Audio Files

Follow

Roblox offers developers many ways to make their games immersive and dynamic. One of these ways is through the use of audio. Players can upload mp3s or OGG files and can then add them to their places as background music, narration, sound effects and more!

How to Upload

Uploading can easily be done through the roblox.com website. To do this:

  1. Log into your account on roblox.com
  2. Click Develop in the blue bar at the top of the screen
  3. Click on Audio
  4. Click Browse, and select an audio file
  5. Once selected, click Estimate Price to determine the Robux cost of your upload
  6. After you make your selection click Purchase for XR$ to finalize your purchase

Note: Audio uploads must be less than 6 minutes, smaller than 10.0 MB, clear and easy to understand. This means that audio cannot be sped up, slowed down, or had its volume excessively altered; and must otherwise meet our Roblox Rules of Conduct.

Cost of Audio Files

20 Robux for 0-10 seconds

35 Robux for 10-30 seconds

70 Robux for 30 seconds-2 minutes

350 Robux for 2 minutes-7 minutes

Configuring Audio

Once uploaded, the audio file can be further customized on the Configure page. To locate this page, click on the gear-icon located to the right of the uploaded file in the Audio tab of your Develop section.

The Configure page has the following options:

  • Name: Allows you to change the audio file's name
  • Description: A summary of the audio file
  • Turn comments on/off: Choose whether or not this item is open for comments
  • Genre: Classify your audio to help people find it 
  • Make Free: Choose whether or not this item is freely available to all users. If this is not checked, the audio will only be able to be used by you

Note: Names and descriptions are subject to our white/blacklist filters. For more information on these filters please click here.
