Sound FX and Music Libraries

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have or know of any great (and free ideally) libraries for sound effects and music for games?


It's one thing to code and design a great game, but what about sound? Where do you get your effects from? Do you record your own or buy some from certain websites?


Is there a specific format for games or can you use anything from mp3 to WAV?


What other considerations need to be considered?


Thanks in advance :)

There is a site I use that has great sound effects (which I don't tend to share). They normally charge $1-$4 per sound effect, and since I knew I was planning to use a lot of sound effects in some of my upcoming major projects I paid $1000 for a hard drive collection of all of their audio. And that was on a half price sale ;) A pricey investment, but well worth it.


For music, I either work with a professional musician I'm in contact with (and incredibly lucky to have found), or for my free games I head over to Newgrounds.com
