An Unobtrusive Alert Sound: 100 Submarine Pings

Last year I posted 5beeps.wav, a simple, unobtrusive alarm sound, useful for alerts and reminders.

That one only lasted a few seconds, so here’s something better: 100_sonar_pings.wav (3 minutes, 37 MB). It’s unobtrusive, yet insistent. Somewhat soothing, but also mildly grating. Perfect for an alert.

For a quick preview, check out the original single ping from Jilly’s Sample Pack (click the Repeat icon to repeat in a loop).
