SonoAlti® has 64 different types of alarms that can be used. Although one can use any alarm one wishes, certain alarms (those higher-pitched ones) are intended to be freefall alarms and others are intended for canopy or ascent because of their acoustic characteristics. In the table below, a check indicates which alarms were originally intended for what purpose; a red check (✓) indicates that this alarm is one of the default alarms. Swoopers might consider
using alarms intended for freefall when swooping, or increasing the canopy alarm volume due to the high wind noise experienced while swooping. The 63rd alarm is silent so that one can insert silence in between freefall alarms for those not wanting the alarms to run together. The examples given use the default alarm pitch and tempo settings of 4.0 kHz and 100%, respectively.
