Start Up Apple Sound Effect Song

Apple played a fun song leading into their October 18 redesigned MacBook Pro debut event which was composed entirely of sound effects captured from 45 years of Apple products.

If you’re a longtime Apple fan you’ll undoubtedly recognize many of the sounds, from boot chimes, alerts, ringtones, chargers plugging in, and so much more.

The song was created by producer A.G. Cook (presumably no relation to Apple CEO Tim Cook), and is a fun listen.

Video embedded below:

The YouTube description of the video is as follows:

“Artist-Producer A. G. Cook creates a song from scratch using only the iconic sounds of Apple products from the last 45 years.

Apple sounds used: iMac G3 Startup, MacBook Pro Startup, AirPods Case Closing, iOS Alert, HomePod Minimum Volume, iPod Click Wheel, Note Alert, Email Whoosh, MagSafe Charger, Night Owl Ringtone, HomePod Nope, HomePod PingPong, Mac 2020 Alert, Empty Trash, Message Sent, Message Received, HomePod Device Identify, iPhone Keyboard, Airdrop Invite, Mac Sosumi, Apple Pay”

I admit I am not sure I could identify a 45 year old sound effect in the song (something from the Apple I or Apple II?) but the early Macintosh sounds like ‘Sosumi’ I certainly recognize.

Anyway, enjoy.

Oh and the full Apple Event video is also on YouTube if you’re interested in watching it too, it’s just under an hour.
