Hey, I like control sequences for this task!
I understand this as controlling the noise a write(#07) makes, pretty
easy. I'll try it.
Ahem, maybe you know how to control the volume, too?

No problem here, I only need an acoustic feedback from a program reading
values from a DMM, so the person using it doesn't has to look at the
screen each time. But there have to be at least two or three different
