By default on Mac OS X there is a system-wide notification sound that you can choose. This sound is applied to every application and played whenever the application outputs a beep (for instance, when typing a keyboard shortcut that doesn't work, or during a terminal beep). Is there any way to change what sound this is on a per-application basis?

Specifically, I'm looking to change the sound Terminal.app uses, while every other app uses another sound.

Terminal uses the sound that is active upon its launch. If you could automate changing the sound and wrap the application launch in a script, that might be a workaround. – Daniel Beck Jun 21 '11 at 6:37
