That did the trick. Headphone and PCM were both at 95%. Setting them
to 90% and 80% respectively was a reasonable level. Any lower than
that, and I couldn't hear it at all.
Obviously, a volume GUI in the topbar is pretty crucial. Personally, I
would have made physical buttons for it if I were designing it.

For now, the only ones you care about are the "Headphone" and "PCM"
volumes. Respectively, these are the master volume and the volume of
the software-generated sounds.
