Great Collection! There's just one more old Mac system "sound" that has eluded me (although it might be classified more as an Easter egg); I've searched the internet far and wide for just a mention of its existence.
On a Macintosh LC-II, if one pressed the Apple key repeatedly very quickly, it would make a "kind-of-slide-whistle-with-cricket-chirping" sound. More specifically, it would play a fast, high-pitched octave going up, then a "chirp", then play the octave going down. The tone was close to a sine wave, but slightly more evolved; I think they were going for a slide whistle sound, but the tones were separated. The sound's duration was about 5 seconds, and it would repeat as long as you kept hitting the Apple key.
Does anyone else remember this? My 8th grade computer class would drive our teacher crazy with this noise. One person would start tapping their Apple key, then the entire class would join in, creating a chorus of whistling and chirping LC-II's (it was great, you had to be there).
I don't even know how one would go about retrieving this sound from an old Mac system, but if you're up for the challenge, I'd love to have it! Any help (or even just an acknowledgment that it did exist and I'm not crazy) would be appreciated!

IF you play these sounds and they seem to be cut-off, try changing to another audio player. It turns out that QuickTime 10.1 remains such a piece of unfinished crudcode that it can't properly play some sounds. Blame Apple, not the sounds.

The perfect example is 'Laugh.aiff' and 'Laugh.wav'. You only get one 'ha' when it plays either directly in QT Player 10.1 or if you use the space-key preview. Not surprisingly, QuickTime Player 7.6.6 plays all the sounds perfectly. There is nothing wrong with the sounds.

This is a very long-standing Apple problem where they have refused for years to actually finish their 64-bit version of QuickTime. Version 10.1 continues to be merely an interim fudge on the perfection that was the 32-bit version, 7.6.x.

(I've been ranting at Apple about this for years and they don't care. Yes, I dare say this as it is one of those rare instances where Apple need a swift kick in the nether-region to get them to wake up. Kick Apple enough and they will respond. Please join in).

Nostalgia at its best. :)
I had a big laugh at the sound names: clink-klank, chutoy, ...

Great fun!

Great stuff! All the AIFF files have the very endings cut off, but I was able to convert the other versions to AIFF files.

See my post above about the seemingly 'cut-off' sounds.

All the sounds are actually fine. The problem occurs if you are playing them using QuickTime 10 or using the space-key preview. This is due to Apple's continued incomplete coding of Quicktime 10. If you play the sounds in 32-bit QuickTime v7.6.6 they play perfectly.

Please join in ranting at Apple about their incomplete 64-bit implementation of QuickTime. QT 10 problem has been going on for YEARS and Apple has not responded.

Very nice putting the old sounds into the new OS, but I am commenting on the fact that anyone can view the developers resume on his site. I think this is a good idea for potential jobs, but is yet again "in the wild" for anyone and everyone to see.
