1. Add A Custom CSS Class To The Divi Audio Module

The first step is to add a custom CSS class to the specific Divi Audio module where you want the download button to appear. This class will be the link between the module and the jQuery and CSS code, which will be added in the next steps.

Open the Audio module settings and go to the Advanced tab to the CSS IDs & Classes toggle. Place the class “pa-audio-download” in the CSS Class input field.

2. Add The jQuery Snippet

Since there is no built-in function for this, we need to create some code that adds a new element to the module, the download button icon. We also need to get the audio file which is added by the user in the module and attach it dynamically to this new download button icon. We are doing these things with the jQuery snippet below.

If you are using our free Divi child theme, place this snippet into the scripts.js file and remove the <script> tags at the beginning and end. Otherwise, place this in your Divi>Theme Options>Integrations tab in the "Add code to the < head > of your blog" code area.

var x = setInterval(function(){
var link = jQuery(this).find(".mejs-mediaelement audio").attr("src");
jQuery(this).find(".et_audio_container").append('<a href= "'+link+'" class= "pa-audio-download-button"></a>');
jQuery(this).find(".pa-audio-download-button").attr("download", "");
if(jQuery(this).find(".pa-audio-download-button").attr("href") != "undefined"){

3. Add the CSS Snippet

After placing the jQuery Snippet, you will not see the download icon yet until you place the CSS. The CSS snippet will position the download icon to the right side of the player. It also defines the download icon, which you are free to change if you prefer a different icon. 

If you are using our free Divi child theme, place this snippet into the style.css file. Otherwise, place this in your Divi>Theme Options>Custom CSS code box. If you need help, check out our complete guide on Where To Add Custom Code In Divi.

/*style the audio download button*/

.pa-audio-download .et_audio_container {
	position: relative;

.pa-audio-download-button {
	position: absolute;
	right: 15px;
	bottom: 45px;
	display: flex;
	justify-content: center;
	align-items: center;

.pa-audio-download-button:before {
	content: "\e092";
	font-family: ETMODULES;
	color: #fff;
	font-size: 18px;
	position: relative;
	left: -50px;
	font-weight: bold;

4. Make Any Final Design Adjustments

Adjust Padding Right

Since we are adding the icon to the right side of the player, it visually makes all the player elements off centered. To solve this, simply add some padding to the right side. I used 110px to make it look correct with the -50px in the snippet above.

Optional Download Icon Styling

If you would like to add an optional background design to the download icon, you can also paste this snippet of CSS code along with the other snippet.

/*add background to download icon*/
.pa-audio-download-button:before {
    width: 34px;
    height: 34px;
    border-radius: 50%;
    background-color: #000000;

Fix Audio Time Position

I noticed (at least on my site) that the time is showing down too far. This seems to be a bug in Divi, but you can solve it with this snippet of CSS.

/*fix for audio time position*/
.et_audio_container .mejs-container .mejs-controls .mejs-time span {
    line-height: 18px!important;
    top: -4px;
    position: relative;

Final Result

Here is how your Divi Audio module should look once you complete this tutorial!
