Have you already looked at "Slider (Multi-Thumb)" in the authoring practice?

https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices/#slidertwothumb
https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices/examples/slider/multithumb-slider.html

The example works ok with the keyboard and with NVDA but does not work on
ios. The adjustable value for the slider doesn't respond to flicks up/down
even when the rotor is set to "adjust value". I don't have an android
device to test the volume keys.
