The only way that I know is via keyboard shortcuts.  Goto System -> 
Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts.  Scroll down about a 1/3 of the way 
and there you should find the Sound section.  Essentially click on the 
desired function, and it should come up saying "New Accelerator...", 
then just press the appropriate key on your keyboard.  Hope it helps.
