Sounds Borealis for Windows

Sounds Borealis for Windows
Initially, this sound set was created for Linux-based operating systems, namely the KDE shell. But later it was adapted for Windows and now it can be used in any version: whether it is "7" or even Windows 10. There are several variants of the startup and restart sound. Each of them sounds very "soft" and very pleasant to the ear. The author positions them as "polar" or "northern lights" sounds and it's hard to disagree.

How to install files

  1. Download and unpack the kde-borealis.zip archive using 7zip;
  2. Move the folder containing the *.wav files to C:\Windows\Media.
  3. Press the Win+R key combination and type "mmsys.cpl", then press "OK". This will open the "Sound" window. You can also access it from the control panel or the settings menu.
  4. Set a melody for each state (Exclamation, Question, Closing the program, and others).
  5. Save the resulting scheme to the Windows memory (the "Save As" button), and then apply the changes with the "OK" button.
  6. The new sounds will start working immediately without rebooting the operating system.

Warning! Sounds of mp3 must be converted to wav extension.  A *.soundpack file cannot be installed using standard means. For it you will need SoundPackager program.
