    Anybody have any packs? That arn't stupid? Like actual beeps, bleeps swoos and dings? I am in no way interested in machine gun sound effects and animal noises. That stuff pisses me off lol.

    Probably the same way you can make your own ringtones? Cut an mp3 down to what you want and convert it to whatever iTunes takes.

    You could create them with GarageBand or virtually any other sound-creating program.

    Edit: Oh I see where this is heading, you have to create m4r files that are 128 kbit max and under 31 seconds long.. You could do this via iTunes.

    The files are m4r, there are a ton of free apps to make them, or convert existing ones.

    I'm going to make one tonight from the music that plays when you open a treasure chest in Zelda.

    The Mario 25th Anniversary soundtrack also included some cool ones last year.

    The sound that plays when you get a Metroid item is also a good consideration.

    Not sure what will work though. Don't want anything that plays too long if it's just an alert tone.

    then convert to m4r. and you are good to go..

    right click file in itunes,
    create ACC version
    click show in windows explorer
    rename last bit of link from .m4a to .m4r
