AudioMod is one of Minecraft’s most useful modding utilities. It was designed by the same person who made ModLoader. Basically, AudioMod makes it easier to add new sound files to Minecraft’s engine, making AudioMod a valuable tool for both users and modders alike.

The mod itself has a fairly simple function. It upgrades Minecraft to play a number of different media files. By default, Minecraft can only play OGG, Wav, and Mus file formats. With AudioMod, that list expands to include XM, s3m, and Mod files.

Essentially, AudioMod 1.6 lets you add music to Minecraft, and it gives modders the ability to add new records and sound effects.

The only real downside to using AudioMod 1.6 is a slight increase in load times, as your computer may have to load several new files. Fortunately, the difference in load times won’t be overly noticeable, provided you haven’t added hundreds of new audio files to Minecraft.

To add custom music and sound files to Minecraft using AudioMod, you simply need to drag and drop audio files into the mod/music folder (for music) and mod/sound folder (for custom sounds). Each of these folders can be found under Resources in the Minecraft directory.

For custom sounds, you may have to specify the directory even further. For example, if you want to add a new step sound effect while walking on stone, you would put a new stone1.ogg file into mod/sound/ step. In-game, this new sound would be played alongside the original sound.
