Sound settings

The Sound settings section is used to configure the system alert sound that is used in Workbench.

The alert can optionally sound and simultaneously flash the screen.

The type of sound can be set to either a tone, which is configurable by means of the volume, pitch and length slider bars. Alternatively it can play a sound sample which can be pre-loaded from a location on the hard drive.
