How do I get Twitch alert sounds?

For the quickest, easiest, AND safest way to set up custom alerts for your stream, start by selecting an existing scene and click the Edit Scene button at the bottom of the screen. When in the edit window, add a new layer by clicking on the + icon next to Layers, and select Twitch Alerts under Additional Layers.

Then, with the newly created Twitch Alerts layer selected, navigate to the right side of the app to make quick edits to the layer as a whole, such as changing the size, position, and overall alert length.

Additionally, under Alert Types, it is possible to further customize each individual alert with different icons, colors, and sounds by clicking on the desired alert type and making the necessary adjustments in the pop-up window.

How to do sound alerts on Twitch mobile?

IRL Chat is an Android app that runs in the background when you're doing mobile streaming on Twitch. I show you how to use it to get twitch alerts on mobile even when your streaming app doesn't support it, how to get TTS over your headphones while live vlogging, and how to keep up with text chat in case you need to time out or ban anyone while on mobile. I made this tutorial video for a couple of friends who do IRL streams in Japan and wanted to know how to get sound alerts and text-to-speech on Twitch. They both know what they're doing on stream so I kind of assumed people watching would know the basics of what browser source URLs are and how to use them. If you don't know, a browser source is just a link that let's you integrate third party content into your stream, and it's used extensively in desktop streaming on OBS or Streamlabs Desktop, and it allows a ton of customization, including things like alerts and chat boxes. None of the mobile IRL streaming apps that I've tried offer full support for TTS and the 3rd party browser sources required for sound alerts, so we're going to have to use an app called IRL Chat to play TTS and twitch alerts over the phone speaker as a workaround for mobile streaming apps that don't fully support them. On mobile, the only app that I know that will let you add a wide range of browser sources is PRISM Live Studio. Before you try anything else, I suggest you play around with PRISM first as you might be able to get sound alerts working in there without any messing around. For me, I currently don't use PRISM as I'm waiting for an update that fixes some bugs on Android 12. Streamlabs Mobile is supposed to have 3rd party browser support, but they've blocked/banned all StreamElements overlays from their platform StreamElements for Android is actually a really light IRL streaming app that runs great and has tight integration with StreamElements overlays, but it doesn't support third party browser sources at all. This is where IRL Chat comes in. Use IRL Chat to connect to your Twitch chat. If you go into settings, you can make IRL chat keep running in the background. This is super useful if you miss something in chat and want to scroll back up. It's also great if you need to mod someone by giving them a timeout or banning them. In IRL Chat settings, you can also add browser sources. while viewers won't be able to see these sources on stream, they can hear them if they play over the phone speaker. This way, even if your twitch streaming app in the foreground can't play your sound alerts, viewers can still hear them. As it's coming over the speaker, the quality might not be as good as if it's playing natively in your streaming app, so if you can add browser sources to your streaming app, do it there. If the sound on your phone speaker isn't great, you could try pairing your phone to a Bluetooth speaker. You'll be annoyingly noisy if you're playing alerts on the street 🤣 but the results are really good. There's an extra setting in the app if you're having trouble keeping the speaker connected. In Settings you can also enable Text-To-Speech. TTS will read out every message in chat. For me, I carry two devices when live streaming, both running irl chat for alerts. On my streaming phone, I have TTS turned off, but on my second device I have TTS turned on and running through my headphones. That way I can hear chat without looking at my screen all the time.

Where can I get free Twitch alert sounds?

Own3D.tv offers a vast range of add-ons that you can use to customize your Twitch live-streaming channel. Most of these templates, graphics, sounds, and other add-ons are also usable on your Mixer or YouTube Gaming live-streaming channel, too.

Included in Own3D.tv’s offering is a range of Stream Alert Sounds and Twitch Notification Sound Sets. Own3D.tv currently offers 24 of these sound files. According to their website, “most Twitch Alert Sounds are just simple sound sets with no real meaning. That's not enough for us! On own3d.tv, you'll find Alert Sounds especially composed for Streamers on Twitch, YouTube, or Facebook. This way, you can highlight notifications in your stream even better and motivate your viewers to interact even more with you. Especially for followers, donations, hosts, raids, and more.”

Sounds vary from those relating to a musical genre, e.g., Alert Sound Package “Rock” and Alert Sound Package "Dubstep," to those connected to specific games, e.g., Alert Sound Package "Fortnite."

Although sound doesn’t get the large-scale treatment at Nerd or Die that graphics do, they do still offer three sets of sound effects. You can select from Pretty Sprites Sound Effects, Virtua Sound Effects, and Voice UI Sound Effects.

The Pretty Sprites sound effect pack contains sounds inspired by pixel art and the old school gaming era. This download includes pre-composed sounds that you can hear in the demo video, as well as the individual sound effects used to make them. Use these sounds with your Twitch alerts and YouTube videos. Alert Sounds for Twitch, YouTube, and Mixer. Suitable for uploading to services such as Streamlabs, Bebo, and Stream Elements. The pack includes 20 unique sound designs and 35 individual sound effects.

As its name indicates, the Voice UI Sound Effects pack is somewhat different. It contains a mix of male and female voice options, with sounds for Stream Alerts and Stream Deck Audio Triggers. It comes with three voice styles: General, Relay and Spark, and three message styles: informative, personality, and grateful. There are 12 unique messages per style, adding up to more than 200 voice files. Nerd or Die recommends that you match this audio alert pack with their Uplink Stream Package.

Is Freesound copyright free?

Freesound aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, ... released under Creative Commons licenses that allow their reuse. Freesound provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to:

  • browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a "sounds-like" type of browsing and more
  • upload and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license
  • interact with fellow sound-artists!

Well, it depends on what you want to do and which files you want to use. First of all, freesound lets the user select one of three licenses for their sounds. And, we used to have a 4th license, which complicates matters. Depending on the license there are things you can and can't do with the files. Let's start with the licenses. Creative commons has a really nice page explaining them:

  • zero (cc0): http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/
  • attribution (by): http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/
  • attribution noncommercial (by-nc): http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/

Can you get sued for playing copyrighted music on Twitch?

Creators, we hear you. Your frustration and confusion with recent music-related copyright issues is completely justified. Things can–and should–be better for creators than they have been recently, and this post outlines our next steps to get there. Moving forward, we’ll be more transparent with what’s happening and what tools and resources we’re building to help.

Copyright law and the DMCA are not small or simple topics, so this won’t be a brief post. We’ll do our best to keep the legalese to a minimum, though there’s bound to be technical terms here and there.

Can I play Spotify on Twitch?

Yes, you can play Spotify music on Twitch as long as the songs are copyright-free. These include songs owned by you, songs you’ve licensed to, and those provided through “Soundtrack by Twitch.”

You may wonder what would happen if you do play copyrighted music. Well, Twitch takes music copyrights very seriously. If you violate their policies, your recorded videos will be automatically muted or removed, and after three violations, your account will be banned. So, it’s better to be safe than sorry. But where can you find music that’s copyright-free? You might have a Spotify subscription, but this doesn’t mean you’re allowed to directly connect to Spotify and use their content on your own while streaming.

How do I make notifications with sound?

To set a custom notification sound, go to Settings and tap on 'Sound & Haptics.' Under 'Sounds and Vibration Patterns,' select the type of notification that needs to be changed. From the menu, choose the sound that needs to be set as the notification sound. Once an option is chosen, users will see a blue check mark next to it. This method enables users to customize ringtones for incoming calls, as well as notification sounds for texts, voicemails, emails, calendar alerts, reminders, and more. Users can also tap on 'Tone Store' to buy a ringtone and use that instead of the available options.

To disable notification sounds for third-party apps, open Settings, tap on 'Notifications' and then select the target app. If sound notifications are available for the app, it will have a toggle switch for 'Sounds' that just requires toggling on or off for the desired result. Meanwhile, Apple's own apps, such as FaceTime, Mail, and Messages allow users to set their own custom notification sounds. To do this, choose the target app under 'Notifications' in Settings. From here, tap on 'Sounds' under 'Alerts' and then select the notification sound from the available options.

iPhone users can also change text message tones and ringtones for specific contacts. To do this, open the Contacts app and select a contact from the list. Tap on 'Edit' in the top right corner, and then tap 'Ringtone' or 'Text Tone' to change the tone from the available options.

How do you use sound alerts?
