Sound board in HTML5 with source code

Sound board in HTML5 with source code


Sound board project is an audio-based web project. It is coded in HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. This project deals with playing sound on button click.

In this tutorial, we will be creating a static web page with sound. First, we need to create a folder sound board with html, css, sound, and js files. We are using a container which includes all the audio parts. We will create a couple of simple button that plays sound. We will use audio html tag to insert sound. Buttons are styled with CSS.

The functionality of clicking button is added via Javascript code. All the styling is done using CSS. Javascript makes it functional, when you press button the sound starts to play and when you press another the previous sound stops and another sound plays. See the screenshot below.

    <audio id = "Firework" src="sounds/firework.mp3"></audio>

    <div id="buttons"></div>

Sound board CSS


We will be using CSS for styling the displayed buttons and text on sound board project.

@import url('');

* {
    box-sizing: border-box;

body {
    background-color: rgb(150, 200, 200); 
    font-family: 'Muli', sans-serif;
    display: flex;
    flex-wrap: wrap;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: center;
    text-align: center;
    height: 100vh; 
    overflow: hidden;
    margin: 0;

.btn {
    background-color: rgb(17, 150, 143);
    border-radius: 5px;
    border: none;
    color: #fff;
    margin: 1rem;
    padding: 1.5rem 3rem;
    font-size: 1.2rem;
    font-family: inherit;
    cursor: pointer;

.btn:hover {
    opacity: 0.9;

.btn:focus {
    outline: none;


The Javascript code is added for making button clickable. A even listener is added on each button that plays sound on click. This project is responsive from small to large device. Check the js code below.


 const sounds = ['Beep', 'Bird', 'Jungle', 'Car', 'Winning', 'Firework']
 sounds.forEach(sound => {
     const btn = document.createElement('button')

     btn.innerText = sound

     btn.addEventListener('click', () => {


 function stopSong() {
     sounds.forEach(sound => {
         const song = document.getElementById(sound)

         song.currentTime = 0;
