    Making sound when shutting down
    I noticed that as of recently, my MBP has been making the "Basso" sound right before my computer shuts down. I don't know when or why OS X would play the "Basso" sound but it kind of sounds like a bad warning. Any ideas on this?

    From what I've been reading it's not very simple to change your logout sound, so how you could have done it I don't know.

    But I found this open source extension SystemSound. It'll let you change the start up and shut down sounds. Maybe that'll help.

    If it is bugging you, go to Disk Utility and check that SMART Verified is reading okay.

    I checked that and it's a-ok.

    Is this by any chance the default shut down noise or this is actually a result of an error?

    Not installed anything using iTunes? Here is a link to an installed program for shut down sounds. It may help:-
