but you could instead if you want just do your /dev/dsp , /dev/audio , /dev/mixer , /dev/sequencer with the same command eg. chmod 666 dsp since you are alread in the /dev dir.
