Change the Notification Center sound
Authored by: frankfurter on Mar 07, '13 08:42:12AM

While it pains me to agree with anything Erica Sadun does or says, she's right.

As a longtime Mac user, I've often wondered why Apple seems to continually ignore the "bells and whistles", like desktop wallpaper, themes, and especially sounds. Submarine? Seriously?

Sure, I'm aware that it's possible to modify your system sounds, but why have they not updated the system sounds, like, ever?

I agree. Twenty years of Sasumi is enough.

In reality, though, these and other system sounds are very easy to change.

And if you have iMovie and open the package, there are 95 different sounds (mp3s) in there. Go to iMovie/Contents/Resources/iMovie '08 Sound Effects.

Sosumi:
In fact, it is: So Sue Me....
From a conflict with Apple Records (the Beatles record co) in which, for Apple Computer to use the word 'Apple', the Mac, or any other Apple product, was not supposed to be a musical instrument...
However, this sound was, in fact, a MIDI key sound, thus potentially transforming the Mac into a musical instrument...

However, Steve Jobs, being who he was, decided to go ahead with that simple sound and called it 'so sue me'....

i think that's pretty much how the story went (my poor memory is no longer what it used to be.. unfortunately, no upgrades available for that yet)...

PS: They did sue... Big time!

;-)
