  1. OGG MUSIC UPDATE: Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of the tracks on my Looping Music page and my Horror/Surreal page. They sound amazing…almost as good as uncompressed WAV files…give them a try if they work in your projects. Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks that you happen to like but aren’t on the site yet, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you. That said, I have a couple of band new free tracks ready: On my Funny 6 page: SEWER SHENANIGANS – (Looping) – Maybe for humorous monsters underground…or funny criminals up to who-knows-what down there. https://soundimage.org/funny-6/ On my Puzzle Music 4 page: CYBER LIGHT CHASE – (Looping) – Perhaps for a faster-paced puzzle game? Or maybe something else? https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/ Enjoy!
  2. More mad experimenting this week. I’ve been trying to create some new looks for pixel art-style images, specifically tiles that can be used in 2D games and things. On my ART – Brick page, you’ll find: A bunch of cool new brick tiles, 64 by 64 pixels each. Some have a 3D look to them. https://soundimage.org/art-brick/ On my ART – Ground page, you’ll find: A variety of new ground tiles that could work for rocky surfaces, grass, sand, etc. https://soundimage.org/art-ground/ MUSIC UPDATE: Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of the tracks on my Looping Music page. Eventually, they will be available for every track on my site. Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks you happen to like, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you. Enjoy and keep being creative!
  3. Well, WAV files proved too large to upload onto Gumroad in any reasonable amount of time (we’re talking 1900+ tracks) so I’m uploading Ogg files instead. I’ve started with my Fantasy page. They sound really great…give them a try! Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, feel free to contact me. That said, this week’s new free tracks are: On my Action 3 page: WILD WEST COAST RACING 8 – (Looping) – Here’s another one that features a blues-y chord progression (in the C and D sections) giving it a very subtle humorous feel. https://soundimage.org/action-3/ On my Puzzle Music 4 page: PUZZLE JOURNEYS – (Looping) – Maybe for some kind of futuristic puzzle game…or perhaps something else. https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/ And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page: STREET CORNER_P-29 – Traffic, people talking, distant brakes squeaking, construction, bicycle passes. STREET CORNER_P-29_2 – Less traffic. Pedestrians talking, cars beep, bicycle passes, distant horns, truck pulls up, air brakes from truck, subway heard underground coming into station, another subway passes underground, distant helicopter. STREET CORNER_P30 – Traffic passes, people pass on sidewalk, car horn, etc. https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/ I hope some of my work is helpful!
  4. Hi guys, New free images are waiting for your projects on these pages: ART – Cobblestones More mad experimenting. I made some pixel art style images from a couple of my cobblestone images. Maybe for castles and things? They look pretty cool scaled down. Feel free to edit / take samples from them / scale them as needed, etc. https://soundimage.org/art-cobblestones/ ART – Brick Some new pixel art-style brick images. Trying to come up with some fresh new looks. Feel free to edit / take samples from them / scale them as needed, etc. https://soundimage.org/art-brick/ MUSIC UPDATE: WAV files proved too large to upload onto Gumroad in any reasonable amount of time…(we’re talking about 1900+ tracks) so I’m uploading Ogg files instead. I’ve started with my Fantasy page. They sound really great…give them a try! Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, feel free to contact me. Have a good week and keep being creative!
  5. Greetings! I’ve had a number of requests for uncompressed versions of my tracks, so I’ve begun making them available on Gumroad for a small free to help support the site. The MP3 files that I make freely available sound very good, but the original uncompressed WAV files sound really incredible…give them a try! If anyone is curious as to why I didn’t upload WAV files to begin with, the reason is that my web hosting service places limitations on file sizes and WAV files tend to be very large. Anyhow, it’s going to take some time to upload everything, so if anyone has any requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, just drop me an email and I’ll upload them to Gumroad for you. Feel free to convert to Ogg or any format you like. That said, this week’s new free tracks are: On my Sci-Fi 8 page: EMERGING ALIEN CIVILIZATIONS – (Looping) – As they become industrialized, hopefully they won’t make the same mistakes we have. https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-8/ And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page, more large city street ambience: STREET CORNER_M-30 – Traffic, distant sirens, pedestrians, someone whistles, trucks passing, talking, horns, etc. STREET CORNER_M30_2 – Noisy traffic passes, pedestrians, talking, distant brakes squeak, etc. https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/ Enjoy!
  6. Hey everyone, For those of you who have been using my original music in your projects, I’ve had a good number of requests for uncompressed versions of my tracks, so I’ve begun making them available on Gumroad for a small fee to help support the site.

Anyhow, it’s going to take some time to upload everything, so if anyone has any requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, just drop me an email and I’ll upload them to Gumroad for you.

  13. Well, I’ve hit the 1900 track mark. It’s a little hard to believe, especially since I started the site with just 100 tracks.
