Sharing My Music and Sound FX - Over 2000 Tracks

Hi everyone,

If you need some original music and sound effects for your projects, I've created over 2000 tracks that you are welcome to freely use. All I ask is to be attributed as explained on my website:

soundimage.org/

I sincerely hope some of my work is helpful. Any and all feedback is welcome and much appreciated.

Enjoy!

    Very cool, enjoying going through your catalog of music. I'm returning to an adventure game I started a few years ago and some of the loops are perfect.

  • Awesome...I'm glad some of my work will be helpful! :-)

    Speaking of which...

    Good News:

    Super high-quality Ogg versions of all of my Puzzle Music Tracks are ready. That’s around 100 tracks to choose from…all created from my original WAV recordings (but much smaller in file size.) They’re really cool, too, because they can be used for all kinds of things in addition to puzzle games. You’ll find them on my Puzzle Music 1-5 pages.

    More Good News:
    All of the tracks on my Fantasy 9 page now have Ogg versions as well. They sound great!

    And even MORE good news:
    If you create arcade-style games (or know someone who does) Ogg versions of all the tracks on my Chiptunes 1 page are now ready, too.

    That said, this week’s new free MP3 tracks are:

    On my Epic / Battle page:
    PREPARING FOR BATTLE – (Looping)

    On my Fantasy 10 page:
    THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM – (Looping)

    And on my Looping Music page:
    RACING MENU_V001 – (Looping)
    80’S SPACE GAME LOOP_V002

    Keep being creative and please stay safe.

    The newest releases of Gideros should be able to stream these track too I think - so they won't affect build size.

  • Hey there, I'm not an I.T. person so I don't really understand your question, but my tracks are meant to be downloaded from my site and then used. Thanks. :-)

    OGG TRACKS UPDATE

    Super high-quality Ogg versions of all my Fantasy Tracks are finally ready. That’s about 200 tracks to choose from…all created from my original WAV recordings (but much smaller in file size.) They sound great and are a cool way to support my work.

    Misty Bog
    Mystical Backstory_v001_Looping

  • Another Special Request to Everyone:

    If you possibly can, please consider making a small donation on my website to support my work. The synthesizers I use to create free music for everyone are very expensive (2 Korgs and a Yamaha.) I actually have to make monthly payments on them and donations from the creative community really help me a LOT to pay for them. Thanks in advance. :-)

    That said, I managed to get a couple of new tracks done for everyone. Free to use, as always, with attribution:

    On My Epic / Battle page:
    “COMRADES ALWAYS” (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/epic-battle/

    On my Fantasy 10 page:
    “OF KNIGHTS AND KINGS” (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/

    Please stay safe and healthy.

    ROBO BOSS BATTLE – (Looping)
    GRUNGE STREET – (Looping)
    MOONLIT CYBER ALLEYS – (Looping)

  • Another very busy week…and I’m a bit under the weather…but here are some new tracks for everyone. Free to use, of course, with attribution.

    On my Puzzle Music 5 page:

    ISLAND OF PUZZLES – (Looping)
    TROPICAL MYSTERIES – (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-5/

    On my World page:

    EXOTIC DANGERS - (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/world/

    I’m glad to see that my Ogg files are being utilized…I’ll try to get more uploaded this week. If you need any that I haven’t done yet, just message me and I’ll upload them for you.

    Thanks for your support and please stay safe.

  • Hi Folks,

    This week’s new free music tracks are:

    On my Fantasy 10 page:
    A TRAIL OF JEWELS – (Looping)
    QUIRKY GAME WORLD – (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/

    On my Funny 7 page:
    THE FISHBOWL ACROBATS RETURN – (Looping)
    WINDLE’S WHIMSICAL STREET – (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/funny-7/

    If you’re wondering what the big fuss about Ogg tracks is, they have several advantages:

    -They are small in size.
    -Game engines seem to handle them better for looping…MP3 files occasionally need editing.
    -They sound fantastic…almost as good as my original WAVs.
    -They’re a cool way to support my work!

    @EricMatyas You should put a note on your website about streaming directly from it. Do you mind or would you rather files were copied off to another server before being streamed?

    My opinion: :smile:

    I think you should always copy it off to another server you maintain if you plan to stream, regardless of where you source media (sound, music, images).

    Two good reasons:

    1. You do not want a dependency that you have no control over (that 3rd party site could go down, files renamed, etc)
    2. You do not want to cause abuse problems for the original source that could get you in trouble later, if your app suddenly becomes popular.

    Also, in most cases I would not recommend streaming music in a game. You end up wasting the user's bandwidth each time they play the game versus a one time download bundled with the app. This causes increased complexity and costs to you in maintaining a server and paying for bandwidth, as well as the end gamer who now cannot play offline and needlessly wastes their bandwidth.

    Another option is downloading music/media that will be needed later, in the background and saving it. I may consider that for my adventure game if it gets too big. This also adds complexity, but maybe you want it for a game with unlockable content.

    That said, people are used to downloading 100MB+ games now so there is less reason not to include it in the app purely for size reduction.
