LOL,

manuals, we dont need no stinkin' manuals...

At that age, the only manual perusing was to figure out which keyboard
key did what. I paid no attention to what treasures were there, I just
wanted to play. Now you've done it...

I'll have to go play it...

Other posts probably address this more accurately.  I wonder if there's
any connection between this and the way cassettes work.  Cassettes also
have a loading sound that can be muted, though the saving sound can't be
muted.

It seems to me it just turns the volume way down.  When I had an
XM301 modem, you could hear the phone dialing through the TV, and
when it connected, it silenced it much the same way.  But over time,
as my 130XE started to die, the sound would leech through a little
more.  At one point the modem caused a hum whenever it was plugged
in, and you could hear the data in the 300-baud signal.  Near the
end, the disk drive would only work if the modem was unplugged, so
it's a good thing I had that 64K ramdisk.

I rather liked the loading sound.  It was a happy sound, like the
Atari was excited about what it was loading.
