Audio Input and Output: Sound Preferences and Audio MIDI Setup

Tiger sound input and output are controlled primarily through the Sound System Preferences pane. The three subpanes within the Sound preferences are Sound Effects, Input, and Output. These control alert sounds, audio input, and audio output as you would expect. Some addition advanced controls are available through the Audio MIDI tool, also discussed here.

Configuring Sound Effects

The Sound Effects pane provides access to the system alert sounds and other effect sounds that play while you use your computer, as shown in Figure 5.55. Choose the alert sound that you want your computer to play when it needs to get your attention. System sounds are stored in /System/Library/Sounds. You can add your own systemwide sounds to the directory /Library/Sounds, or personal sounds to ~/Library/Sounds. These directories probably don't exist on your system, so you might need to create them.
