Sounds4Fun

1.1.1
15 November 2010

Assign any sound to any of up to 70 events.

Overview

Sounds4Fun allows you to assign any sound to any of up to 70 events. Hear a sound every time you hit CAPSLOCK or when power to your Macbook is interrupted. Be alerted by a sound when the Finder has finished that long copy. Amuse your friends by having the Mac yawn when it goes to sleep or wakes up. Have HAL ask you if you are sure you made the right decision when you shut your Mac down and many, many more!

Assign a sound to any number of short phrases of up to 3 words and hear it play when the phrase is typed - fun for pranks, but possibly useful to correct your bad typing habits?

Have Sounds4Fun read out the name of the currently playing song and artist when iTunes starts playing a track.

The original "SoundMaster" program from the very early days of the Mac was an extremely cool feature that even made PC users jealous. Now finally after many years of losing the capability of assigning your favorite sound samples to system events like empty trash, restart, shutdown, disk eject, error dialog etc, the nostalgia is back! I actually registered Xounds, which tried to do something similar, but more clumsily and with severe system problems due to the APE plug-in..., but Sounds4Fun is superior and more stable. To easily find select your sounds, drop a folder of your favorite .AIF sound files in the lowest directory on your drive (where you find the System Folder, Library, Applications folder etc.., and it will be easy to find when you choose individual sounds for system events. To avoid monotony, try putting similar sounds in folders inside your favorite sound folder, and you can even select those FOLDERS to randomly play any sound in it for system events. Thanks for a fantastic program!

Does not work like it used to under 10.10.1 Yosemite. The app requires a setting from Apple that it no longer provides. It still does make sounds just not consistently like pulling down menus which only works consistently on it's own menu item.

I'm using a beta of Sounds4Fun v2.0 (22) for keyboard clicks. Works great in Mavericks. Downloaded from developer. Thanks ... Ken

Great utility!!! I'm addicted. Working well under 10.8.3. Just received an email from the developer saying they will be supporting future (10.9) OSs. Also stated that the number of events will be reduced (and asked me for my favorite ones).

Well it's now 2012 and after several OS upgrades this little app is still working just fine. How the developer managed to create a program that can go so long with no need for updates is beyond my understanding but as long as it keeps working I'm not complaining. Even Unsanity couldn't do this and they've more or less given up. With the next major upgrade coming up this may change but until then I'm a happy camper.

Correction: Evidently it has been upgraded once since I purchased it. I guess since it's worked so well I must have upgraded it and then forgot about it since I've had no problems either before the upgrade or after it.

A fun little app. Reminds me of some similar utility I had back in the OS7 days ;) Unfortunately, it causes QuickBooks 2011 to crash, so I can't use it.

This is awesome! It may be a good replacement for Xounds from Unsanity or at least a good supplement to what it lacks. So far I've had no problems but I'll be sure to report them if they do occur. The price is not bad either. It will be interesting to see how Unsanity reacts to this.

Good luck. This is not new software, it has been around for several years. If you need help, don’t expect any. Lots of emails in the past with no help at all. It might be OK for awhile but when Apple changes anything don’t expect any assistance or quick fixes.

It works in 10.6.4, but it's missing some important event sound functionality, especially individual sounds for login and startup, which atm is only available through the SystemSound Extension. Why not in Sounds4Fun too? It would also be nice to be able to distinguish between shutdown, restart and logout operations and use different sounds for each event. And 64bit support for Snow Leopard would be awesome!

Woo hoo! It works! All my old Xounds sounds work again, without APE! I hadn't tried it for more than half an hour before I paid for it.

Using Lion now, and it's still working. I know that someday, with some future update to the operating system, it will stop. As there have not been any updates for over a year, either none is necessary, or the developer has left it to rot. Let's hope the former is correct.
