Ever wanted to switch-off the startup sound on your Mac? StartupSound.prefPane is a simple preference pane which controls the volume of it on your Mac.

StartupSound.prefPane mutes the startup sound without changing your main volume setting so it doesn't affect the rest of your Mac's audio. You can select or de-select the startup volume using the Startup Sound pane added to the System Preferences when you've installed it.

Note however that the developer recommends that you backup your Mac before installing StartupSound.prefPane. Therefore, ensure that you're TimeMachine backups are up to date before installing it. If this worries you, you can always try using Psst! instead which isn't quite as good but does pretty much the same thing.

StartupSound.prefPane is probably the most effective startup sound silencer for Macs.

Changes

  • Fixed compatibility issue with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
