Hello,

I want to change the horrible crunchy paper sound of the standard OS X trash emptying.

I have a sound that I want to play instead. Does anyone know where the system emptying sound is stored so I can swap it out?

Thanks.

In the Finder, navigate to /System/Library/Components. Control-click on CoreAudio.component and choose Show Package Contents from the contextual menu. In the resulting Finder window, navigate to /Contents/Resources/System Sounds. Within this folder are subfolders containing AIFF files of all the sounds your system makes, each clearly labeled. You'll want to open the "finder" folder to reveal the trash sounds.

Excellent - that works, Thanks.

I now have Strong Bad saying "Deleted!" when I empty the trash!

Does anyone have a AIFF file of Oscar saying "Oh I Love Trash"?
