Changing the volume of a .wav file in VB6

I am using this code to play a .wav file in VB6:
This worked for me...notice I'm using PlaySound()...not sndPlaySound()...

Option Explicit

Private Declare Function PlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "PlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszName As String, ByVal hModule As Long, ByVal dwFlags As Long) As Long

Private Const SND_ASYNC = &H1
Private Const SND_NODEFAULT = &H2
Private Const SND_PURGE = &H40

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    PlayWav "C:\Documents and Settings\Michael\My Documents\007.wav"
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub PlayWav(ByVal fileName As String)
    PlaySound fileName, ByVal 0&, SND_ASYNC Or SND_NODEFAULT
End Sub

Private Sub StopWav()
    PlaySound vbNullString, ByVal 0&, SND_PURGE
End Sub

How do I go about being able to change the volume of the wav file as it's being played?

you cannot change the volume for a single file but instead you could chnage it for the os or change the tempo or pitch of the wav file
