Weird Mac Startup and Crash Sounds

While we’re all familiar with the sound Macs make as they power on, there have been some unusual ones in the past. My favorite is probably the Power Mac 6100 death chime, which sounds like a car crash.[1. Which is probably the last thing anyone wanted to hear as their Mac crashed.]

You can download the complete collection of 19 unusual Mac tones here.

Update: From 512 Pixels reader Bryan S:

If you change all of those tones’ extensions to .m4r instead of .m4a you can add them into iTunes and sync them over to an iPhone.

Editor’s Note: These were found living in the application package of Mactracker, which is an app no Apple nerd should live without.
