Free sound effects for all!

Posted by The-Super-Flash-Bros - September 16th, 2009


Hey guys,

FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER OR NOT @SFBTom

In my spare moments over the last week or two, I've been porting the excellent sfxr by Tomas Pettersson into AS3, and it's finally done!

If you haven't used sfxr before, it's a really neat app that lets you generate your own custom game sound effects, using the same kind of synthesizers that the classic consoles used. When you're done tweaking the sound, you can save it out as a .wav ready to import into Flash

I've added a few features into my version, like history buttons and copy/paste functionality, but everything from the original is there too, even the .wav export feature!

Play around with the app here

Even better, I've made it open source too, so you can use the synthesizer in your own code. That means for roughly 10kB, you can have as many sound effects in your game/movie as you like, without adding more filesize for each one. Check out the google code description page for a very simple demo of how to use SfxrSynth in your work, and to download the source code.

Google Code project here

AS3, FP10 for the code only though I'm afraid. If you're using an earlier version, you can always export the .wav from the app to use just like any other!

Tom-

HUZZAH

Man, that app is wicked!

you deserve a lot of props for this! It seems like it could be infinitely useful, and it's just fun to play around with :D!

That is REALLY amazing. I absolutely hate tracking down sound effects for games. I'll definitely be using this. You rock!

Me too, so when Dim sent me a (broken) link to the original sfxr, I was overjoyed! I figured having it as a flash app will let more people use it, plus it was a fun challenge for me. Yay!

Yeah ! We search this all my life, thanks guy !

I like how it has an export wav button, though you have to make sure to stick .wav on the end of the filename when you save it.

that really is awesome

Free sound effects for all except Flash 8 users!!

Fantastic, RIGHT INTO MY BOOKMARKS.
Thanks.

I just want to run over to England and give you a hug...This is awesome!

aweeesome

Can you legally use this in say a project going on DvD?

You mean the sounds from it? Sure, all royalty free!

Tom-

bin usin this for ages. its crazy how many different coin sounds you can hear.

first i thought "meh, it's just a syntheziser..." but that's because i missed the part where it said "can be used in the programmers own code"!!!

now THAT'S good shit! :)

will you marry me?

Ok, honestly, as of now, I have no idea what the fuck all this is because I don't have flash yet. I'll be getting it soon though.....hopefully.

Old news bro

Haha, I was using this to do the sound effects for my series Gameoverse. Nice.

Did I ever tell you how much I love you

You've forgotten about decline of gaming, your best series :[
