Leatrix Sounds


General Information

Is this a replacement for the media player in Leatrix Plus?
  • No. The media player in Leatrix Plus features specific, categorised music (in sound kit form) and is ideal for listening to your favorite music tracks (as well as discovering new ones) while playing the game. Movies are also included. By contrast, Leatrix Sounds lets you play any sound in the game (both sound kits and sound files are supported) and it's powerful search capability makes it relatively easy to find the sounds that you are looking for without needing to trawl websites.
Sound kit dialog sounds are silent.
  • Sound kits that play through the dialog channel (such as the voice-over sound kits) will only be audible if sound effects are enabled and dialog volume is at an audible level.
When I click a sound kit multiple times, different sounds play.
  • A sound kit is a container for one or more sound files. Example, all the emote silly sound files for gnome female (which you can see in the sound file browser) are grouped together in a single sound kit. Clicking a sound kit in Leatrix Sounds will play any of the sound files inside it.
Is every single game sound really included?
  • Yes. The sound lists were extracted from the game files and imported directly into the addon with only formatting changes made to the code.
How many sounds are in the addon?
  • As of Leatrix Sounds 8.1.03, there are 3534 music files, 141463 sound effect files and 116946 sound kits in the addon.
Will the sounds be updated?
  • Yes. Leatrix Sounds will be updated with each major patch (such as 8.1, 8.2, etc).
How do I silence a game sound using Leatrix Sounds?
  • The music and sound effects listings show the filename and path of every sound file in the game. So let's say you want to silence the sound that plays when you open the game menu (with the escape key). That sound is called 'Sound\Interface\uEscapeScreenOpen.ogg' and can be found in the Effects listing. All you have to do is put an empty sound file called 'uEscapeScreenOpen.ogg' in the 'Wow\_retail_\Sound\Interface\' folder then restart your game client. Don't forget that just like the game, Leatrix Sounds won't be able to play sounds that you have silenced in this way.
Is any part of Leatrix Sounds against the terms of use for World of Warcraft?
  • Of course not. Addons are compiled by the game and they run in a restricted environment so they can only do what Blizzard has expressly permitted them to do.


There are too many updates.
  • Then don't install alpha releases as they really aren't necessary. If you are using Twitch app, make sure it's set to 'Release' and not 'Alpha'. To do that, open Twitch App, click the Mods tab at the top, click World of Warcraft, under 'My Addons' right-click 'Leatrix Sounds' and set 'Release Type' to 'Release'.
Can I update Leatrix Sounds without restarting the game client?
  • Yes. Just update the addon and reload your UI. On the rare occasion that a game client restart is required, the addon will not run and a message will be shown in chat advising you to restart your game client.

Bugs and Feature Requests

How can I submit a bug report?
  • Before submitting a bug report, disable all other addons to see if the bug persists with only Leatrix Sounds enabled. If it does persist, submit a ticket. Please include as much information as possible. It is very useful to include a list of your other addons.
Why has a particular bug not been fixed?
  • Because it hasn't been reported. Submit a ticket to report it. Bugs are fixed within a few hours of being reported (often less). If you see a bug in the addon, don't assume that someone else has reported it. If they had, it would have been fixed already.
Can I suggest a new feature?
  • Yes, just submit a ticket with the details. Note that suggestions will typically not receive a reply.
