Type Stack
Introduced in 0.2
Removed in 2005

The Beep block was a stack block and a sound block. The block produced the system Beep sound as defined by the operating system. It was removed in May 28, 2005 for unknown reasons and made an obsolete block.

The beep block in 0.2.

Usage

In early development of Scratch, the Beep block used a system sound. In Windows, the default Beep sound is Windows_Background.wav (the windows error sound), so it will play the Windows error sound, or, in some cases, the BIOS beep. The effect on MacOS and other operating systems is unconfirmed, but is said that it does nothing[citation needed].

Workaround

Currently, there is no workaround to the system beep. However, the start sound () block can play a beep sound effect:

start sound (beep v)
