    SoundCenter - Music, Sounds and Voice Chat for your Server!

    Version: v0.1

    CustomMusic is back! Now as SoundCenter!

    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.
    In the future SoundCenter will add a lot of cool audio features to minecraft, such as sound effects on events.

    To give you a very little idea of what it does (video is not up-to-date):

    More info on:

    or on BukkitDev

    • You can set imaginary jukeboxes, cuboid areas or worlds and biomes as music stations
    • Stations can either play your own music or sound effects, or webradio streams
    • You can also play music globally on the whole server
    • You can upload your own music files easily via the SoundCenter client
    • Supported audio formats: mp3, midi, ogg (for webradio only)
    • Everything is easily and intuitively managable with the clients user interface
    • Every feature is configurable and 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 to do now?
    It's easy: Login to your server. If you are not running the client yet, you will see a message with a link to www.sound-center.com. If you follow this link, the SoundCenter client will load and automatically fill in the required information to connect to your server.
    Press connect - now you can add and upload your songs in the "Music" tab, or add biomes or worlds to your stations. If you want to set boxes and areas, you can do this ingame via /sc set <area|box>. 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 on how to install or use the commands visit the HOW TO USE section on BukkitDev.

    CB version? CM version? When does this happen, upon upload or download? Is this in the Audio Client or from the server console? Have you tried another file?

    I get this error in the Audio Client. Everything on the server side has been initialized fine and running. I tried more then one MP3 and all of them do the same error. This error only pops up when you come in contact to a jukebox.

    same as ChadTheDJ on the newest CM and CB version

    The PC Tech Guy

    "Newest" means nothing. We need the exact version. Newest dev-CB build, or recommended build? (Also, two RBs were posted recently.) And, since it's the audio client, what OS are you using for the Audio Client? We need more information.

    To let you know, CB 740 is already out and promoted. Are you attempting to run the Audio Client on Windows Web Server 2008 R2? Or is that what you run the CustomMusic plugin?

    (FYI, I don't develop the plugin or such, but he's going to need this information (and maybe more, who knows) in order to fix it.)

    Yes you're right. Thanks for your help.
    I will take a look at this when I'm back home on tuesday. Until then, everybody with this error please give me as much information as you can.

    The PC Tech Guy

    No, are you running the AudioClient program on Windows Web Server 2008 R2? I'm not asking anything about a soundcard right now.

    Hello, I have set up this plugin on my small private server for a small community, and it works great for me, I have had no problems with it, but a couple of my friends are unable to get the startclient to work properly.

    When my first friend (Komo) tries to run the startclient, he gets this error

    "'Java' is not recognized as an internal or external command"

    I'm not sure if I need to edit a file path into the startclient (It's very hard to get him to tell me what a file path is to java.exe >_<) I'm not sure if the file path is the solution or not.

    My second friend (Wordsmith) runs on a mac, and I set up the startclient as instructed on the Faq, but when he tries to run it, he gets the error

    "no default application specified to open the document"

    I figure this is a mac problem, and I don't know anything about macs, so I came here for help. If I missed any information you need please tell me, any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Is there any way to make the client hear music without running a bat file and each time typing /cm init in the game? It would be nice, if it would run automatically after minecraft.jar has been launched weather with the help of exe launcher on windows or without on other machines. I am developing a large, RPG and BUILD oriented server with already 4 different worlds, and for the atmosphere this plugin would be very good, though it lacks automacy, so that players don't have to do extra work in order to hear music, compared to a regular user, that plays minecraft without a server side music addon :)

    EDIT: Only server OPs and Admins would be allowed to set up music at certain spots in the world for the atmosphere, normal players could just automatically download them (not upload), and hear the music (Like in Counter-Strike:Source custom music is downloaded using a server administration tool to the client, after that is executed at server side, then players can hear the music)

    The best thing for this is for it to be a client mod. Otherwise, I have created an installer which includes this in it. I still have to test the clarity of messages, since I'd be sort of doing the same thing.

    You could maybe check how HD Patcher and other patching mods work for clients, that way you could give us the opportunity to patch the client, no matter how heavily it is modified by clients, because (from my knowledge), a patcher searches for a certain line in the minecraft.jar class files code, then adds the mod code below or replaces required fields. (Not 100% sure, it is just a guess). Personally, I don't know much about java, but it doesn't look that hard, could be doable, it is a matter of time as usual, which I don't have so won't try to make something like you did myself, will hope you think about what I wrote above and think of a solution!

    Hope someone could help you with this, the sad part is that from the time I am signed up here at bukkit forums, many plugin developers don't seem to like client side mods, so support in client mods here is very small. Allways when I see comments from most of them, when someone asks something, that can't be done without editing client, they usually burry that topic with things, like not possible etc, and always get the negative feeling about it from them, it's like they hate such requests or something =/

    I Have a Suggestion if you can do it

    I would Love to have the Mp3's to be able to be triggered. Like when you kill someone PvP.

    You kill someone and it sets a Music box where you are at the time and Play a MP3 you set as your Kill song Playing for 15 sec (config) maybe also make the person hear it when they respawn incase the respawn fast :p (config) And have it where kill boxes delete them selfs after the 20 sec . If you kill a second person it will shut down your first box and move it to new location and start again.

    no solution for my problem? :/

    I see an issue. When having a library of more than approximately 20 songs, there is no way to see the songs at the top of the list. They are cut off, due to Minecraft's chat size limitations. Is there any way you could add page support? This is greatly needed I think.

    I love the plugin. Very well designed.

    Is midi support any closer to seeing the light of day?

    Everyone may be ignoring me, but again - to work on mac you *must* change the start.bat to start.command. If it doesn't work, try using "chmod a+x path/to/start.command" in terminal.

    I did see your post about mac, but I don't remember reading a part about changing it from start.bat to start.command, I will try this.

    Help? What should the text in the startclient.bat look like? I am using windows vista and the startclient.bat and ALL audioclient files are in my plugins folder(Makes it easier to manage).
  24. Hey, could you please please help? How do i put my name in start client? I really want this mod so much so i hope someone helps me! :)

    I am running on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, so we might have the same issue running the AC client.

    I will add this to the to-do list, but with lower priority.

    You're right, i will change this.

    added to to-do list. thanks :)

    Don't put the AudioClient into your plugins folder. You need to run it on your PC where you play Minecraft, not on your server.

    Point 4 of the FAQ should work for your first friend.
    immac636's solution should work four your second friend :)

    I will look into building client mods when i'm done with the (imo) more important features. (midi, ogg support)

    Maybe when everything works fine without bugs i will think about adding such a feature. Maybe it's possible to use more events than only Player kills but this has very low priority.

    I wasn't at home last week so unfortunately i couldn't work on it. I don't know if i can get it done this week.

    Sorry i haven't seen this before. I will add it to the FAQ, thanks.

    check the how-to section.

    You can edit it with a simple text editor (e.g. notepad).

    @KevGraf94 @DeadStarr
    Are you running the AudioClient on your server? (You shouldn't/needn't)
    You need to run it on the computer on which you play minecraft.

    @WegFetZ Oh, *facepalm* I will test this out tonight. So NO AC on the server but only client side. Gotcha

    Yep, that's why it's called AudioCLIENT ;)

    I love this plugin, but I do have two suggestions for when you can get around to it.

    I would love if you could set axis-specific values to the range, so for example x & z range could be 100 and y range could be 20, so the music would play for a large distance, but only underground. Also, a fade threshold would be nice, like for example you have a box playing at a range of 100, the music will remain at its loudest from 0-80, and then fade from its loudest to nothing from 80-100 (but of course, these numbers would be customizable, maybe by a ratio from 0-1, where 0 is loudest at the center and fades with any distance, and 1 = full volume right to the edge?)
