If you want to save your own sounds on the SD card, some things can go wrong resulting in a failure of playing your own sounds. That's a pity! Therefore we elaborately explain how you can save mp3 files on the SD card in this article.

What are the requirements for mp3 files?

  • A bitrate of 192 kbps

  • A file name with a maximum of 70 characters, for example, MeditationMusic1

  • The file name may not contain special characters, so do NOT use Meditation%Music%1

Converting mp3 files to a bitrate of 192 kbps

Before you save mp3 files on the SD card of Somnox 1, you need to convert files to another bitrate. Ony mp3 files with a bitrate of 192 kbps can be played on Somnox 1.

How does this work?

To change the bitrate of mp3 files, you need an mp3 converter. Via Google, you can easily find an mp3 converter.

  1. Search via Google "mp3 bitrate converter". The first search result is in most cases a good choice. Select this one.

  2. Copy or select your mp3 files to the mp3 converter.

  3. Select a bitrate of 192 kbps (or 192k).

  4. Select Convert / Enter / Next (a button that starts the bit rate conversion).

  5. Wait a few seconds. If you have selected many mp3 files it can take a while longer.

  6. Your converted mp3 files are now available to download. Keep in mind that the file names of the converted files can be different than your original mp3 files.

  7. After you download the converted mp3 files, you can find them in the 'Downloads' folder on your computer.

  8. Make sure that your file names contain a maximum of 70 characters and do not contain special characters.
