Using the touch ring on a Wacom Intuos 5, when using brush size I sometimes get repeated bells when changing brush size.
I have the touch ring setup to alternate between zoom and brush size.
The first usage of brush size works fine. Moving to the next position on the touch ring (zoom) works fine. Moving to the next position (brush size) and I get repeated bells while the brush size increases and/or decreased. Next position zoom works fine. Next position brush size, ding, ding, ding. Next position zoom, works fine. Next position brush size, and it's bell time. Next position zoom works fine. Next position brush size works fine. (??????) It appears to be random as to if it will trigger the bells or not. I have reported this to Wacom support and they believe it may me a PS issue. Corel painter 12 seems to work OK.

Unless you're doing something to cause an error, Photoshop wouldn't even play the system beep. More likely it's something going wrong in the Wacom driver that plays the sound.

Same issue.... Had it for years and decided to check to see if there is a solution yet. Thinking about uninstalling the Windows 8 Tablet drivers and just utilizing the Wacom
