The buzzer ID sounds are an important feature of SpeedQuizzing and whilst the included sounds serve a purpose, many people will at some point want to add to, or replace these with something more exciting.
Licensed ready-made SpeedQuizzing buzzer ID sounds
We have partnered with muscfactory.com to create 150 bespoke SpeedQuizzing buzzer ID sounds using short blasts of PPL licensed popular music. All of which have been professionally selected, edited and mastered to work with SpeedQuizzing.
There are three Music Factory SpeedQuizzing compilations to choose from, each consisting of 50 buzzer ID sounds. Each clip averages around 6 seconds of music and each compilation contains a mixture of various hit songs to suit all ages and musical tastes.
Whether you need to purchase one compilation or multiple’, depends on the amount of connected devices you expect to have taking part at your events and how much choice you want to give your players.
Unfortunately these are only available for use in the UK (£15 per compilation).
Creating your own Buzzer ID sounds
Any short mp3 audio clip with the file extension .mp3 will work as a buzzer ID, but it is important that you are careful not to breach any copyright laws when playing unlicensed audio in public.
Instructions on how to install buzzer ID sounds in SpeedQuizzing
It’s as simple as pasting the files into the buzzers folder on your computer and restarting the SpeedQuizzing software.
- The buzzers folder is located in the sounds folder which is in a folder named Other which can be found in the main Speedquizzing Documents folder.
