Sound FX and Music Libraries

8 posts in this topic

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

For some retro FX, you might wanna take a look at http://www.egonelbre.com/js/jsfx/ which is an sfxr clone for JS. You can also get access to the underlying data through the data URI, uudecode it, and then save it to a binary file if you prefer.
