How To Enable Soundboard In Discord

Hey there fellow Discord users! Today, I want to talk about something that has added a whole new level of fun to my Discord experience – the soundboard. If you’re not familiar with a soundboard, it’s essentially a collection of audio clips that you can play at the push of a button. Whether you want to add some comedic sound effects to your conversations or simply express yourself in a unique way, enabling a soundboard on Discord can definitely take your interactions to the next level.

Why Use a Soundboard on Discord?

Now, you might be wondering why you would even want to use a soundboard in the first place. Well, let me tell you from personal experience – it’s a blast! Imagine yourself in a voice chat with your friends, and you have the ability to play funny sound effects or even some catchy tunes to enhance the conversation. It can bring laughter, surprise, and even help create inside jokes among your friends. Plus, it’s a great way to express your creativity and show off your unique personality.

Enabling the Soundboard

Enabling a soundboard on Discord is a fairly straightforward process, but it does require a bot to be added to your server. There are several soundboard bots available, but for the purpose of this article, I’ll be using the popular “FredBoat” bot as an example. Here’s how you can get started:

  1. First, make sure you have the necessary permissions to add a bot to your server. You’ll need to be either an administrator or have the “Manage Server” permission.
  2. Next, visit the FredBoat website and click on the “Add FredBoat to your server” button.
  3. Choose the server you want to add the bot to and authorize it. Make sure you grant all the necessary permissions.
  4. Once the bot is added to your server, you can start using it by typing commands in the chat. For example, to play a sound effect, you can use the command “!play “.
  5. There are various sound effect libraries available for FredBoat, and you can even upload your own custom sounds if you have specific clips you want to use.

Creating Your Own Soundboard Bot

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to take your soundboard game to the next level, you can even create your own soundboard bot using a programming language like Python. With the library, you can build a custom bot that can play audio clips with just a few lines of code. It’s a great way to customize your soundboard experience and add your own personal touch.


Enabling a soundboard in Discord can truly enhance your interactions and bring a whole new level of enjoyment to your server. Whether you choose to use a pre-made bot like FredBoat or go the extra mile and create your own, a soundboard is a fantastic addition that can liven up any voice chat. Just remember to use it responsibly and consider the preferences of your fellow server members. Happy soundboarding!
