Hi everybody,

Can anyone tell me or suggest where can I get free music, music loops, and sounds for use in games

I'm currently writing my own XNA game, but, like a lot of programmers out there, my strength is in coding, I'm no good at producing or creating music or sounds.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If it's an interesting concept I might be interested in contributing some assets for your game, in return for a credit and being able to use it as part of my portfolio.

Music and sounds from libraries tend to be generic and hollow, but can be useful in certain situations.

While not free, you can stop by your local computer store (like CompuUSA) and pick up a cheap $5 CD of soundFX. That's what I've done and it's saved me a ton of time trying to track down sounds.

Here's the link to the one I picked up. There are some places online to grab free sounds, but the ones I visited were plagued with pop-ups and slow load time and impossible to find things I really wanted.

I noticed that GarageGames also has a section where they sell smaller sounds set for use in the $20 range so you might head over there and see if you can find anything useful.

Since I last posted. I've discovered a free utility for creating soundFX which you use to make your own simple sound FX.

Also, keep your eye on the Music and Sound portfolios at Indiegamer. They often have some free loops they give away for use as long as you give them credit. Especially the newer composers just looking to get into the industry.

Last, I've been getting some free loops from a site called PeaceLoveProductions. They have a variety of styles and their terms are great for people making games as a hobby.

Hope that helps.

Thanks a lot George!

I will definitely check all the links you mentioned. I already bought the CompUSA CD you mentioned earlier, and it's pretty good for those of us who lack sound FXs. Once again, thanks for your post!
