Can I add sound effects to an Inline campaign?

No, it is not possible to add sound effects to Inline campaigns since they appear immediately on page load.

Does the MonsterSound feature negatively affect my site’s performance, will it slow down my site?

No, OptinMonster uses modern browser APIs to make the sounds rather than loading sound files. This cuts loading time significantly and makes the campaign lightweight.

Do the sound effects work with Internet Explorer?

No, because OptinMonster uses modern browser APIs to make the sounds rather than loading sound files, the sound effects will not work with Internet Explorer.


I’ve configured MonsterSound but they aren’t working, why?

We are not able to guarantee MonsterSound will work in all browsers for all visitors.

There are several factors that will influence when MonsterSound will work for an individual visitor on your site, including:

  • The browser they are using; and
  • Their individual browser settings; and
  • The visitor’s interaction with your site.
