This is the dev documentation for an unreleased version of MPF!

This is the documentation for MPF 0.56, which is the “dev” (next) release of MPF that is a work-in-progress. Unless you’re specifically looking for this version, you probably want to use the version of documentation called “latest” which is for the latest released version of MPF. That documentation is at docs.missionpinball.org/en/latest.

Sound player

The sound player is a config player that’s used to control sounds. (This player is part of the MPF media controller and only available if you’re using MPF-MC for your media controller.)

See Sounds, Music & Audio and How to setup sound for your machine for details.

Usage in config files

In config files, the sound player is used via the sound_player: section. Event names that will trigger sound actions are nested sub-headings and sound names are either listed as nested sub-headings below that.

Usage in shows

In shows, the sound player is used via the sounds: section of a step.

Optional settings

Additional information may be found in the sound_player configuration reference documentation.
