console – How can I detect which app made that beep?

I’ve got some weird beeps coming intermittently from my computer, and I don’t know what is causing them.

Several minutes passed between each occurrence, and they’ve only happened twice so far, so troubleshooting by turning off apps and menu helpers could take a long time, and might be fruitless.

I looked for something in one of the logs in the Console app, but I didn’t see anything.

Is there any way to detect or lookup in a log what app sent alert noises? Is there any central point in the OS that controls this? If it is not possible to do this after the fact, would it be possible to create an app that monitors and logs this information, for just this situation?
