Minecraft Playsound List

Are you are making a map or mini-game? Or any Minecraft command creation? Certainly, you want to populate it with cool sounds to improve the player experience.

Sounds in games make a ton of difference!

That’s why I want to share useful sounds for map-making to use with the playsound command in Minecraft PE (Bedrock). Also, you will find at the bottom of the page the Minecraft playsound list.

How to use the playsound command

The playsound command allows us to play sounds in Minecraft, let’s see how to use it.
You can also write the command inside a command block.

/playsound <sound> [player] [position] [volume] [pitch] [minimumVolume]
  • sound is the name of the sound, you’ll find the full Minecraft playsound list at the bottom of this page.
  • player is the target selector of the player that you wish to play the sound for.
  • position is optional. It is the x, y, z coordinates (separated by space). You can use relative coordinates (~ ~ ~)
  • volume is optional. You can hear the sound within a range from the position. The higher the value, the larger the range and the further away the sound can be heard.
  • pitch is optional. It determines the pitch for the sound effect, the higher the value, the higher the pitch. It is usually a value between 0.1 and 2.0, even though lately I noticed you can go beyond 2.0.
  • minimumVolume is optional. It determines the minimum volume that the sound will be heard outside of the audible range. It can be a value between 0.0 and 1.0.

For instance, let’s say you want to play a success sounds to all players regardless of where they are. So, to make sure the sound can be heard everywhere we can use a good old /execute command.

/execute @a ~ ~ ~ playsound random.levelup @s

TOP 10 Playsound I use

Where are Minecraft sound files?

In Minecraft Bedrock edition sounds names are in the sounds.json file in the vanilla resource pack. (https://aka.ms/resourcepacktemplate)

This is a collection of the sounds from the vanilla Minecraft playsound list I find most useful when creating maps. (and I use quite often!)
A quick pro-tip: change the pitch, it can make a completely different sound!

SUCCESS SOUNDS:
random.levelup
random.orb
note.pling

execute @a ~ ~ ~ playsound random.click @s ~ ~ ~ 1 1.6

Add custom sounds to Minecraft

Further, you can even add custom sounds to Minecraft using a resource pack. It can be the sound you recorded or ones you find on sound effects website. (I recommend freesound.org for free sounds)

The steps for Minecraft Bedrock:

  1. Firstly, prepare your sound as a .ogg file. (You can convert to .ogg using the free software Audacity)
  2. Secondly, in your resource pack folder create a /sounds directory (if not existing)
  3. Then in the folder create a sound_definitions.json file. Now you need to define your new sound. The JSON object name is the name you’re going to use in the playsound command. To simplify, look at the example below, it is “custom.crowd”.
  4. As a good practice, I suggest organizing your sounds in a /custom subfolder and keep them organized in categories.
  5. Finally, inside the sounds array, place the path to the sound.
{
    "custom.crowd": {
        "sounds": [
        "sounds/custom/crowd"
        ]
    }
}

The full Minecraft Playsound List

The Minecraft playsound list is a long table extracted from the sounds.json file in the vanilla (default) resource pack.

Search the playsound you need from the list

In short, Press Ctrl + F (the two keys at the same time) to use the browser search function into this page and type the sound you need. On macOS, you need to use Cmd + F.
In general, look for a “Find on page” function somewhere in the browser menu. 🔍

If you’re interested, I also made a Minecraft particle names list.
