View Full Version : 15" AluBook Volume Changing Noise

Oct 5, 2003, 10:00 PM
I recently switched from an old PC desktop to one of the new 15" powerbooks (yay.. ), and everything is going quite well, but I'd like to change the noise made when I change the volume (from the little farting noise to something like the purring noise). Is this something that can be done? I feel like one of my friends who has an older TiBook and 10.1.x running can do this. Is this something that would have to be done with a firmware hack?
And one further question, any particular things that make things better using OS X from people who are used to using it (quite a sentence).

Apparantly this isn't very easy or else I would have gotten a reply. At least I'm not being dumb about it.

on my Macs, I turned this sound off, as I find it annoying. You'll find the appropriate checkbox in the system preferences, "Sound", tab "Sound Effects"

I remember reading an article on MacWorld about three months ago about this. Go to their website and dig around. Like all (not many, OS X is a fairly quiet OS) the default sound is stored in vowels of the system files. It can be changed. I also suggest checking out macosxhints.com. Good Luck!

right on, it was on macworld. Pretty keyHERE (http://www.macworld.com/2003/08/secrets/macosxhints/) Now I have the volume change as the little purring noise, which I find much more pleasant personally. One of my friends had it like that and THat was what I expected when i got this baby, but alas, it wasn't so I've been wanting to change it every since. Thanks ya'll
