How To Play Music in Roblox
Roblox is an excellent way to make friends and explore video game programming, and you can even find some cool functions, such as playing music. From listening to files uploaded to the Experience or playing something through voice chat, Roblox has many ways you can do so. However, it can be tricky trying to enable these.
If you’re interested in playing music on Roblox, you’ve come to the right place. There are several ways to do so, and you can pick the one that best applies to your situation. Read on for all the details.
How to Play Music in Roblox
Roblox doesn’t always allow a specific way to play music in every game. Only some Roblox games allow this, so you’ll need to find one that has the function enabled. Radios and boomboxes let you play music anywhere, but they also cost Robux. The good news is you don’t need to spend money just to listen to some of your favorite tunes in the game.
Generally, the in-game methods will require you to enter song ID codes, which don’t always work. Here are the specific solutions and their instructions.
How to Play Music in Roblox Voice Chat
When playing in Roblox, you can easily go to the Settings menu and configure your audio settings. With some extra software, you can set up a virtual cable and send it to your Roblox microphone input. That way, anyone can hear you play music when you join the lobby.
One of the best programs for this job is VB-CABLE. You should install it first before launching Roblox.
Sending Music on Roblox Voice Chat
To send music on Roblox voice chat, follow these steps.
- Open the VB-AUDIO Virtual Control Panel.
- On the Windows Search Bar, look for “Sound Control Panel.”
- Under “Playback,” select the virtual cable before clicking “OK.”
- Under “Recording,” look for “CABLE Output” and also click “OK.”
CABLE Output will now have music playing through it if you run an audio file or watch YouTube.
- For CABLE Output, click on “Properties.”
- Go to the “Listen” tab and enable “Listen To This Device.”
- From the drop-down list in this section, pick your headphones or speakers.
- Go to Roblox and open its Settings menu before heading to “Input Device.”
- Ensure your input device is the virtual output while the output device on Roblox is set to your headphones or speakers.
- If no one can hear you, go back to the Sound Control Panel and select your microphone.
- On its “Listen” tab, select “Listen To This Device.”
- Apply the settings.
Because anyone can hear the music you play, we don’t recommend trying to annoy them. Instead, it’s best to do this only with friends during listening parties.
How to Play Music on Roblox Radio
The Roblox radio may not be available to everyone, as some game creators lock it behind a paywall. However, if you do have access, bring it up, and you should be able to enter the music IDs you like. Here’s how you can use it.
- In a Roblox Experience with radio access, equip it.
- Paste the code into the textbox.
- Click on “Play” to enjoy your favorite songs.
The Roblox radio differs from the boombox in that only you can hear the music being played. In addition, while the user interface is the same, the gamepass for one Experience won’t work in another. Therefore, if it’s locked behind Robux, you need to pay more to listen to your tunes elsewhere.
Gamepasses for playing music have different prices on Robux, as it’s all determined by the game developer. Therefore, you might need to spend 20 Robux in one Experience while shelling out 200 in another. It’s the only way unless all players have free radio access.
Other than simple playback, the Roblox radio has a mixer too. There are several settings you can adjust to alter the audio.
- RVB (Reverb)
Increasing the pitch and speed is one way to simulate nightcore music. At the same time, the chorus makes the sound seem larger and wider as if multiple sources are simultaneously playing similar tones. The reverb setting changes the soundscape, allowing you to pretend you’re listening to music in a cave.
As for echo, it replicates the signal and plays it again after a slight delay. These settings are optional, and you can use them as desired.
How to Play Music on a Roblox Boombox
The Roblox boombox is basically a radio that others can hear, which became a way for the player base to welcome newbies – they would play a certain song as a greeting. But these days are now over.
Since March 2022, Roblox deleted a large portion of copyrighted music from its catalog, and you’ll notice codes failing after a while. Therefore, users will have to find new codes to play if a different one doesn’t work anymore. Boomboxes now operate the same as radios, as no one can hear the audio.
- Equip the boombox and bring up the interface.
- Enter a music code ID.
- Play the audio.
You can still upload music to the Roblox catalog, though it will be private. Files must be MP3 or OGG files and under 20MB. Roblox also requires the audio to be clear and coherent, meaning the company may reject altered audio.
Here’s how to upload audio files to Roblox.
- Head to the Roblox website.
- Log in and click on “Create.”
- Select “Audio” and “Browse.”
- Search for a compatible audio file and upload it.
- Wait for the process to complete.
How to Play Music on Roblox Mobile
You can’t use the voice chat method to play music properly on mobile, as virtual cables aren’t normally accessible. However, you can still upload songs using the steps above but with some additional instructions.
- Go to the Roblox website on your mobile browser.
- Change to the desktop website.
- Log in.
- Tap on “Create” and search for an audio file.
- Upload the audio file.
Playing music on the mobile version of Roblox is only possible using a boombox or radio. The user interface is the same, but you’re going to have to type in information in this method.
- Go to a game that supports radios and boomboxes.
- Equip the boombox or radio.
- Enter the song ID.
- Play the music and enjoy.
How to Play Music in Brookhaven on Roblox
In the Brookhaven Experience, you must purchase a gamepass before gaining music access. It’s different from the radio and boombox and will be counted as a separate expense. Once you have the pass, follow these steps to play music.
- Spawn a car from the vehicle menu.
- Get into the vehicle.
- Click on the speaker icon that appears.
- Enter or paste a song ID code.
- Click on the play button to start listening.
As with other ways that involve these codes, not all are guaranteed to work. You can only keep trying and hope something is still accepted.
Brookhaven is a role-playing Experience that allows players to enjoy the upper-class life. Since you can drive vehicles around, listening to music while on a ride is possible. The gamepass for this Experience costs 199 Robux and can be purchased by either visiting this page or using the in-game store.
If you’re at home, you can also play songs, but the best experience is while driving.
How to Play Music on a Roblox Piano
Roblox has a piano-based Experience called Piano Keyboard v1.1, where you take the role of a pianist and entertain anyone nearby. When you load into the game, you can observe a large piano in the middle of a grassy plain. Unlike a standard grand piano, this one only has 61 keys.
Each note on the piano is played by pressing the corresponding key on your keyboard. Pressing the Space bar also lets you display sheet music, which is perfect for performances.
Playing piano music in Roblox is that simple. Aside from having fewer notes than a standard piano and lacking the pedals, you can play anything you want, provided you stay within the Roblox piano’s range.
While not the same as an actual piano or keyboard, of course, you can still find yourself spending hours trying to play a melody perfectly. The sound samples are pretty accurate too.
Listen to This
Roblox has been one of several ways gamers explored the basics of game development, as well as delving into new, more advanced worlds. Some of them let you listen to your favorite tracks through gadgets, while others let you be the star and play your own stirring melodies. No matter what you like, there’s always a way to listen to something.
