Tweaking swift notification sounds

swift notification sounds can be found under your installation path under sounds: swift-0.8.7-64bit\share\sounds. Starting with swift 0.9.1 you can have your own sounds directory and any file found there is used instead of the swift file


  • the file names are self-explantory
  • if you place the corresponding file in your directory you will hear the "new sound" (restart required)
  • You can test the sounds in the audio settings (if you select a notification sound the sound will be played)
  • to use a new file you need to restart swift

Share your sound files

If you have cool sound notification files you can share them with other users.

  • the files have to be in .wav format
  • and have to be copyright free so we can publish them here
  • we need your CLA, see
  • Upload your file
  • all uploads without real name will be ignored (legal reasons)
  • you can find shared files under thirdparty{.interpreted-text role=“ref”}
