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!
