New Ubuntu Start-Up Sound Chosen

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The results of the recent Ubuntu Sound Theme survey, which asked users to pick a new start up for Ubuntu 12.04 from a†shortlist†of 4 sounds, are in.

The winning sound was was Sound 1 – which you can hear in the following video.

The next step for the Ubuntu Design Team and the soundscape creator is to work on adapting the sound to user feedback gained from the survey. This includes making the sound ‘more human, less synthesised’, lowering the pitch, and increasing ‘the warmth of the tone’.

If all of these tasks can be achieved to a satisfactory result then all that will be left is to land the chime in Ubuntu 12.04.

Happy with the result?
