Hello Fellow Matlabbers,
I am using Matlab 2013a on OS X. The beeps being emitted by the editor are driving me crazy (especially while using headphones). After running "beep off" Matlab appears to believe that beeps are off:
>> s = beep
s =
However, when I type things like "case" or have partial parentheses I still hear beeps. Is there some other variable I can turn off? I really don't want to have to switch over to emacs as my editor, but these beeps are horrible.
Thank you, Kyle

You can change the the error sound file to something that does not have any sounds.
This way when anything that emits a beep fires, nothing plays. beep off only shuts it off for errors.

I believe BEEP OFF turns off the beep when there is an error. Partial parenthesis are not an error (although if you run code with them it will cause an error). I don't have MATLAB in front of me, but there is an option under preferences about BEEP and parenthesis.

There is NO way to turn off the beep. To illustrate this, go to the command prompt (with all your beep settings offed) and just push the down key. This loops through the command history, and when you reach the end of it... you guessed it... BEEP

Hi, if you check the preferences (this is for MATLAB 2015B) there is an option, as another answer mentions, to turn it off. Please see the attached screenshot, where you can turn the noise off by going to preferences, and then to keyboard settings, and setting the delimiter matching to none instead of beep. This turned the noise off for my console.
