It’s been a while since there has been a post on Blue Distortion, so, I decided to upload a pack of sound effects that were made specifically for Pidgin, a multi-protocol instant messaging (IM) client for Linux, BSD, MacOS X, and Windows. These can also be used for Trillian, Miranda and any other IM clients that allow you to customize the sound events.
The volume of the samples aren’t maximized / normalized so they won’t scare the hell out of you when you have the volume up really loud on your computer. There are 12 alert sounds and 4 separate login and logout sounds. More coming soon!
20 sounds – 2.8 MB
To change the sounds for Pidgin, do the following. It’s quite easy.
- In the Buddy List window, press CTRL + P or select Tools > Preferences.
- Select the tab Sounds.
- Highlight a sound event and click the choose button.
