UI Sounds 1

Here, you can change sounds played when specific “events” happen (for example, the sound played when you get a new IM). You can also chose to disable (or re-enable) sounds on a case by case basis.

To change a sound, locate the “event” you are interested in (example: Taking Snapshot), then paste in the UUID of the sound you wish to use. To obtain the UUID of a sound in your inventory, right click on it and select Copy UUID.
Note that the sound clip needs to be full permissions in order for you to be able to obtain the UUID.)

If you wish to restore the default value, click the D button to the right of the UUID.

The drop down to the far right of each line allows you to enable or disable each sound.

UI Sounds 2

This tab continues the previous one, with more “event” alert sounds you can change.
