I am currently working on a small freeware rpg project whose team consist of two members. Everything was going well until a realised : "where/how the heck am I gonna do my sounds?". Anyone has suggestions for programs, Commercial/shareware/freeware or know where I can get help. If poeple could recomend sound libraries I read in a previous post someone saying SoundAmerica was not that bad... Any help in any form would be appreciated !

If you have your own devlopment team, Magnum games and are working on larger scale project than me you should perharps find/hire a part time of full time sound engeneer via the help wanted message board or this message board. Or you should try to encourage one of your mussicians to learn about making sounds, tough I admit if you have no clue as to where to lead him so he can begin his learning that can be quite a task.

I didn''t pay for any of mine so far. There''s plenty of free ones, and they sound pretty alright to me.

I can''t remember any good sites off-hand though. Just do a search, there''s plenty of decent free sites out there.

If you really want to create your own sound effects, I recommend you get into cSound. (www.csound.org) This is a sound generation program that runs from scripts, allowing you to create any sound possible, in any sample rate. The scripting features include additive and subtractive synthesis, granular synthesis, filters and other amazing things. You may also load samples in and edit them in any way you need (noise reduction, reverb).

There are executables for nearly every OS. This program is 100% free, and is constantly being upgraded.

Be warned though; it is a little tough at first, but once the initial concepts are overcome the creation of new sounds and music are extremely rewarding.

There are plenty of examples and tutorials available from the links at csound.org. If you really get into it, I recommend you pick up The cSound Book (available from most online book stores). The book comes with 2 CDs full of examples and audio clips. You have to check out "The Electric Priest"-- it is amazing!

Yeah, this sounds like an infomercial, but cSound is one of the few programs that is worth shouting about.
