Can I add custom tones, notification sounds, or tunes to BM2X modules?

Yes, it is possible to add your own tones. However, there are requirements for the WAV file and a memory limitation associated.

Limitations are:

  1. The tone length limitation is three seconds; for Power On Tone, the limitation is 4.5s.
  2. Sampling rate should be 8 k.
  3. Bit rate should be 16-bit.
  4. The type is monotype.
  5. The size of translated raw data can't be over 9 KB.

The UI Tool for the BM2x products can be used to store the custom tone in the BM2x device. There is an associated user guide for this tool, which covers the information described in this FAQ.
