    Thanks kalina1, you solved the problem.

     

    Under Mavericks the old trick doesn't work anymore. Calendar resaves the "com.apple.iCal.plist" file everytime it is used and erases the line "Default alarm sound...". It looks like that's why the default sound always reverts to "Basso".

    Meidas, if you try HunterS suggestion it will work. You need to tick the box ical preferences 'Add a default alarm to all new events and invitations'. THEN you go and change the script in com.apple.ical.plist as per John Maisey's suggestion on page 1 of this discussion. Hope that helps

     

    alternately, you can open the com.apple.ical.plist

     

    Go to lines 5 and 6

    <key>Add default alarms</key>

              <false/>

     

    Change FALSE to TRUE

    <key>Add default alarms</key>

              <true/>

     

    Then go down to lines 25 & 26

    <key>Default alarm sound</key>

              <string>Basso</string>

     

    And change Basso to GLASS or whatever default sound you want

     

    <key>Default alarm sound</key>

              <string>Glass</string>

     

     

    Cheers

    Syl

    Kalina1,
    Thank you so much for this amazingly simple idea.   I don't know why I didn't think to do this before but you thought around the problem and that's worked out wonderfully.

     

    I've been trying to fix this for weeks and none of the remedies mentioned above worked in Mavericks.

     

    Well done, and thanks again!
