The original Quadra startup sound is my favorite one of all. Here's a sample of it.

The current startup sound hasn't changed since the introduction of the PCI-based PowerMac. Here's a sample of it.

The prize for the best "crash" sound definitely goes to the Centris/Quadra AV series (660AV and 840AV). Here's a sample of it.

Yup, it's for real. Just start up a Centris/Quadra 660AV or 840AV, and immediately press the programmer's button. This will cause the machine to crash, producing that sound.

There's some other good "crash" sounds on the older Macs. For example, here's the crash sound for the Power Macintosh Upgrade Card.

Can you post all those sounds in a .sit file for download? I still think the absolute TOP sound as far as heart attack inducing goes is the Car Crash Failure noise! That is 100% Guaranteed to give any lab tech a heart attack in no time!

Thanks King Chung Huang, that was worth the wait.

If you've got more of those, I'd love to hear 'em.
They bring back good memories and new laughs.
I had a P-476 that I put a full -040 in and hooked up to my stereo(the first of many hardware hacks).
The first time I started it, I jumped a foot.

I got the startup and crash sounds from David Schaub's "Apple Startup + Crash Sounds". It is currently hosted at http://www.tcp.com/~dschaub/sound.html. You can visit that page to get the entire package.

Certainly does bring back some good memories.
