Sounds Formats supported on Gmod


Sometimes some sounds do not work and you do not understand why, I am often asked why, and the error is always the same, the format is not the right one or the sampling rate.
Fortunately this appears in the client console in red, example :
Unsupported 32-bit wave file alarmeagendaalarme.wav*** Invalid sample rate (48000) for sound 'alarme/agenda/alarme.wav'.

Actually there it is a recurring problem, the user uses a sound which at a rate of 48000.

Permitted sampling rates

Sample rate
  1. 11025 Hz
  2. 22050 Hz
  3. 44100 Hz

Formats Allowed


  1. .mp3
  2. .wav
  3. .ogg

Where to install the sounds on Garry's Mod ( Gmod ) :


The sounds must be placed in the sound/ folder. This can also be placed in an addon so: addon/youraddonname/sound/
