  1. Hi everyone, I've got a site up with over 2000 tracks of free music and sound effects that you can use in your games. It's all original...all my own work. All I ask is to be credited as indicated on my homepage: http://soundimage.org/ I sincerely hope my tracks are helpful. Any and all comments are welcome and always appreciated. All the best, Eric

    Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2000 Tracks

    Hi everyone, For this week, I’ve created some cool creepy music tracks that might be helpful. Free to use with attribution: On my Fantasy 11 page: “SCARY THINGS AHEAD” “SCARY THINGS AHEAD 2” https://soundimage.org/fantasy-11/ On my Horror 2 page: “SURREALIZATION” https://soundimage.org/horror-2/ And a wild chiptunes-style track on my Chiptunes 4 page: “WILD RIDE THROUGH TOKYO” – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/ NEWS It’s great to see that people are beginning to download my Ogg music packs…I’m so glad they’re helpful! Personally, I think they’re a really good value…you get all of the Ogg tracks from any given page on my site (usually around 20) for the same price as purchasing 3 tracks individually. Check them out! The MP3 versions, as always, are completely free. Speaking of which, if you find my free music to be helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts. Keep safe and stay healthy.
  3. Hi everyone, I've been building a library of images that you are welcome to freely use in your projects. They are all original...all my own work. I think a lot of them could be made into cool textures for games. All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage: http://soundimage.org/ The images are on my "TXR" pages. I'm adding new ones all the time, so be sure to check back often. I sincerely hope that some of them are useful. Any and all constructive feedback is welcome and always appreciated. All the best, Eric

    This week we have more free chiptunes-inspired music on my Chiptunes 4 page: “SUMMERS IN QUIRKYVILLE” (standard and looping) “COIN-OP STRANGENESS” (standard and looping) “NOSTALGIC FOR QUIRKYVILLE” (standard and looping) https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/ NEWS For those of you who are using my free images, the links menu on my site has gotten out of control (again) so I’ve created a menu page for all of my image pages.

    Happy New Year, fellow creatives! Did everybody drink too much? I certainly hope so! ;-) Seriously, though, 2020 was pretty rough…I really hope 2021 is better. Anyhow, here are some brand new MP3 music tracks to kick off the New Year. 100% free to use with attribution: GOINGS-ON IN PIXEL TOWN (standard and looping) THE 8-BIT MARCH (standard and looping) WINDLE PIXEL’S 8-BIT CIRCUS (standard and looping) https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/ NEWS Continuing my quest to provide Ogg versions of all my music tracks, I just added my history music page to the list. https://soundimage.org/ancient/ If you aren't familiar with the Ogg format, it has several advantages over MP3 audio: -Ogg tracks sound fantastic…almost as good as the original WAV recordings from which they are derived…plus they are much smaller in terms of file size. -Game engines handle looping Ogg tracks better…MP3 tracks occasionally have to be edited at the looping point. Give them a try! In the meantime, if you find my free MP3 tracks helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts. Have a good week and please stay safe.

    Happy New Year! I hope everyone didn’t drink too much…ha ha. ;-) To kick off 2021, brand new seamless texture images are waiting for you on these pages: TXR – Ground – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-ground-cartoon/ TXR – Metal – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-metal-cartoon/ TXR – Rock/Stone – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-cartoon/ The images aren’t necessarily “cartoony” but are more graphical and less realistic than my other images. NEWS For those of you using my music tracks, my History page now has Ogg versions of my tracks on it. Ogg tracks have several advantages over MP3 tracks: -They loop better in game engines (MP3 tracks sometimes need to be edited.) -They sound amazing…almost as good as the original WAV tracks while being much smaller in size. -They are a cool way to support my efforts. Give them a try! In the meantime, if you find my free assets helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts. Have a good week!

    I know...it's a huge loss...I couldn't believe it when I heard the news. I really admired him, not only for his music, but for how he and his band played small venues for years and years before they ever got a record deal. I remember hearing him say it took 10 years. I've often wished that I could write songs and play in a band, but I don't have that specific type of writing ability so I've focused on instrumental music instead. A tribute piece is a wonderful idea, but to be honest, my style of music creation is so different that I doubt I would be able to create something that was true to his style. It's a really nice thought, though. :-) Anyhow... Hello Fellow Creatives, If you possibly can, please consider making a small donation to support my website. I don’t allow any advertising on the site because I feel that it would be distracting to my visitors. My website is 100% community supported. Please help support this project…thanks in advance. Halloween is only a couple of weeks away, so this week’s new MP3 tracks are all on my Horror 2 page. They are: GHOULS RULE – (Looping) GHOULS RULE_V001 – (Looping) SOMETHING AWFUL THIS WAY COMES MORE AWFUL THINGS THIS WAY COME – (Looping) MORE AWFUL THINGS THIS WAY COME_V001 – (Looping) https://soundimage.org/horror-2/ Feel free to share my site with anyone who might find it helpful.
