NEWS

More Ogg Music Packs are ready!

A good number of game developers have asked me if they can download multiple music tracks all at once instead of one at a time, so I’m making Ogg music packs available that include all of the tracks for any given page once that page is full and I’m no longer adding any more tracks to it.

You’ll see a button near the top of the page if a music pack is available.

Presently, music packs are available for the following pages:

Action 1
Chiptunes 1-3
Fantasy 1-10
Dark/Ominous
Horror / Surreal
Looping Music
Puzzle Music 1-5
Sci-Fi / Space

If you find my work helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

Have a joyous and safe holiday!

Well, three cows because you have three threads, even if one is less active than the other two.

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.

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/

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. You can access it from the menu bar toward the top of my site.

In the meantime, if you find my free music to be helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.

Please stay safe.

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/

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.

Happy February Everyone,

This week I have a cool new sci-fi track, some quirky chiptunes tracks and a nice fantasy track. All are free to use with attribution:

On my Sci-Fi 10 page:

“CYBERPUNK CITY GAME MENU” – (Looping) – Kind of a dreamy/techno/slightly ominous feel.

https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/

And on my Fantasy 1 page:

“IMAGINARY PLACES” – (Looping) – Perhaps for the intro to a fantasy game?
