The applause from the Saxxy Awards on the main screen is driving me insane. I don't want to turn my entire sound off for it, though.

Is there a way to disable specific sounds, especially those on the main/home screen?

Open the console (must be enabled in Keyboard Advanced Options- default key: '~').

Enter this:

sv_cheats 1

(You can bind this to a key with something like bind KP_ADD "sv_cheats 1; stopsound".)

Alternately, you can override the Saxxy sound resources with silent ones.
