Set volume when playing wave file

On a Windows desktop app, I want to play a WAV file at a volume that my program sets but I'm having a hard time figuring out how. PlaySound() looks very easy to use but as far as I can tell, you can't set the volume with it. The media player (TMediaPlayer in VCL) won't set the volume unless the device type is digital-video or VCR, as documented in the Microsoft help for the MCI_SETAUDIO command.

The app will run on Windows 7 or later. I just need to set the volume before playing the WAV file, not while it's playing.
