Add Your Audio¶
Once you’ve created music or ambient sounds for your domain, you need to add the sound and its assets to the Marketplace. To sell audio on the marketplace, you will need the following assets:
- WAV or MP3 file
- Script file (sound emitter script)
- FBX file (for the entity to which you will attach the sound emitter script)
- JSON file

- In the ‘Properties’ tab, scroll down to ‘Script’ and your script’s path or URL.
- Test your script file to see if your audio plays in High Fidelity.
Add Your Assets¶
If your model could be re-imported without any issues, it is now ready to be uploaded to High Fidelity.

- Click your uploaded FBX file and copy the new Marketplace URL for the FBX file.
Upload Your Item’s JSON File¶
- In High Fidelity, verify that your model looks correct. Open the Create Tools app, then click ‘Import Entities (.JSON)’ and navigate to your model’s JSON file.
- Go to https://highfidelity.com/marketplace. If you’re not logged in, you will be prompted to do so.
