In my humble opinion, most notification sounds are so abrasive and inconducive that they practically beg to be turned off. I wanted a natural background set that didn't interfere with my workflow, so I built a new set using Apple’s GarageBand. They have a very mellow, subtle nature sound that will make you feel like you're on vacation.

There are eight sounds in total. If you like the set, please give me feedback. Enjoy!

Very nice. Spare and minimalist, but quite functional. I wasn't sure about how the "Rain" and "Sparkle" sounds would complement each other as diametrically opposed Contact Sign On/Sign Off alerts, but they actually mirror each other quite well. Excellent work!

This set is beautiful... I love how it doesn't annoy me. Especially when I'm not actually directly on my computer.

Effective, non-intrusive, minimalist, soothing... this is what a perfect sound set sounds like.

Thank you so much. I have a parrot that tends to enjoy screaming bleeps and bloops he hears. This solves most of those problems. It's so much more soothing to hear him mimic these then the high beeps.

The initial receive tone scared the crap out of me the first time it went off through my subwoofer. Now its awesome :).
