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

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 use the SoundCenter client, which is running on
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):


  • 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: When you login to your server, you will see a message with a link to When you follow this link, the SoundCenter client will load and automatically fill in the required information to connect to your server. 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.

    I really like SoundCenter. It would be nice if you could make it to where I can have the music play as long as my server is online, instead of me having to stay logged in the whole time. Maybe make it to where the applet runs inside of the server folder that way as long as the server is running it will play music without me having to be logged in and running the applet at all times. Thanks!

    @carlnorm: Go

    There seems to be a bug that can reset the database on a restart. Until I can fix this bug, please try to configure your regions and do a proper server shutdown before starting it again. The data should then be saved.

    @FunnyGames: Go Seems like you are not running version 0.301 of the plugin, but version 0.2. Please delete SoundCenter.jar and download v0.301 again. If it doesn't work, please send me your server log.

    I don't know when the next version will be ready. I'm still busy with exams for at least two weeks and I will be in holidays afterwards ;) But I promise I will work on it as soon as I get some spare time.

    When I start up the Client of SoundCenter.. (version 0.305) And I connect to my server.. (version 0.301) There stands: "Connection refused: Incompatible version. Required versions 0.2 - 0.299" But how can I fix this when i use the newest versions in Spigot 1.8?

    Hey I've managed to install the plugin and add a few songs which work when I use /sc play but any regions/boxes/areas I create do not play the songs once they are entered. I've done /sc status and it recognizes that I am in the area and I've added the songs to the areas song lists but nothing plays, any idea what Im doing wrong?

    Edit: Unsure if this is related but I did a server restart which then removed all music links and areas

    Please go to the plugin config and set debug mode to "true". Then reload the server, set some boxes, areas etc. and stop your server. When it is shutdown, start it again and send the server log file to [email protected]

    Thanks for your help!

    You're welcome ;)
