In one of my keymap files (in this case, .fluxbox/keys as I use 
fluxbox as my window manager) I have the following:

Shift Mod4 V :exec /usr/bin/amixer set Master 5-,5-
Control Mod4 v :exec /usr/bin/amixer set Master 3+,3+
Mod4 v :exec /usr/bin/amixer set Master toggle

which map to the soft-keys on my laptop keyboard for volume-down, 
volume-up, and toggle-mute.  In whatever environment you're 
using, such keymaps might be configured to give you one-key 
access to these three functions.

Or, they could be wrapped in a script to simplify them.
