This PR adds the engine support for #14231. I don't have the expansion sound files to test with, so I will leave the yaml changes to @reaperrr of @dan9550.

Note that we cannot reliably boost volume using modifiers > 1, and will instead need to reduce the volume of all tracks, with the noted tracks reduced less.

Quote from the OpenAL 1.1 specification:

AL_GAIN larger than one (i.e. amplification) is permitted for source and listener. However, the implementation is free to clamp the total gain (effective gain per-sourcemultiplied by the listener gain) to one to prevent overflow

On my system VolumeModifiers > 1 appear to make no difference, so it seems that macOS is clamping the total gain to one.

@pchote pchote added this to the Next Release milestone Jan 29, 2019

Note: I have a follow-up that fixes TD track volumes. Since values > 1.0 won't work for everyone, the other mods aren't worth tackling as there are far less (and far less pronounced) differences between tracks compared to TD.
