Windows 7: Automatically reduce volume when phone rings?

Automatically reduce volume when phone rings?

Does anyone know of a Win 7 application that will sense an incoming call on my landline (via modem) then reduce my media player volume?

I like to play my music loud, my phone is quiet

I can't think of good search terms to find an app like that?

My previous sound card had that option built in. You could select that option via the console.
