End of break sound not working for me

When the "End of break" sound is set to anything other than "system beep", no sound is played at all. This happens for micro- and normal breaks, including when the break is triggered from the TimeOut menu.

I have a new Mac Pro with all current software updates.

Re: End of break sound not working for me

How long is your fade out interval? The sound only plays while fading out, so if you have a long sound, or fade out very quickly (e.g. zero interval), the sound may be stopped before completing, or conceivably before you hear anything.

The sound also doesn't play when you postpone or skip a break, but I assume you're talking about a completed break.
