You're right, there's per-program volume and a master volume knob
in the daemon. It's exposed through standarized midi messages, so
in theory it can be controlled by either a hardware midi control
surface or by software.

You could try this utility:

http://www.sndio.org/aucatctl-0.1.tar.gz

ex:

sardine:~$ aucatctl              
aucat0=127
mplayer0=105
audacio0=127
master=127
$ aucatctl mplayer0=90 
mplayer0 -> 90

This is not satisying, and the plan is to add a "real" mixer api to
expose both sndiod and hardware knobs over the network. But the
code is not ready yet, so it's not enabled yet.
