Adventure contains an API to play any built-in or resource pack-provided sound. Note that not all platforms implement playing sound.

Sending a Sound

Sounds are referred to using Minecraft’s Keys (also known as Identifier or ResourceLocation). Any custom sounds from resource packs can be used. If a client does not know about sounds, it will ignore the sound (though a warning will be printed to the client log).

public void playMySound(final @NonNull Audience target) {
  // Play a built-in sound at the target's location with standard volume and pitch
  target.playSound(Key.of("music_disc.13"), Sound.Source.MUSIC, 1f, 1f);
  // Play a sound from our resource pack, with a higher pitch
  target.playSound(Key.of("adventure", "rawr"), Sound.Source.AMBIENT, 1f, 1.1f);

Stopping Sounds

A sound stop will stop the chosen sounds – ranging from every sound the client is playing, to specific named sounds.

Creating a custom sound

Use the sounds.json to define sounds in a resource pack.
