How to Add Music to Wix Website

Are you looking to add music to your website? Adding music to a Wix site can make it more engaging and user-friendly.

From background audio files to entire music players, Wix has everything you need to bring your website or blog up a notch.

Music has the power to make an impact on your website visitors, which is why it’s important to know how to add music in the right way on a Wix site.

Whether you want background audio or wish to embed a full player, this blog post will cover all the ways that you can incorporate music into your website.

Add Music to Your Wix Site: Background & Overview

Wix is one of the leading website platforms currently available. It offers users of all levels an easy way to create and manage their own beautiful websites with ease.

With its drag-and-drop interface, no coding knowledge is required and there are plenty of innovative features that can be used to improve your online presence.

These include adding music files and players; so if you’re wanting some background tunes or some extra flair for your homepage, read on!

Step 1: Choose Music for Your Wix Website

When adding audio files or music players, the first step is always choosing the right audio for your site. You’ll want something that fits with the overall atmosphere and design of your page as well as being appropriate for its content.

If it doesn’t quite fit, visitors may have trouble engaging with it and may just be put off from visiting again in the future.

Consider the purpose of each page on your site before making any decisions – this will save time in selecting the perfect song or audio clip later down the line.

Step 2: Add Audio to a Page

Once you have chosen the right soundtrack for your site, adding it is simple with Wix! Just go onto each individual page that you want sound on and select “Add > Sound & Video” from the dropdown menu at the top left corner of the editor window – this opens up access to all available sound options within Wix.

You can then upload an audio file from your computer directly into each page, or choose from hundreds of sounds supplied by Wix as part of their library – just hover over any sound file until a “+” icon appears, click this icon, click “Add File” in popup window then voila! That particular sound clip should now be added to the selected page on your website!

Step 3: Embed Music From External Sources

If you don’t have any audio files stored locally on your computer but still would like to have background music playing throughout your entire website – this can easily be accomplished by embedding a song from one of many external sources (such as SoundCloud or YouTube).

This can be done by copying and pasting the link into an ‘Embed’ element – which is available in SiteEdit mode (the HTML development environment for Wix sites).

Step 4: Adjust Audio Settings

Finally, once the Song is uploaded into either Editor Mode or SiteEdit Mode – it’s typically recommended that some basic adjustments should be made in order for users visiting from mobile devices not to encounter any unexpected behavior when attempting to playback audio from their device’s speaker systems.

These adjustments include making sure that when autoplay is enabled – that only one instance of audio begins at a time (preventing multiple sounds playing simultaneously), adjusting media playback rate depending on connection speed & bandwidth capacity.

All this can simply be done within ‘Settings’ after locating the Sound Element inside either Editor Mode or Site Edit mode within one’s Wix site dashboard.

Step 5: Embed A Bandcamp Player

An alternative option instead of uploading songs directly onto one’s sites is adding a Bandcamp player. This player allows musicians to self-publish their work while also allowing people visiting one’s websites to listen or purchase direct links within said Bandcamp players if they so desire to!

The process simply involves copying & pasting widgets supplied by Bandcamp into either Editor Mode or Site Edit Mode; then setting parameters according to ‘Display options’ such as deciding what albums/songs should appear once players are embedded + other aesthetic layout choices.


Adding music onto one’s site has become easier thanks to software such as those provided by WIX! From choosing appropriate music. Embedding from external sources such as SoundCloud & YouTube. Adjusting sound settings through customizing design options responsible for inserting Bandcamp players.

There really aren’t any limits when it comes to completing sound-based goals online. Hopefully, this blog has provided helpful tips for seeing this process through with minimal hiccups whatsoever!
