Sharing my Music and Sound Effects - Over 900 Tracks

Eric Matyas
Hi everyone,

I've created over 900 tracks of music and sound effects that you are welcome to freely use in your games, visual novels or anything else you can think of. It's all original...all my own work. All I ask is to be attributed as detailed on my homepage:

http://soundimage.org/

I sincerely hope some of my tracks are helpful. Any and all feedback is welcome and always appreciated. :)

All the best,

Eric

Do you produce music with those? If so, I might have some questions. I just recently began producing some hip-hop beats for a student at school and would like to pick your brain on production techniques. Let me know! Thanks!

Yes, I compose and perform every track on my site. I use a dedicated synthesizer and record/edit/mix in Sonar. It's actually a very simple set up. :)

XanMag
I'll take look at Sonar and ask if I've got questions. My problem is that I am very good at recognizing sounds and what sounds good but I'm definitely not good creating with instruments! I know... Not ideal for a "producer". So currently I'm downloading/buying tons of loops, editing them, and merging them together to create an instrumental. 80% of my sounds are edited loops and the other 20% are VERY basic original creations. A simple hip-hop beat can literally take hours. If I could play instruments, I could crank them out in much less time!

If you're bored and have time, I'd love a PM with a few crucial and essential tips for a beginner. Thanks for sharing.

Eric Matyas
You're very welcome. All of the rhythms in my tracks are derived from my synth, so I've never had to build them the way you are...I'm afraid I wouldn't be of much help. But feel free to email me anytime...(my email address is at the bottom of my page.)

I hope some of my tracks come in handy! :-)

Hey, Eric!

On a current project I am developing and not sure yet if I will publish, I decided using one of your wind effects and selected about three musics to pick one, perhaps two.

I am planning to credit you on game description and as I am only sounds of yours, I am planning credit you by name and place you page's link. Is that format ok for you?

Thanks for the sounds.


Deckrect

Oh, yes. I also suggest fade in and fade out on some tracks. I am editing this feature in order to avoid music entering the game "too hard".


Eric Matyas

Sounds fine. Please make sure to credit me within the actual game...that's very important. And please feel free to send me a link to your game when it's done...I'd love to see it! :)

This week's new free tracks are:

"Defending the Princess Haunted" v001 and 002
http://soundimage.org/epic-battle/

"A Long Journey for a Little Bot" on the Sci-Fi 5 page
http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-5/

"Retro Frantic_v001_Looping" on the Action Page

"Magic Clock Shop_Looping" on the Fantasy 6 Page

Eric Matyas

Hi everyone,

This week is a mixed bag. First off, I made looping versions of a some of the tracks on my Events/Travel page...I think these new looping pieces could sound very nice in games.

Here they are:

"Puddle Jumping_Looping"

"Magical Getraway_Looping"

"Mystical Journey_Looping"
http://soundimage.org/events/

Here's a short intro piece that might be nice in a deep space game of some kind...or a video:

"Space Game Intro" on my Sci-Fi 5 Page
http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-5/

And a silly piece that might work in a crazy game or app:

"Monkey Races"
http://soundimage.org/funny-3/

Next up, we have some sound FX on my Sci-Fi Ambience Page, starting with another slimy sounding Alien swamp piece. As I say on my site, if Kirk tells you he's been to this place, he's full of crap.

"Alien Swamp 2"

"Alien Atmosphere" (Looping and non-looping)

"Dystopic City Drone"

"Dystopic City Echo"

http://soundimage.org/sfx-scifi-amb/

Just for kicks, we have:

"Creepy Percussion 11"

http://soundimage.org/sfx-creepy/

And lastly, we have a force field sound effect. In retrospect, maybe I should have named it "Energy Field" instead, but oh well.

"Force Field" on my Snd FX -Sci-Fi Page
http://soundimage.org/sfx-scifi/

As always, let me know if they are helpful! :-)
Eric


DavyB

Hi Eric, I like your sounds...they are very professional! In text adventures, in general, they seem most effective when used sparingly (e.g Zen Garden). In working on a couple of games I felt that there were a few standard situations where some form of sound would be beneficial. As well as general atmosphere music in selected places, I've identified four general situations:

  1. Short encouraging sound indicating progress (e.g. finding an object; opening a locked door)
  2. Longer encouraging sound indicating success after significant effort (e.g. completion of a maze; killing and end-level enemy)
  3. Short discouraging sound suggesting a problem (e.g. trying a key that doesn't open a door; trying to take an object that can't be moved)
  4. Short threatening sound indicating a challenge (e.g. appearance of an enemy)
    Do you have sounds that fit these categories?

Eric Matyas

Hi Davy,

You might try my SFX - Alerts page:

http://soundimage.org/sfx-alerts/

If those don't work, feel free to send me an email and we can see about creating some custom sounds for you. (My email address is at the bottom of my homepage.) :-)

Well, I've reached another milestone: 1000 tracks. I'd like to send out a big heart felt thank you to everyone who has been so supportive and encouraging...it really means a lot. THANK YOU!

That said, I have some new music to share as well as a couple of cool new sci-fi ambiences.

On the Fantasy 7 page, we have:
"Castle Lost"
"Dark Fantasy Open"
"Sad Lands"
http://soundimage.org/fantasy-7/

On the Horror/Surreal page, we have:

"Moment of Strange"
http://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/

On the Sci-Fi 5 Page, we have:

"More Introspective Machines"
http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-5/

And on the SFX- Sci-Fi Amb Page, we have:

"Creepy Mech Drone" (Looping) - 2 versions.
http://soundimage.org/sfx-scifi-amb/

I hope they are helpful! :-)

Hi everyone,

I've been receiving an increasing number of emails asking if I do custom tracks. The answer is yes...and at very low cost...(people are usually surprised when they find out how affordable it is.)
