I’ve been thinking recently about reintroducing sound events into some of our web applications. The web has moved on from midi files as background music, and sounds on ever button with a web page. We’ve become more grown up when it comes to multimedia.
But perhaps now is the time for adding complimentary sounds to a web application.
Finding the right sounds for the job is aways a bit of a chore. I’ve found some useful sounds (in Apple AIF format) over at Adium (an IP app for Mac). Tokyo Train Station and Electric dream themes are particularly unobtrusive.
