Free 16 Bit Retro Video Game Samples

Ok… I got to admit. When I hear that classic coin sound from Mario brother, I get a little gitty.  Don’t hold it against me.

I finally got around to collecting all the random sound design bits I have made over the year emulating the classic video game sounds. I compiled it all together into on free / by donation sample pack for 16 bit sounds.  It’s a collection of coin sounds, power-ups, lasers, jumps, and more. All you need to add that nostalgic touch.

Here is a link to the free / by donation download:

Free Live 10 Audio Effect Racks – FTW!

Live 10 is out, and it’s awesome!  Took me a while to really get some of the improvements, but over time I fell in love all over again.  Live added some awesome effects and it made my sound designer brain happy. Over the last few months I have been developing these Audio Effect Racks using the powerful new devices.

Here is a video walkthrough of the three free/by donation audio effect racks in Live 10:

Big Pad Chords – Virtual Riot, Odesza, Wavetable

So bass will only get you so far. You also need chords, pads, and other sounds to make the track feel finished. I am a big fan of lush chords. The kind I hear in Virtual Riot’s and Odesza’s tracks. I made this new Wavetable Preset with that sound in mind. Check out the video below or grab the preset for a $1.

Celtic Harp Instrument Rack

Good music is all about dynamics. One way I am able to get my music to have a wider range is having many different types of instruments. Instead of just having synths, I love to mix in organic acoustic sounds, physical modeling synths, and square wave synths. It gives the track interesting sounds and feels more dynamic and full.

One instrument I love to mix in my synth-heavy tracks is this Celtic Harp I created. It’s so clean and pops out the mix. It can add a delicate flavor to an otherwise heavy track.

This instrument is for free / by donation.  Check out the video below and a link to the download.
