There are a section of computer users out there who prefer to turn off all system sounds such as Windows start-up, shutdown and other notification sounds. And then there are users who would like to get notified with sounds.
Microsoft’s latest operating system Windows 7 comes with 14 different sound schemes so that the end user can assign different sounds to custom theme packs and change between default sound schemes. Users who find the default set of sound schemes not very interesting have options to customize sound schemes by adding your own audio file. One can go through our how to customize Windows 7 sound schemes guide for detailed instructions.
If you are tired of those default sound schemes in Windows 7 and would like to create your own custom sound scheme, here is a great freeware that lets you create your own fully customized sound scheme with a few clicks.
The program that we are talking here is iFX Seven Sound Creator. This program is similar to iFX Vista Sound Creator. iFX Seven Sound Creator is completely free and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows versions.
