Guide: How to add custom sounds

TidyLabs does not have a file uploader - This is by design.  The reason is because there are already thousands of free image / sound hosting sites out there, and it allows the TidyLabs service to operate at a low overhead.

In this guide I will show you how to add a custom sound to your alerts.

Step 1


Step 2

Create a free account, or log in with an existing account.

Step 3

Once logged in click the "UPLOAD SOUND"  link at the top right of the page.

Step 4

Upload your sound file!

Step 5

Go to your sound page, and RIGHT CLICK on "DOWNLOAD MP3"

Then select "Copy Link Address"

Step 6

Go back to your TidyLabs page and PASTE the URL into the sound text box.

Step 7

Click Save!

Step 8

Refresh your browser source in your streaming software.

  • "Right Click" the TidyLabs overlay
  • Click "Properties"
  • Scroll down and press the "Refresh Cache of Current Page"
  • Press "OK"
  • "Right Click" the TidyLabs overlay
  • Press the "refresh" button (top right)

Step 9

Send a test alert!

    1. If you would like to let me know your channel name, I can look into this for you :)

  2. i cant hear it for some reason

    1. Ensure that the sounds you are entering end with ".mp3"

      Please be sure to follow step 5 in the above instructions :)

  3. yep mine doesn't work either

    1. What is your DLive name & I will look into this for you

  5. My sounds don't work either and they have been working in the past.
    Is it because I just added Voice Meeter Banana?

    1. I figured it out. It was Voice Meeter Banana. But it was the virtual cables. After I installed the virtual cables, it switch the virtual cables to default. Which made the sounds not happen. After switching the Voice Meeter back to default, the alerts worked again.

    2. Thank you for your update :)

    1. It works fine, what is your DLive name?

    2. Docrage is my dlive name when i test, there is no sound from the file. the GIF pops up but no sound unless its the default quack i'll use "copy link address" put it in the correct box, save, add browser source in OBS and still no sound

    3. I have checked your account, and you have not entered the correct sound links. Please follow Step 5 in this guide.

      The sound you entered was:

      If you follow Step 5 of the guide, you will see the actual correct address is:

    4. So it worked for that one, but following step 5 doesnt copy all the link? because im having trouble with all the sound clips i want, If i simply "copy link address" and paste it into the space i want it, nothing happens. So im supposed to re-wright HTML5?

    5. If you follow the guide then everything will work. You are copying the page URL of MyInstants - which is incorrect.

      1) Find the sound you like on MyInstants
      2) Right Click on the button that says "DOWNLOAD MP3"
      3) Select "Copy Link Address"
      4) In TidyLabs, Right Click the sound box and select paste
