HeadphonesThe ability to upload custom sounds is a feature that’s changed the tone of ROBLOX since its launch in September. Horror games have gotten more atmospheric, competitive games have become more exciting, and many of the games leveraging the feature have a personal sonic touch that was previously absent. Now that we’ve made it through the holiday season, we’re fulfilling two of the most requested enhancements to sounds: allow them to be longer and reduce the cost.

As of today, the time limit on sound uploads has been extended from 15 seconds to 120 seconds. At the same time, we’ve reduced the cost of uploading a sound from 250 ROBUX to 100 ROBUX. We’ve heard what sounds can bring to a game and we want to hear more. The increased time limit opens doors to more fleshed-out soundtracks, while the reduced cost makes it easier for developers to upload a greater variety of sounds.

To create a sound, go to the Develop page and click “Audio” in the left-hand menu. From there, you can select a file saved to your computer and upload for 100 ROBUX. We recommend you explore this simple demo level for a couple examples of how sounds can be implemented in a game.

Enjoy the newfound flexibility!
