Play sound for only one player

I'm making a mod and I need to play a sound with a very large range, but I only want 1 player to hear it, is there any way to do that?

As far as I know, that is not how minecraft's sound engine works.  This might be impossible, even with custom code.

LOL, no. It is possible to create a sound for only one player. All you have to do is use a custom command block in the procedures window. Find execute command and type in the text field: 

/playsound <sound> <source> <targets> [x] [y] [z] [volume] [pitch]

When doing a sound, figure out the data tag of your sound you created or just a (Minecraft:) sound. Then, pick your source, which will usually be "master" since most people sometimes mute other sounds, and master will be on most of the time. Then, If executing a sound on a player, use your target as (@p). This will find the closest player and play that sound only to them. Then x y z can be ~ ~ ~ but sometimes, just those symbols can sometimes break the sound and not play anything, so add a 1 like this: ~1 ~1 ~1, and your volume and pitch is up to you. This is about the only way to execute something like this, so good luck! Hope you like it!
