Loud Zen is the name of the startup sound of Macintosh computers with a 68040 CPU -- the Quadras.

During the days that I had a Mac IIci (with its 68030 CPU), I found the Loud Zen sound (in Mac OS sound file format) somewhere in cyberspace. It immediately became SuperClock's chime-the-hour sound on the IIci.

Loud Zen is the sound you heard when this page loaded. If you hang around, you'll hear it again ... and again ... and again ....
