    Hmmmmm. I looked around and didn't find it either. I'll keep hunting and let you know if I turn something up.

    The alarm sounds are set individually with each alarm. Open up the screen where you can set alarms, then look below "Description" and it says "Alarm Sound."

    So, in steps, that's:
    Clock>Slide bar at bottom to Alarms>Add alarm>Alarm sound.

    Is there any way to specify a default alarm sound so I don't have to change it after adding a new alarm? Mine is set to "growl" which is so freaking loud and annoying. Using evo on cm6

    So the thread is several years old now and yet Google still hasn't fixed this simple problem.

    So, after I was late for work because the nice alarm sound I used was locked in as the default I found out how to change it on my Droid Maxx, may work for others. I used the voice recognition to set an alarm, opened that alarm and changed the alarm sound to the rooster alarm. I then set a second alarm and it showed the rooster alarm as the default. So, it is possible to change it, just a shame it isn't an option in sounds like it was on my Bionic. Ease of navigation is something people like and Google better realize that, the price on the iPhone 6 was actually cheaper than my phone...and I understand it is more user friendly than before.

    it's very simple
    first download "Es file Explorer file manager" application from play store
    then go to the location where song is saved
    like in my case I want to set a whatsapp audio that my friend send me as an alarm...
    so I went to file manager then whatsapp folder then whatsapp audio folder and I clicked on the audio it gave option to open in which application such as Google play music and es media player
    click on es media player then there's a three vertical dots at top right click on that and set Ringtone then set as alarm click on it.... That's done now your song will be available but you have to select it
    go to clock
    click on sound and your song will be available click on that....
