That was the first thing I tried. xset allows me to change the volume,
pitch, duration, and turn on and off the internal pc speaker which does
not exist in my computer.

Other sound sound card drivers set up a virtual pc speaker device that
X will sound. However, the driver for my rather homebrew USB DAC does
not provide such support. It was tough deciding to extend the alsa
driver for my audio system or change two lines of code when I learned
somebody else had already written the daemon to listen for the
notification and sound a tone.
