Incrementing volume through amixer

I am trying to make it so that I can change the volume of my speakers through the keyboard. I'm going to add a couple lines to my ~/.fluxbox/keys to call a command like amixer to +/- the current volume.

The only problem is, I can't find any way to do this with amixer. I see a way to set the absolute volume (e.g., amixer set Master 95) but not to a value +/- the current volume.

Is there another program I can use to do this?

A friend here helped me out. It's aumix -v +x or aumix -v -x, where x is the volume difference.
