Syncing with iCal: The BLURB audio feedback horror Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi there,

perhaps Iím just a bit on the nervous side, but that bloody audio BLURB every time I synchronise with iCal is driving me nuts. Not only me, but my girlfriend sitting at her PC next to me jumps up from her chair every time that BLURB sounds from my Mac.

Could we make audio feedback a preference item, pretty please?


Especially when it comes through the hi-fi.
Especially when it comes through the hi-fi and you synchronize frequently...
the sound is EVIL!
Sorry for having sounded a bit annoyed yesterday evening, but after playing around with sync settings all afternoon I simply couldnít bear it any more.

I am all for audio alerts, some people find it useful and thatís fine with me. But I personally canít stand it and would hate to have to mute my Mac every time Iím working in OF Ö

I prefer Growl alerts any time. And as OF already has rudimentary Growl support, why not send a Growl alert after a successful sync? Or, well, thereís this HUD coming up while syncing anyway, so perhaps a one-second ĄSync successfulď after the spinning wheel thingy?

Well, for me the sound comes through as a gentle bleep. How loud do you have your speaker set to?
Yay! Itís gone!

P. S. pvonk: Loud enough to have some low-key music playing in iTunes, so not all that loud at all.
