Music Maker Mod adds music sheets, instruments and other devices to the game for creating and playing music. Check the video below to see how it works.



Music Maker Mod is designed to work efficiently and properly in multiplayer. You can play music with friends without worrying about server lag ruining the rhythm like with note block creations.

Bring your favourite music to Minecraft or create your own masterpiece. Set free your heart and become the musician you aspire to be!

  •  Music sheets that let you create music
  •  Sounds follow the chromatic scale with 12 notes per octave and 4 octaves for a total of 48 notes
  •  11 different tempo settings from 60 BPM to 1200 BPM
  •  Writing music with the mouse or the keyboard, whichever you find comfortable
  •  Convenient keyboard functionality such as space, delete, backspace
  •  Selecting, copying and pasting notes. CTRL + A, CTRL + C, CTRL + V shortcuts work.
  •  Copying between different sheets and even outside Minecraft. You can copy them to a text file to back up or paste in another world/server.
  •  Putting up to 5 sheets in the hotbar to see and preview multiple layers of music at the same time when editing. Neighboring sheets can easily be disabled with a button that appears.
  •  Previewing sheets with an instrument in the off hand. You can also lock the instrument per sheet to only preview with that instrument even when your off hand item changes. This can be used to mark which instrument a sheet is supposed to be played with and is also useful with neighboring sheets previews.
  •  13 craftable instruments and 1 instrument that can be found in certain treasures.
  •  Using an instrument by itself plays a random note.
  •  Using an instrument while holding a sheet with your offhand plays the sheet to the world.
  •  Music boxes take in a sheet and an instrument. They start (or stop if playing already) playing when they take in a redstone signal that goes from off to on.
  •  Music boxes also send a one second redstone pulse to their right face when they finish playing. This can be used to chain songs or activate piece of a contraption.
  •  Metronomes supply a steady ticking when the redstone signal is on. The ticking rate can be set with a right click or using a music sheet on the metronome.
  •  After four tickings of a metronome, all nearby players that hold a music sheet with the correct tempo and an instrument will start playing synchronously. Use this to play songs together with your band.
  •  Keyboard usage is as shown:

New in 1.17.1-1.0

Added music exporting to and importing from files

  • Use the command "/musicexport <filename>" to export the music sheet in your main hand to a file you can find in "<your Minecraft directory>/music_sheets/<filename>.sheet"
  • Place a sheet file in the folder "<your Minecraft directory>/music_sheets/", and use the command "/musicimport <filename>" to import that music into your hand.
  • If you are in survival mode, you will need to hold an empty music sheet on your main hand when importing
  • In this way, you can easily transfer music between worlds and share them with others!
