    OS X is great except for one BIG thing that is missing...

    The Wild Eep.

    Does anybody know where I can get it and how I can add it to my Tiger system sounds? Surely I am not the only one concerned about this endangered species.

    Having been out of the Mac world for 10 years or so, as others have said, some thing(s) were just missing, and these help a LOT. THANK YOU!

    Now, is there something these days, like SoundMaster, that allows you to tie them to certain system events?

    I open up my Wild Eep .wav and hit spacebar constantly. Especially when drunk. It's sad.

    What I miss though is the surprise I used to get from the various popup info windows that would appear in conjunction with the eep. Random eeps that surprise you are what makes them wild. My eeps are tamed now.

    I don't know of a nice neat way to do it, but there is a messy way.

    Many are hiding inside /System/Library/Components in CoreAudio.component. You may want to save a copy of this before playing, since going inside is kind if the modern equivalent of mucking with ResEdit.

    Ctrl-click and show package contents, then go down to Contents/Resources/SystemSounds/ . Inside those folders are most of the interesting noises. You can replace the sound files. I don't know of any extension that would swap them temporarily without doing that.

    Thanks! That looks easy enough. Just have to archive the existing sounds and carefully rename the new ones to be the same as the old ones.
