- All unused songs from the official soundtrack have been added.
- Calm4 from Java Edition Alpha v1.1.1 has been added.

- End and Boss play interchangeably.
- Dog plays after the Cat music disc.
- Jukebox music is audible from 250 blocks away instead of the default 64.
- The “11” music disc has been replaced with Minecraft Volume Alpha’s “Eleven”, an actual song.
- The “ward” music disc has been replaced with Minecraft Volume Beta’s “Ward”, a remixed version of the original disc.
- An in-game music player has been added to the settings screen.
- Up to 100 custom songs can be added. Requires the Custom Music Container companion pack.
- Any individual song can be played with the command “/playsound song.[song_name/filename] @s”.
- Music disc music will still play from the jukebox regardless of setting chosen below.
There are multiple different pack options. Each one includes different features and music tracks.
- Default – This is the normal setting for the pack with all the features listed above.
- Native Music – This limits the music to songs that are in any base version of the game.
- Festive Music – This limits the music to festive songs.
- No Water Music – This is the exact same as Native Music, but without Axolotl, Dragon Fish, or Shuniji.
- Old Music – This uses the music from before the 2013 Music Update. It doesn’t use Creative, Water, Nether, End, Credits, or Menu music.
- Old Music+ – This is almost the same as Old Music, the difference being that it still uses Nether, End, and Credits music.
- Custom Music – This limits the music to custom songs. If no custom songs have been added, it will be silent. Requires the Custom Music Container companion pack.
- Total Mix – This lets any music, including Credits, End, Boss, Nether, Water, Menu, Survival, Creative, or Music Discs play at any time.
- No Automatic Music – This stops music from playing automatically. It’s meant for players who want to manually play songs with the music player or commands.
You can switch the pack mode by going to Global Resources in Settings and selecting the gear.
Music+ adds an in-game music player to the settings screen. This menu allows you to play any song in Minecraft with the press of a button. It works in any gamemode on any world (even without cheats enabled) as long as you can access the settings screen.
Selecting multiple songs from the music player will cause them to play at the same time. If you select an album, the game will play one random song from that album.
The music player works best with the No Automatic Music pack option. Using other pack options with the music player could cause multiple songs to play at once.
Music+ also has support for custom music added by the player with the Custom Music Container pack. Using the Custom Music pack option will replace the default game music with custom songs. Custom songs can also be played from the music player. To learn how to add custom songs to Music+, watch the tutorial below.
