I had a go with it too. I think the reason is that vsound just writes
the totally unconverted au stream to STDOUT. Any other processing
happens in the pipeline after that. At least this is my assumption. So
in that case, -r would only work if you were saving the file to disk.

But, as you point out, sox is a better solution anyway, especially if
you want to alter the gain.

I'll have a tinker with it later.
