Volume Controll for each channel

10: Channel Volume

Channel tracks table stores offset for all 9 sound channels used by driver in the following order:
		FM1, FM2, FM3, FM4, FM5, FM6, PSG1, PSG2, PSG3
	Channel tracks cannot be skipped -- if the channel is unused, corresponding track should start with byte 0FFh (end of track marker).

	Each FM/PSG track refers to patterns from patterns table by table entry number. Both tracks and patterns can execute coordinate flags.
