Best 13 Free & Paid Discord Soundboards: Windows & Mac

Written By Shubrato Dev Baishnab

All the funny voices your favorite pro gamers make during their gameplay are possible through the Discord Soundboards. But whether you want to sound like them, or even Darth Vader, there are tons of third-party options to choose

I’ve tested both free and paid, at least, 25 soundboard apps for Discord, and used them on my different OS-es. After the month-long testing, I’ve narrowed down the list to the top 13. Let’s go through them and see which one suits you.

Best Discord Soundboard App for Windows & Mac

The Discord Soundboard app is available for both Windows & macOS devices. Besides the paid versions, there are many free Soundboard apps. In the free segment apps like Resanance, Clownfish Voice Changer, Voicemod, JN Soundboard, etc, are the best.

And from the paid ones, I found Soundpad, AV Voice Changer, and Morphvox Pro are great Soundboard apps. You’ll get many features with customizable sound effects in those paid apps.

In this article, I have divided the best Discord soundboard apps into two categories — Free & Paid. So, it’ll be easier for you to choose the best one whether you’re up for the free or the paid one. Let’s go through the 8 free and 5 paid Discord Soundboard apps and choose your preferred ones.

1. Resanance (Windows)

If you want to play some dunk tunes or irritate your friend with the loudest of sounds just for fun, the Resanance app is all you need. It’s one of the most popular soundboard apps among Discord users.

With it, you can play your favorite hot music tapes on the Discord voice channels. It’s only available for Windows users. So, Windows 10 or 11 users can use it without any hassle. And more than 500,000 users worldwide are now using this app. Let’s take a look at its features.

  • Let you use a button deck instead of hotkeys.

What I liked most & What I didn’t: While testing I found this app pretty feature packed. The major feature of this app is it supports volume control over the separate mic and multiple devices. It can also play sounds on multiple devices at a time. But it’s only available for Windows OS, and that’s a downside.

2. Clownfish Voice Changer (Windows/Mac/iOS/Android)

This is another free soundboard app for Discord. But the major part here is it can change your voice and turn it into something funny. Plus, the Clownfish Voice Changer app works from the system level, so apps that support microphone input support this app.clownfish-voice-changer

With this app, you can transform your vocals by applying preset voices like alien, male or female pitch, atari, helium pitch, robot, baby pitch, and so on.


  • Users can apply different types of voices.

What I liked most & What I didn’t: The outcome voice-changing effects are too funny that will make you laugh for sure. Besides it can turn texts into speech and supports tons of apps. But these apps are not so good when you’re talking about privacy.

3. JN Soundboard (Windows)

If you’re a fan of free open-source software, you can go for the JN Soundboard app. It’s a free app but loaded with tons of features. You can set up multiple hotkeys and even modify those keys. This app allows users to disable the hotkeys when working on other programs.

Moreover, this software can play audio through any sound device, and it supports microphone loopback. However, you can assign multiple sounds on a single hotkey, and once you press that key, it will play all the added songs randomly.

  • Supports adding multiple sounds on a single hotkey and can play those songs randomly.

What I liked most & What I didn’t: The coolest thing about this app is you can restrict hotkeys while working on other ways and can play multiple sounds randomly by pressing a single hotkey. However, to use the text-to-speech feature you must use the virtual audio cable.

4. Voicemod (Windows/Mac)

This Voicemod soundboard app for Discord is capable of spicing up the voice chat with its unique sounds and effects. If you’re playing any RPG, this app can merge fun into your stream. Plus, every month, you’ll get new sounds.voicemod-discord

You can create your own sounds with effects and upload those in .mp3 or .wav format. So, you can show your creative talent with this app. Not only on Discord, but you can also use this app with other VoIP apps & games like Teamspeak Skype, CS: GO, Steam, PUBG, Zoom, Stream Deck, etc.

Price: Free

Supported File Format: .mp3, .wav

Platform: Available for Windows OS and Mac (Beta)

What I liked most & What I didn’t: If you ask me to rate this app out of 5, I’ll definitely give it 4. Because Voicemod adds new sounds every month and as a free app it’s beyond my expectations. Plus, you can change your voice while playing sounds. But, its overwhelming ads will irritate you every now and then.

5. EXP Soundboard (Windows)

If you want a robust and easy-to-use interface soundboard app EXP soundboard app is for you. You’ll get almost all the features in this simple app. Plus, you can custom hotkeys in it and play sounds just by the push of a button.

What I liked most & What I didn’t: The plus side of this app is it comes with a simple UI so that beginners can understand it quickly. It has a built-in media file converter tool that can convert any file to its playable format. The downside is you must install a VB-cable driver for it and it supports only a few file types.

6. Jingle Palette (Windows)

This app was mainly designed as an instant jingle player for radio broadcast studios. It can play several audio file formats, such as MP3, MP2, MPA, MP1, OGG, and WAV.

The good news is you can get this soundboard app for free, and it’s a powerful soundboard app for Discord. With this, you can load various sounds and sound effects on the screen. Each sound palette supports up to 30 files.

Platform: Available only for Windows

What I liked most & What I didn’t: It supports several audio file formats and has an in-app display where you can see current time, date, and week. This app supports various resolutions also. Because it’s mainly a jingle player for radio broadcasting some might find its UI pretty hard to understand.

7. Mixere (Windows)

This Mixere app has been mainly intended for live performances in the past years. But for its perfect features, this app makes its way to this best Discord soundboard list.

Mixere app supports unlimited tracks, and it allows you to play multiple tracks at a time. But the downside is it’s not appropriate for those who are looking for a decent soundboard app with a simple UI.

The interface is complex and has no support for assigning hotkeys. So, I’ll only recommend this app to those who use Discord to perform live or DJ on their Discord servers.


  • Spreadsheet-like user interface.
  • Suitable for a live performance on Discord server and live sound collage.
  • Don’t support assigning keyboard keys as hotkeys.
  • Provides dynamic looping or triggering audio, pan, pitch slider, crossfading, and automated volume.
  • Required DirectX 8.1 drivers.

Price: Free

Supported File Format: Most audio file formats

Platform: Windows OS

What I liked most & What I didn’t: Mixere is mainly for those who are looking for a DJ interface-like soundboard to make some jam on the server. It supports most audio file formats and has tons of audio mixing presets. But the downfall is it doesn’t support any hotkeys.

8. Discord Official Soundboard (Windows/Mac/Linux)

Discord has recently added its official soundboard. But it has limited soundboard features than other apps on this list. That’s why this official sound app is at the bottom of this list.

You’ll get only eight sounds like Quack, Airhorn, clap, and so on. If you want to use this, you can swap your own sound with the default one. But the audio must be under 5 seconds.discord-official-soundboard

Though in my test, I was able to upload sound not more than 0.8 seconds. Moreover, you can add additional sound to this, but you must buy a Discord Nitro subscription for that.


  • Allows the users to play short audio clips, and all participants can hear these clips in the same voice channel.
  • Supports limiting server members from using the soundboard.
  • Discord Nitro subscribers will get additional benefits on the Soundboard.
  • Allows Nitro subscribers to upload sounds on different servers.
  • Additional super reactions for Nitro subscribers.

Platform: Windows, Mac, and Linux OS.

Now let’s talk about the paid ones.

9. Soundpad (Windows)

This Soundpad app is under the soundboard apps paid category. If you can spend some cash to buy this app, you will not only get a soundboard app but also a sound recorder app. Plus, this app supports editing sound.

11. AV Voice Changer (Windows)

This is another one that resides in Discord’s voice changer soundboard apps category. But it’s not free, and the price is pretty high. If you consider the features, then this price point balances all. It’s a powerful app that allows users to modify their own voice as they want.

12. MorphVOX Pro (Windows/Mac)

It’s another paid app for Discord, and the price is higher than most other apps but not more than AV Voice Changer.

MorphVOX Pro has an enormous library of sound effects and free voices for use in Discord. Plus, it has a unique feature that allows the user to add a custom background voice or noise when chatting.

13. Podcast Soundboard (Windows/Mac/iOS/Android/Web)

If you want to get a sound deck experience from a soundboard app instead of pressing the hotkeys, the Podcast Soundboard app is the best one for you. Moreover, this software provides a cleaner interface to the users, and it’s a paid one.
