save alsamixer input source

I am not able to save the input source of my alsamixer. Every time I reboot the system the input source is set back to front mic. I want it to stay as rear mic.

I tried

alsactl store

I disabled the following in my /etc/pulse/

### Automatically restore the volume of streams and devices
#load-module module-device-restore
#load-module module-stream-restore
#load-module module-card-restore

I am using Centos 6.4 64 Bit

Try using alsactl with the -f variable.
