    Hey, anyone else having this issue - you can work around it by going into setting > sound > sound effects, and setting the alert volume to zero. This effectively disables the alert sound system-wide

    Having the same issue on Unity 2021.1.13 / OSX Big Sur. It happens after I open the new pop-out Search Unity window and so far I can only get rid of it by restarting Unity.

    I'm on 2021.1.13f1 and I keep having this problem. It doesn't always happen when I enter play mode but I can't figure out what causes it. Restarting Unity seems to help. Can we please mark this as not fixed

    I am still experiencing this on 2021.1.13f1.

    I am using the old input system, a fresh project. Super basic script using:

    if (Input.GetKey(KeyCode.W)) {
    dir.y += Speed;

    Beep beep beep! Doesn't happen every time I enter playmode, but far too often. I still don't know what triggers it.

    I'm using the new Input System, but I still use the old Input for a few things. It's the Input System WSAD controls that seem to cause most of the beeping.

    Mojave 10.14.6
    Unity 2021.1.9f1
    Input System Version 1.1.0-preview.3

    Same, in 2020- you can find this issue going back years, and I still havent found an answer- does anyone use Unity on Mac?
