sonorOS overview

With sonorOS you can assign your own sounds to any of 36 common macOS system events. Customize alerts, modifier key presses, mouse clicks, window dragging and a whole lot more to play whatever sounds you like. Drag your .m4a, .mp3, .wav or .aif sound file onto an event in sonorOS and it will play every time that event occurs, for as long as the app is running unobtrusively in the background. Bored of the generic, anodyne Mac noises you’ve been listening to day in, day out for years? You can use sonorOS to play your own custom sound effects for any of these 36 system events - most of which are otherwise completely silent:

Version: 1.0
As a loyal user of "Sound4Fun" (the first "Ettore Software" app that gave voice to our MACs), I was able to try this new app: sonorOS. Attractive graphics, well-structured menus, easy configuration. Possibility to create own "Sound Set" by associating our sounds to the various events. In other words, it is an app that makes our MAC "sparkling". New life at the MAC.
