    Is there any way to have separate notification and ringtone volumes?

    From the looks of it, this appears to be an ICS limitation. I found another thread that says this was fixed in 4.0.3, but isn't the One S 4.0.3 and I don't see any way to do this.

    Have you tried that app? I think people are saying that ICS overrides apps like that and still won't allow you to separate them.

    I guess, worst case, I can take the notification sound file and cut the amplitude down and see if that helps.

    THANK YOU! You just saved me a LOT of aggravation. I was able to get separate ringtone/notification volume controls on my Galaxy Exhilarate with ICS, but NOT on my brand new Moto X 1st gen with KK 4.4.4. It was driving me crazy (and I think things could get even worse with L 5.0). But since I do my own personalized phone ringtones and notification sounds all I have to do is lower the volume on the notification sounds as you suggested. GENIUS! I was wracking my brain and didn't hit on that one. THANK YOU!
