Does not work for all alarms
Authored by: ziploked on Nov 12, '09 10:45:19PM

I found a solution to changing your default sound in Snow Leopard...
1. First of all, you need an .aiff file to work with. To convert a sound you like, import the sound file into iTunes (assuming .mp3 or .wav)
2. In iTunes, go to iTunes > Preferences
3. # Click General at the top of the Preferences window.
4. Click Import Settings.
5. From the Import Using menu, choose AIFF Encoder instead of MP3 or AAC encoders
6. Open iTunes, highlight the original sound file, and choose Advanced > Create AIFF version
7. Find the .aiff version in your finder, and drag it to your desktop
8. Open Finder > Macintosh HD > System > Library > Sounds. Drag your new AIFF file into Sounds folder. You may need to authenticate to do this, meaning supply your password
9. Open System Preferences > Sound > Sound Effects and select your new sound!
