The Jukebox is the fourth tab of the Sidebar. This feature allows the GM to accesses the sounds and music from SoundCloud and Tabletop Audio.


Finding Music/Sounds

From the Jukebox, click the +Add button, then click Track to open a popup with tabs for audio options.


From the SoundCloud tab, use the dropdown menu to select if you're looking for background music, sound effects, or to search all of SoundCloud. Enter keywords in the search box to look for sounds.

You can also find a specific SoundCloud track by pasting its URL into the search field.

You can preview a track by pressing the Play button.

Tabletop Audio

From the Tabletop Audio tab, use the Search For: dropdown menu to filter the Tabletop Audio tracks available. Filter via All Tracks or by genre.

You can preview a track by pressing the Play button.

Using Your Own Music/Sounds

To add your own music or sound effects, you’ll need to create a SoundCloud account and upload your tracks to it. Make sure to set your SoundCloud library to Public which will allow Roll20 to stream your audio.

Adding tags such as “Roll20”, “ambient” or “orchestral” will allow Roll20’s search filter to locate your uploaded audio. It may require up to 15 minutes for Roll20 to locate your freshly uploaded track via a keyword search.

As noted earlier, you can also bypass searching for your audio track on SoundCloud by pasting its URL directly into the Roll20 Jukebox search.

Adding Tracks to Your Game

Add music/sounds from SoundCloud or Tabletop Audio directly to your current session's library by clicking the + button from the Jukebox popup next to the track you'd like to include.



Folders can be used to help organize music and sounds within the Jukebox. Jukebox folders are similar to Journal Folders in functionality, drag the handles that appear next to the track name to move items in and out of folders. The Jukebox folder system is only 1 deep, sub-folders are not available in the Jukebox.

Adding Folders

Click the +Add button, then click Folder. Name the folder in the popup and click Ok to add the named folder to your Jukebox.

Folder Options

Right click a folder to reveal folder options. You can sort, rename, or delete folders. Deleting folders does not remove the contents, all items in deleted folders are be moved to the root folder.

Renaming/Reordering Tracks

To rename a track, simply click on its title in the Jukebox tab of the Sidebar once it is added it to your game. Type a new name and press Enter to save. Tracks can be reordered in or out of a folder using the handle icon next to the track name or if the tracks are in a folder, they can be sorted alphabetically, by right clicking and selecting the option Sort A-Z.

Playing Music/Sounds in Game

Any tracks added to your game can be played by pressing the play button next to the track or folder in the Jukebox tab of the Sidebar. All players in the session will be able to hear the sounds. You can play more than one file at a time and all individual files can be looped by pressing the loop icon next to the track. Each track has its own volume control which can be used to normalize their volume.

Play from Folders

Folders have additions to their play options. Next to the name of the playlist you'll find a "Play" button as well as a toggle for the "Play Mode" of the playlist.


Back to Back

"Back to Back" indicates that each track will be played individually one after another. When the end of the playlist is reached, it will start again from the beginning. If an individual track is looped within the playing folder, using this option will cause the individual track to will just keep looping when the playlist gets to that track.


"Shuffle" indicates that the tracks will be played in a random order. Order is synchronized across clients, so that tracks will play in the same order for everyone. The playlist will continue playing shuffled until you pause it manually. You should not use looped tracks with this option or it will just loop the same track over and over.

All at Once

"All At Once" indicates that all tracks in the playlist will start playing once the playlist is began. Note that it is up to each track's individual loop settings to determine if it will loop after it plays once. You can mix and match looped and unlooped tracks with this option.

Now Playing Widget

At the top of the Jukebox is a small "Now Playing" widget. This tool is visible to players in game and will only display tracks that are currently playing. Pressing "Play" will add tracks to the widget and GMs can stop directly from this widget.


Play from Page Settings

There is a new option under the Page Settings dialog box at the bottom which will allow you to choose a Jukebox track or Playlist which will automatically play when you move the players to the page. Note that this only takes effect when a GM moves the Player Ribbon to the page, not for the "split the party" feature (since the Jukebox is global, not player-specific).

Master Volume Control

In addition to the Game Master's control of individual track volume in the Jukebox tab, each person connected to the game can also use the Master Volume Control located under the My Settings tab to control the volume level of all music being played.
