Developer, please edit out the "seconds of silence" from each sound file. You can do it easily by using the freeware Audacity.

Some of these are nice sounds. One problem is that many of the files are 4 seconds long, even when the sound itself takes one second or less, with three seconds of silence at the end. I think these should be cut off.

Don't install in /Library/Audio/Sounds/

The best thing to do is to create a Sounds folder in /Library (the main library) and put these files into it. This way they will be available for all the applications which can use system sounds, e.g. 3-2-1 timer, in addition to being available under System Preferences>Sound>Sound Effects.

This tip is no longer relevant as the developer took it into account and introduced a graphical installer in version 1.1 which installs the sounds in /Library/Sounds. So they are in fact system sounds.
