The documentation says "to disable all error beeps set the length and frequency to 0. If you do, the BEEP command will still be operable, but will not produce sound unless you explicitly specify the frequency and duration." Nevertheless inkey and input beep very loudly.

How can I make input and input "quiet"?

Actually I was mistaken: the error happened in an interactive script and I used TCC_RT as executing shell. That's why it didn't pick up the settings of my interactive shell. "option //BeepLength = 0" made the beep silent.
