CLAIMS:

1 . A method of producing sound from an aerosol-generating device comprising a sound generator and an aerosolizer to generate aerosol from one or more types of an aerosol-generating substrate, the method comprising:

monitoring a user action;

retrieving a sound from a plurality of sounds based on a type of the aerosol-generating substrate, the plurality of sounds comprising two or more sounds emulating the sound of a conventional use of a smoking material; and

producing the sound using the sound generator based on the monitored user action.

2. An aerosol-generating device comprising:

an aerosolizer to generate aerosol from an aerosol-generating substrate;

a sound generator; and

a controller configured to:

receive, from a plurality of sounds including two or more sounds emulating the sound of a conventional use of a smoking material, a sound based on a type of the aerosol-generating substrate; and

initiate production of the sound using the sound generator.

3. The method according to claim 1 or the device according to claim 2, wherein the plurality of sounds is stored in a memory of the aerosol-generating device.

4. The method or device according to claim 3, wherein the user action comprises one or more of: a user puff and engagement of an actuator.

5. The method or device according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein the type of the aerosol-generating substrate represents one or more of: a type of substrate material, a type of smoking material emulated by the substrate, a substrate electrical conductivity value, a substrate capacity, and a substrate color.

6. The method or device according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein the type of aerosol-generating substrate is determined based on an identifier coupled to the aerosol-generating substrate or the aerosol-generating device.

7. The method or device according to claim 6, wherein the identifier comprises one or more of: an electronically-stored code, a wireless tag, a barcode, an electrical conductivity value, and a color.

8. The method or device according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein the type of the aerosol-generating substrate is received from a user interface device based on a user selection.

9. The method or device according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein the sound emulates a masking noise.

10. The method or device according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein the sound comprises information for a user.

1 1 . The method or device according to claim 10, wherein the information provides: an instruction to use or maintain the aerosol-generating device, a status of the aerosol-generating device, or both.

12. A non-transitory computer readable storage medium including a computer program stored which, when run on programmable electric circuitry, causes the programmable electric circuitry to perform the method according to any one of claims 1 and 3 to 1 1 .

13. A user interface device comprising:

a communication interface to communicate with the aerosol-generating device according to any one of claims 2 to 1 1 ;

a display comprising a user interface to present one or more graphical elements to configure the aerosol-generating device; and

a controller operably coupled to the display and communication interface, the controller configured to:

display the one or more graphical elements on the display;

allow a user selection using the one or more graphical elements via the user

interface to configure the aerosol-generating device; and

communicate with the aerosol-generating device using the communication interface to configure the aerosol-generating device based on the user selection.

14. The device according to claim 13, wherein the user selection defines one or more of: a type of aerosol-generating substrate, a specific puff sound mode, a generic puff sound mode, an instruction mode, an error message mode, an operational message mode, a substrate detection mode, a substrate selection mode, a data download mode, a configuration mode, a volume level, and an audio quality level.

15. A system comprising:

the aerosol-generating device according to any one of claims 2 to 1 1 ; and

the user interface device according to claim 13 or 14.
