With the recent Yosemite software update (I updated on 23rd February 2015) the cool 'bubble' sound that the volume keys made when pressed is now gone and replaced with a different sound. How do I get the old one back?

  • @IconDaemon Whilst that's related, that's not a duplicate—it still requires the original file to replace the new file with.

While it is always difficult to describe the sound (I can only guess which one you mean), I am offering you to find it first.


Once found:

Copy the file to desktop and rename it in to Volume.aiff

Now go here /System/Library/LoginPlugins/BezelServices.loginPlugin/Contents/Resources/ find and rename the Volume.aiff in to oldvolume.aiff

Last step, move the file from desktop in to this folder.
