has anyone downloaded all these and put them in a zip file, I'd love to have all the tracks but I don't have time to download one by one and I am a broke baby tuber so I don't have money to buy the Packs for the high quality tracks.

A lot of folks don't realize that I have 15 pages full of free sound effects on my site. Just like my music tracks, they're free to use with attribution. Links to my sound effects pages are listed on the right side of every page on my site below the music links.

Looks interesting, but I wonder:
  • Why aren't you offering lossless formats like FLAC?
  • What aren't you using a common license like CC-BY (see https://creativecommons.org/ and https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
  • Testing the metadata of one file ("Kingdom of Darkness") I saw date "0000-05-17" (guessing the format should be "YYYY-MM-DD"); a mistake?
  • The copyright tag for that track just says "2017"; Why not add the actual copyright there? (See the note on CC-BY, too)
  • You don't seem to set "performer" or "album" tags
  • I guess the "Ogg packages" are in Ogg/Vorbis that Resolve does not support yet
OK, I browsed the FAQ, and you explain why not using CC-BY. However let me remark (seeing and understanding your intent) that your prohibited uses may be affected by cultural differences (say compare Denmark with Saudi Arabia).

I've had several people ask me how to find my newest tracks on my site. For genres with multiple pages, my newest tracks are on the pages with the highest numbers...(for example, my newest fantasy tracks are on my Fantasy 12 page...my oldest ones are on Fantasy 1.) Anyhow, I went ahead and reordered the text links to my music pages (right side of the screen) to reflect this. The tracks on each page are the same as always. If anyone has any questions, don't hesitate to reach out.

Have a good week! :-)

This week's new free-to-use-with-attribution music tracks are all on my Sci-Fi 12 page. They are:

"STRANDED IN THE OUTER RIM"_LoFi
"CIRCUIT PUNK GAME MENU"_LoFi
"ALIEN COLOSSEUM"_LoFi

OGG vs. MP3 TRACKS

For those of you who need looping tracks, I would highly recommend using the Ogg versions of my tracks. Besides sounding richer, Ogg tracks loop better in game engines. The reason for this is that the MP3 encoding process sometimes discards a tiny amount of audio information at the looping point. This causes a noticeable audio gap when the track loops. Mp3 encoding doesn't do this every single time, but it does it enough to be annoying. Ogg encoding doesn't discard any audio information so tracks always loop seamlessly.

In terms of audio quality, the MP3 versions of my tracks do sound very good...that's because the synthesizers I use are all top-of-the-line and produce very high quality sound. Still, the Ogg versions sound even better...almost as good as the original WAV recordings right out of my synths...but are much smaller in file size. WAV files are enormous.

My recommendation is to use my MP3 tracks as placeholders and then replace them with my Ogg tracks once you've decided which music you want to use.

My premium Ogg music packs are here:
https://soundimage.org/ogg-music-packs-2/

You can also search for individual Ogg tracks on my Gumroad page. When doing so, make sure to include _ogg after each title because that's how the tracks are named.

https://soundimage.gumroad.com/

Have a good week! :-)
