Login & Awake Sound - The easy solution for playing music at log in and wake up

By Kai Engelhardt

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Login & Awake Sound is a tiny, but very useful app, that enables you to specify a sound or a music file, that is played every time you log in to your Mac or when your Mac awakes.

It's simple user interface lets you specify which sound file you want to be played at login or wake up (it won't let you change the startup chime that is played, when the Mac is powered on).

If you were a windows user, that has migrated to Mac OS X and you are missing the log in sound, this is the app for you.

If you have a very long sound and you want only a portion of it to be played Login & Awake Sound can help you. You can specify a range from where to where the sound is played.

To make your experience of Login Sound a pleasure Login & Awake Sound can fade the sound in and fade it out!

it's as simple as riding a bike!
Don't wait - use it.

Login & Awake Sound supports mp3, wav, caf, aiff and m4a file formats.

You can use a standard or administrator user account to set the login sound.

What's New in Version 2.0.0

+ You are able to play a sound when your machine awakes.
+ Added supported file formats : aiff, m4a.
+ Login sound can automatically quit itself after playing the login sound.

doesn’t work

It promises to do exactly what I’m looking for: play a sound file as soon as you login. Unfortunately it’s buggy — sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn’t. Seems to require you to activate both both Login and Awake settings even if you only want one. Hasn’t been updated in 6 years so I assume it’s no longer fully compatible with current MacOS. It should be removed from the App Store.

slightly dissatisfied

This app is pretty neat. It does play the sound at login, however, it also clips the last piece of it off. My sound is 3 words, it clips the last syllable of the third word. When they fix this I will be GREATLY happy! Until then, I am trying to figure out how to add 1 second of blank to my recording (a tv show sound effect).

Extremely awful

Wow, the developer knows there is a problem with the app and states “if it doesn’t work try…try…try to remove and reinstall”. Sorry, but you did not provide instructions to how to uninstall and how to re-download your program. Really now! If you provide some tech support, I would give you five stars just for getting rid of that awful start up sound of my iMac!
