The SetVolume method sets the attenuation of the sound.
HRESULT SetVolume( LONG lVolume );
Attenuation, in hundredths of a decibel (dB).
If the method succeeds, the return value is DS_OK.
If the method fails, the return value may be one of the following error values:
Allowable values are between DSBVOLUME_MAX (no attenuation) and DSBVOLUME_MIN (silence). These values are defined in Dsound.h as 0 and 10,000 respectively. The value DSBVOLUME_MAX represents the original, unadjusted volume of the stream. The value DSBVOLUME_MIN indicates an audio volume attenuated by 100 dB, which, for all practical purposes, is silence. DirectSound does not support amplification.
