has done it again. Xounds
is a system prefs pane that brings back much (but not all, as of yet) of the functionality of Appearance Sound Sets from OS 9.
This $7 shareware package installs easily as a preference panel, and brings back the various clicks, wooshes, buzzes and beeps when you open, close, move, click, drag, or otherwise take some action. In looking at some "top" output while doing some outrageous stuff like dragging across the menu and back, I never saw Xounds anywhere above about 2% of the CPU usage, and most of the time it was well under 1% (this was on a G4/733).
The program even contains a link to soundsetcentral.com
, where you can download additional soundsets for use with Xounds.
Unsanity has released a number of fun and/or useful utilities recently, including FruitMenu, DockDetox, and WindowShade. They do what they claim to do, they're easy to install and remove, and they are priced very reasonably - nice work!
