If it sounds peculiar to you think how I felt when I found this out!
It is strange. I am using VLC and PulseAudio. At the time, I got a new
Asus Zenbook and just transferred over my old Emacs stuff. Playing
music with EMMS was fine but the volume control didn't work and I had
to externally (outside Emacs) change volume. Then I traced through and
found that my master card was 1, not 0.

Fair enough, and of course you don't have to use -c if card 0 is your master.
