How do I turn off the "BUMP!" sound when I walk into something?

Question

I have built a forest with some paths running through it. As I walk along the paths I hear a "BUMP!" sound when (I guess) my foot hits the side of the path or a root next to the path. I'm told I can "Edit" the sections of the path to eliminate this "BUMP!" sound. 

Where is the control in "Edit" that allows me to turn off the "BUMP!" sound in the various pieces of the forest?

Thanks!

Emma! Thank you so much! The replies to your Q included this priceless gem!

" You can turn off the little BUMP sound, but only if you use the Firestorm viewer. Open Advanced >> Debug Settings and look for FSPlayCollisionSounds.  Set it to FALSE and the BUMP goes away."

You probably also noticed my second comment in that old thread:

It is sort of annoying but it's also realistic.  Try tiptoeing around your house in the middle of the night to see if you can walk easily without making little audible footsteps.  I think the big difference is that those sounds are so familiar in RL that we learn to ignore them. The balance between them and everything else we hear is different too.

The longer you are in SL, the more those foot sounds become familiar bits of background noise that you don't even notice.  Until then, you can adjust the Sounds slider in your viewer's master sound control panel (the speaker symbol in the far upper right corner of the screen) to make all system sounds softer without affecting the volume level for other things like music.
