What do you mean "When you set it up"? pavucontrol can change the volume
of any running stream - or are you talking about from an API level?
Regardless you can change the volume of a running stream no problem.
The tricky bit is trying to catch a stream that is very short - like
sound events. To adjust their volume is pretty tricky!
This limitation is being addressed tho'. (AFAIK).
