You've been listening to this mans music all your iLife, and you didn't even know it. Here's how:

Jim Reekes worked at Apple from 1987-1999 and was a key contributor to the QuickTime team in System 7, creating the company's innovative audio architecture, which earned him two patents. But, what makes him famous is that he created the Mac startup sound. In addition, he created the camera shutter that appears when you take a picture on iOS devices or when you take a screenshot on your Mac, and he also created the famous "Sosumi" noise, which appeared in System 7 in 1991 and is still in Macs today.
