Setting Custom Alert Sounds On Your Mac

You can change the alert sound on your Mac using System Preferences. There are a variety of built-in sounds to choose from. You can also import your own sound files by placing them into a special folder. These files must use a special format, or at least have the file extension set to that format.

    Where can one find audio files to use as alerts sounds?

      You can record sounds yourself using the QuickTime Player app, or GarageBand. You can also use GarageBand to make sounds using notes from different instruments. You can also look around online for sounds just like you would look for images.
