Again, muting start-up sound on Mountain Lion.

I remember I installed a software package to mute start-up sound on my Mac. Recently the annoying sound pops out again.

Here is why.

I’ve had it with the OS X startup chime! I think we can all agree that some mornings could do without Mark Lentczner’s pounding C-major chord, and, on OS X Mountain Lion, traditional tools won’t do.

Regular users are generally afraid of Terminal, so what they do is search the web for third-party tools to help them achieve a desired behavior for their Mac.

StartNinja has had a good run. While it disables the OS X startup sound quickly and effectively, it lacks Mountain Lion compatibility.

So, if you’re running Apple’s latest Mac OS, you’re out of luck as far as this free tool is concerned.
Cocktail is a great piece of software that everyone should install and use. It even includes an option to disable the startup chime, and its creators have managed to keep it fully compatible with the newest OS X version.

The problem is if you only want to disable the startup sound, it’ll cost you $14 / €11 if you go with Cocktail.

So, what you need is a free solution. After all, Apple itself should have included the option in OS X’s System Preferences a long time ago. They’ve been reluctant to do so, which means we’re stuck with guides like this.

Without further ado, in order to eliminate the boot sound on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion (as well as on any other Mac OS currently in circulation), follow these steps exactly.

1. Launch Terminal (from Applications > Utilities > Terminal);

2. Wait for the Terminal UI to display your computer’s name (root directory) and punch in:

<code>sudo nvram SystemAudioVolume=%80</code>

3. Hit Return/Enter;

4. Now you’ll be prompted to type in your administrator password. Do that, hit OK, and you’re done.

When you restart your Mac, the OS X boot chime should no longer play. If you somehow decide you want the boot sound back, simply fire up Terminal again and, instead of the aforementioned command, use sudo nvram -d SystemAudioVolume.

Hope this guide was helpful. If so, leave a short comment below.


Mute start-up chime sound on Mountain Lion, OSX10.8

After update to OSX10.8, Mountain Lion, previous start-up sound mute application didn’t work.

There are many ways to tackle this down such as directly hack system sound information through a terminal, however, I prefer to use a single application which seamlessly disable annoying start-up sound with one installation.

StartNionja works for me and it says it supports OSX10.7+.

Here is the details and link.

Macs don’t have a built-in way to mute or silence the system start up chime. If you’re in a library or coffee shop you don’t always want that start up chime to play. Now you can silence the Mac OS X Lion start up chime with StartNinja. It is a free and simple desktop utility that silences the start up chime and will resume previous sound level after logging in.


Note 1: Does not work with iMacs

Note 2: The system start up chime is played through the internal speaker. If speakers or headphones are plugged in the system start up chime will still play.

안녕하십니까? macbook pro (snow leopard)를 쓰고 있는 한 유저 입니다. 항상 맥쓰사의 유저분들에게 많은 것을 배우고 갑니다.
오늘은 부팅시 나는 소리 조절하는 tool을 소개시켜 드릴까 합니다. 아무래도 다른 분이 이미 올렸을 가능성이 매우 크네요, 중복이라면 죄송합니다. 제가 짬짬이 여기서 찾아봤을 때는 만족할 만한 자료를 찾지 못해서(제 노력이 부족했겠지요 꾸벅) 중복일 수도 있으나 한 번 더 소개 시켜 드릴까합니다.


이건 dmg형식으로 된 파일로서 무료이고 어플이 아닌 mac에다가 install시키는 형식입니다. 파일안에 uninstall tool도 함께 들어있습니다. 까시면 system preferences 안에 other안에 startup sound라는 기능이 생성됐음을 확인하실 수 있으며 실행하면 아래와 같은 창을 보실 수 있습니다.

약 간의 도움이 돼셨으면 합니다.

ps. 사진이 올라갈런지 화신할 수 없군요. 미리보기에서는 보이는데… 처음이라 안보이신다면 죄송합니다. 위 대로 해보시면 금방알 수 있습니다. 죄송합니다.
