Change volume of SoX (or some other whitenoise generator)

I need to play a very quiet whitenoise on background, and I found a command that can play such noise:

play -n synth whitenoise

except, I actually got jumpscared when I first used it because of how loud this thing is, I tried using -v argument, but it doesn't seem to affect the output audio at all.

Anyone has any idea how I could solve this?

(I have been using Blanket before, but it's really not optimal to have a GUI application running on background + it uses python which takes quite a bit of ram)

Assuming you're using a sound server, lowering the volume there directly should stick, e.g. in pavucontrol or so.

Is there a way to do it through command line e.g. in one command so that I could autostart it properly at the right volume?
