Mac Startup Sound App

Recommended Posts

Copy this app into /Applications and add to your login items under the "accounts" preference pane to enjoy the Mac startup sound on login

You can modify the app to play any .mp3 file renamed to StartupSound.mp3 and put under the apps resources.

Hey Andy,

nice to see u still productive and multi-placing your interests for the satisfaction of the scene.

btw, I found this PrefPane for u. Maybe, it could be adapted to improve things or so :)

Sorry for my bad English

 

Andy: Thank you for your app, but StartupSound.app shows its icon on the Dock when opening. It makes me feel not like a real Mac startup sound.

Valv: SystemSound.prefpane doesn't work in Snow Leopard (64 bit mode)

 

May be my PlayStartupSound.app is better. Only one line of AppleScript to make this app. And it doesn't show its icon on the Dock when opening.

 

Download PlayStartupSound.app here (include Windows 2000 startup sound)

Mac startup sound can be downloaded here

 

- Copy your startup sound to /System/Library/Sounds, then rename it to Startup.mp3

- Put PlayStartupSound.app anywhere you want (I think it's better in /System/Library/CoreServices).

- Add PlayStartupSound.app to your Login Items list. You may have to check the Hide checkbox beside.

Before add it, you should run it to check.

- Restart & Enjoy.

 

In an Apple Macintosh, you have to mute the default startup sound by using the StartupSound.prefpane. In a Hackintosh, this is not necessary because a Hackintosh doesn't have a Mac ROM (which include the default startup sound).

Thanks Le Cao Nguyen for the simpler version, it works as stated, but is there a way to get it to play before the desktop appears? On a real Mac it plays during the grey splash screen!!! Any ideas anybody?

 

Cheers Plucka
