*Bip is not actually a sound file. It calls to hardware to make a noise using a simple sound command. So far, OSX refuses to use it as a System Sound, but it will work as an alert in other Apps (i.e. Mail).

**NewBip is a recording of Bip using wiretap. the original Bip is still included to be true to the original intention of the Classic Sound Pack (after all, it is possible that hardware beeps on different machines may sound different).

Special Thanks
I would like to thank Karl Laurent and Ginger Lindsey for help in locating and converting some of these sounds.
