About SoundCenter

SoundCenter - Music, Sound Effects, Webradio and Voice Chat for Minecraft!


Development for SoundCenter is discontinued, but there is a great alternative that I like to recommend: MCJukebox

Version: v0.3

SoundCenter (formerly CustomMusic) allows you to set music boxes or regions that stream your own music, sound effects or webradio to all players in realtime. It also implements a simple voice chat for Minecraft.

To use the features that SoundCenter offers, you and everyone who wants to hear music and voice chat must download and use the SoundCenter client. You do not have to download or install anything. The client is running as a java applet on the website. You will get a message with a link to the client when you join the server. When you follow this link, the client will automatically connect. - Could not be easier.

Here's a video that shows how to use the plugin (Thanks to @jithins):

Development discontinued

Unfortunately I will no longer be able to work or give you support on this project. I am sorry that I couldn't implement all your awesome suggestions.
Thank you for almost 5 years of support, criticism, praise and blame ;) You are awesome!
If you are willing to take over this project, feel free to contact me.


  • You can set imaginary jukeboxes, cuboid areas or worlds and biomes as music stations
  • You can also use WorldGuard regions as stations
  • Stations can either play your own music/ sound effects, or webradio streams
  • You can use a command or the client to play songs for yourself, all players in a world, or all players on the server
  • You can use any supported audio file that is stored on a public webserver. Filehosters like DropBox will work as well.
  • Supported audio formats: MP3, for webradio also OGG
  • Everything is easily and intuitively managable with the client's user interface
  • Every feature is configurable
  • You can limit access with permissions

Extra Features:

  • Voice chat
    • SoundCenter adds a simple voice chat to your Bukkit server
    • You can speak locally (only players that are not far from you can hear you. Volume depends on their distance)
    • But you can also speak globally (The whole server can hear you)
    • You can disable voice chat on your server if you don't like this feature
  • many more to come

How does it work?
Okay so I have SoundCenter installed on my server, what can I do now? It's easy: Before or after logging into Minecraft, run the SoundCenterClient.jar. Now you can add songs in the "Music" tab, or add stations in the "Stations" tab. Boxes, areas or WorldGuard regions can be created ingame via /sc set <area|box|wgregion>. That's easier, because the box will be created at your coordinates. You can edit all properties of your stations by pressing the "Edit Station" button in the "Stations" tab.
For detailed instructions see the pages below.


How to use

F. A. Q.

Before you ask a question, take a look at the frequently asked questions.

    If development for this plugin is truly dead, I think it would be awesome if The Dark Forest and its team could take over development so that such a cool idea doesn't just die away. Any project files would help if you would like to send them: [email protected]

    My staff on my server has been looking for some way to play with sounds and such on my server and I figure it would not be a bad idea to keep this project updated if nobody has taken up that development role so that #1 My server can have custom alerts and sounds, #2 This plugin will not just be stuck at Minecraft Bukkit/Spigot 1.7.9, #3 I can improve what should be improved and maintain what should be maintained. Without constant work (as any software engineer knows) a project or software will quickly die and disappear. If you would like that not to happen please contact me if I am the only offer, and I will work dilligently to get this plugin back in a state where it will run properly.
