If you like a sound in any file and want to use it for an alert sound, then you can capture it using

sound-siphon-1.1.sit.hqx

available from www.shareware.com - just choose the Mac directory and search for the above.

This isn't a direct answer to your question but it might be helpful.

Cheers,

Rifty

I assume the 2K "Wild Eep" in System 7.5.5 won't do, nor the 3K Monkey sound in System 6.0.7.

All System alerts are kept in the System file (a suitcase in the System folder.) The name of the sound you're looking for is "Wild Eep". If it's not in there, then post a comment for your question here and I'll email it to you.

slinkyslug, thanks for your answer. perhaps I sould have listed my own tactics that have been unsuccessful for locating the sound-I ranked this question as moderately difficult because i have already checked all of my files, archives etc. and the sound is not in my collection (hasn't been for a while, i just finally got around to trying to get it).  I've also searched all over the archives on the net; info-mac, etc.  the moderate level of difficulty i gave to the question is because i can't find it on the net, and asking in newsgroups hasn't given me what i'm looking for either (though one person did claim to know and i'm tracking their answer through the web- they weren't exactly right, but may be close). someone with access to a bunch of archives (amug, bmug, etc.) may have an idea where it's from, but i have't found it.  That's why I'm asking for help in finding it in a freeware/shareware archive on the net or someone else's collection. I'm running System 7.6.1, and it's not Wild Eep (which doesn't sound like an animal at all to me).  The noise I'm looking for is more like a chimp going "ee," as they often do in sequence (ee ee ee).  It might even be a file smaller than 9K.  i know someone's got it out there!  but i'm afraid that if the answer were to be found in my system suitcase, that would be an EASY question to answer.

Gil,
      The sound may well be the System 6.0.7 Monkey one you mention. If I can find it, or if you can get it to me, and that's it, i think you win the points.

OK.  I have the 6.0.7 monkey sound, and I'll figure out how to get it to you.

p.s. thanks to rifty for his comment- i know about soundsiphon but wanted to see if i could find the monkey sound before using it.

through an ironic turn, someone on a usenet list i had posted to emailed me the sound the same morning that gil wondered if the 6.0.7 sound was the one i was looking for.  so gil was actually the second person to get the sound to me, but he did do it!  thanks to gil for taking the question to the end and here's the points!
