I use Tasker to set my volumes down low when at work, but even at level 1, the Note 2 is pretty damn loud in an office. Is there any equalizer apps that work with Tasker to set the volume levels lower than 1?

It might sound stupid but attach earphones and adjust the value accordingly. as I said intensive stupidity but it is a solution....

What if ... you set a specific ringtone for the work place and reduced it's volume. I edited one of the stock ringtones to serve as an example. Listen to both on your phone.

Ringing_to_you (Stock)
Ringing_to_you - -15db (After applying -15db)

Not a very elegant solution. I can edit a file for you if you don't have the tools

EDIT: I assumed it was the ringtone volume that's bothering you, now I've re-read the op I'm not so sure.

I think this would be the easiest option. Set tasker to change your ringtone and just make it a low volume one.

Don't ask me how as I was never any good with it, so just gave up trying.

It's my sms tone specifically. If Tasker could change the default sounds for things other than the ringer it would be perfect. The suggestion of changing the volume of the file directly is probably the best for now.
