I've navigated through the system files to /system/media/audio/ui to try to find the Samsung Keyboard noise, but alas, unable to find.

Anyone able to help me out on this? Is there an application that lets you modify application sounds? I understand the ogg file converter and pushing via cmd prompt, so if you could tell me where the Samsung Keyboard sound is that'd help the poppaloppin' noise is too loud for my taste. I know you can disable it but I prefer another sound. Thanks!

I was thinking the same thing. I have the Samsung Vibrant stock 2.2 and with the loud ticking noise it makes me want to turn my phone on silent. But rather than complaining and hating it, I want to make it better. like the older LG Quick messaging phones (I dont remember which model) had a full qwerty keyboard and every different button you pressed made a soft simple little note from a keyboard or piano or something. so whenever one of my friends was typing a text it sounded amusing listening to little songs that can be made by simple random letters being pressed.
So I would just like to know if anyone knows where these files are located, because finding them is the hardest part. making the noise would be nothing at all, it'd just take a few hours. just pull up a sound board and make different notes for each letter. Anyone have any ideas??

ok so if you get root explorer (obviously needs to be rooted) and go to
you will see the ".ogg" sound files. you can replace any of those, as long as you name them the same file names as the stock ones. I replaced mine with the linda voice
link -->

it also has an ".ogg" sound file for these:
"keypress standard" (regualr letters)
"keypress spacebar"
"keypress delete"
and "keypress return" I think was the last one (probably the enter button on keyboard)

I'm actually about to go home and play with those and see what I can make.
I still want to be able to do a different tone for each letter but have to look further into that. so far this is ok

Man I've done that 3 times now using the .ogg keyboard sounds I pulled from a different ROM I really wanted, but no matter how many times I delete the originals then rename mine exactly it stays the same! I'm losing hope and patience.
