Working in Pico-8 is pure delight. I think it would be even nicer if we had the option to set Pico-8 to play a brief sound analogous to a floppy disk drive when loading a program/cart.

Completely superfluous, but I would be very glad to have this option built in (even if it weren't the default and I had to enable it through a config file or menu).

What do you think?

Well, either way, the sound of plugging and unplugging media devices was a nice, mechanical experience. I was excited.

I still think we need a way to load programs from tape.

It would be pretty cool if it could be played as a 5th channel sound with restrictions.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, @profpatonildo.

I did this cart in tribute to Apple ]['s disk drive which makes this sound when booting a game.
