Custom sounds and Alert dialogues
Hello All!

I am big Star Trek fan. I am wondering if there is anyway to play a variety of selected sounds (from the net) on my mac everytime a different dialogue box pops up? Or on any other system events such as startup, bombs, crashes, program launches, save/open dialogues, etc.

Any info on techniques or program recommendations would be great!

Mac OS 8.6-9.x supports sound sets which will play different sounds on different events.

Check out sites like or for ready made sound sets.

For creating own sound sets there's a tool "SoundSet Constructor" floating around, seems it's currently rewritten but you can still get it at

Hope that helps

There is a shareware program that will allow you to customize sounds with events called "Sounds4Fun".
Check it out at:

Skaught24, could you please post some links on where to get some cool Star Trek sounds? I'm a big fan of Star Trek, too, particularly the original series and Next Generation. Thanks!

There are 3 Star Trek soundsets that I know of. I would give you the links, but they are no where to be found on my system. So the best I can tell you is to try the above links or go to to track them down. Soundsets are wonderful!!! Also, don't forget you can add your own Star Trek alert sounds by dragging them to your system suitcase and then selecting them in your Sounds control panel. I'm not sure if you can have a unique sound for different alert messages though.

The names:

Trek Sounds 1.0 (sounds from the original)
LCARS Sounds (sounds from TNG)
The Borg v1.0 Soundset

You can get plenty of sound sets including Star Trek here.
