Run the following command to edit the file.
sudo nano /boot/config.txt

Reboot the Raspberry Pi.

You can adjust the levels for Headphone, PCM, Lineout, Microphone, and Capture.
Also you can select what input to capture, either Microphone or Line In, and what source to select for the headphones, either Line In or DAC.
