What's new in Startup Chime Stopper

Version 7.1:
  • A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with High Sierra, and as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
  • The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the Application in particular under Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra:
  • Under Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra, if you're launching the Application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developer).

A rip off. Charging this much for slapping a badly written front end on somebody else's work is a disgrace. AlphaOmega software are a disgrace.

Old thieves never die; they just come back to rob you again. EVERY AplhaOmega product is poorly written, overpriced, and available elsewhere with more and better functionality and for free...often within the OS, itself. Buyer beware!

How to remove the startup chime for free: *MUTE* your Mac before restarting or shutting down. When your Mac reboots the next time, there will be NO startup chime. I said FREE! ;-) OR you could buy one of the recent MacBook Pros, which no longer have a startup chime, ever.

They're baaack; hold on to your wallet! AlphaOmega is a bunch of thieves who charge excessive prices for poor functionality that's usually available elsewhere...better and for less.

"The removal of the chime has been improved. " Whoopie-doo! Whatever that could possibly mean, I still don't want to pay $11-odd for the pleasure of it when it can be done for nix with, oh say, StartNinja.

To temporarily disable the startup sound, just press the “Mute” button on your keyboard (that’s the F10 key on a MacBook) before shutting down or restarting your Mac.

To permanently mute the startup sound, open the terminal and type "sudo nvram SystemAudioVolume=%80" (or sudo nvram SystemAudioVolume=%01, or sudo nvram SystemAudioVolume=%00 or sudo nvram SystemAudioVolume=" " depending on some models).

To restore the startup chime, type: "sudo nvram -d SystemAudioVolume"

There, I just saved you $11.

I can't understand what "The removal of the chime has been improved" means! It's a one-trick application i.e. it either works or it doesn't!

I never understood why anyone would want to stop the startup chime. You only hear it once when you boot. I never found it annoying.

It ain't about you, dude... It's about the other people in the library, or maybe your wife or kid who's sleeping in the same or next room, or the other people at the same meeting...in the same conference room.

Think big, not selfishly little,

You can please yourself but if you think I will ever pay any amount of money just to turn that sound tone thingy off then you are a silly person who needs a serious reality check.

However I happen to like that tonal fanfare when I power up. It makes me feel welcome and all warm inside. To turn it off smacks of disloyalty to the Apple God. You would never ban the national anthem or anything like that so why.... WHY??? Why would anyone commit such an act of treason. Go buy a PC and be done with it!!! This is a hostile and over-priced attack on Apple and it's adoring fans.

Minus 10 stars!!!

My chime has never been turned off, because I've got nobody other than MYSELF to worry about.

If you can't relate to my post, you're a selfish, little pig.

What is the most common sound at an electronic music concert? The damn F# chord when the Macs (invariably) need to be rebooted. People who work in music and theater do need to turn off the boot chime.

This is not an endorsement of this particular application.

I purchased there complete set of software last year. At the time chime stopper version was 4. I was able to download most of the apps I had purchased however there was a problem trying to download 5 of there apps chime stopper being one of them. Last month i tried to download the apps and now there are not avaiable (meaning the version 4 which I paid for) When i emailed the developers they said my purchased apps were no longer available for download and i will need to purchase and upgrade all my purchased apps. I explained that i purchased the apps just last year and that removing apps that people have paid for was ridiculous! I never got a reply back from them. AVOID THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You need to be more forceful...

"AVOID THESE THIEVES" should have been the first thing you said, not the last!

Alpha-Omega is so big a bunch of rip-off artists that MacUpdate should be embarrassed for even allowing them to post.

As much bad stuff as has been posted about them over the years isn't half enough!

Tried it and it does not work!!! I need chime stopper because i startup my iMac in the early mornings before going to work and that chime wakes up my wife and then there is h*** to pay for doing that. Also their price is ridiculously high especailly since it does not work in Maverick 10.9.5 and who know what will happen when Yeo hits the market.
