Xounds is a haxie that brings back Appearance Sounds to MacOS X. Tired of silence? Want audio feedback when you navigate through menus or drag your windows around? Xounds will convert your existing MacOS 8 or 9 soundsets and make MacOS X a better place to work in. Note that even though not all event sounds are being played yet in this version of Xounds, we are working on bringing more of them for the future versions of this useful haxie.


  • Plays sounds when you work - when you pull down menus, drag windows, select menu items, empty trash, and more.
  • Configurable volume for 4 sound effect groups.
  • Ability to import MacOS 8 or 9 sound sets for use in MacOS X.
  • Stereo or mono output - so you actually hear on what side you have pulled the menu down.
  • Easy to configure as it comes in usual Preference Pane form, accessible through System Preferences.

What's new in v1.2?

  • Added Exclude List option to remove certain applications from being affected by Xounds.
  • Fixed a bug with Xounds crashing if Preload XoundSet option is checked (and removed that option as obsolete).
  • ReadMe can be accessed from within Xounds preference pane.
  • Updated the installer.
  • New icon.
  • Miscellaneous bugfixes and code rewrites.

Configure Xounds to your tastes in the easy-to-use Preference Pane. (picture, 89K)
