Do you need music for your game? Are you using copyrighted music, or bad music, or no music at all?

Well, I am giving away 100's of tracks of game music to indie game devs for free! This music is all composed by me and all samples/instruments in them are licensed in full, so this music is completely royalty free.

You can find the collection at :

http://www.nosoapradio.us

The tracks are sorted by Genre.

Thanks, and enjoy!

Nice work, many of them sound a little nostalgic to me, reminding me of the old 16 bit console days. But your tracks are a lot crisper and fresher sounding. I may look to use some of these in some upcoming action arcade titles I am working on. Keep up the good work.

These are nice.

It's going to take me a while to listen through them all!

Thank you very much for sharing. I've only had time to listen to some of them, but they are really good. I might use some in my upcoming game.

Wow excellent work. I'm interested in the Medievil/Classical ones, so far they sound really good.

Wow, these are great (and exactly the kind of retro music I was looking for)! Nice work. Also kudos for stating up from that you're not using unlicensed samples.

Is there a specific license (or licenses) you are releasing these under?

I read through the FAQ and I believe I understand your intent, but this particular clause is a little unclear to me:

Songs may not be redistributed or sold


I'm assuming this means that the songs may not be redistributed/re-released by themselves, but it could also mean that they cannot be redistributed as part of a game.

Thanks again for your hard work!

Wow, that's really cool; thank you.

I can't find a license on your website - how do you want to receive credit?
If I was to use one or more of your songs in my game, would the following in the games credits be sufficient?

The song '<songname>' was made by Deceased Superior Technician

Listened to several of them, they're great! Perfect for a game that I'm working on.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, i'm glad you are finding this resource useful!

@Deraj: Songs may not be sold as songs, but can be used in a game or as a soundtrack to cinema. This is mostly to protect them from sample resellers trying to put them on a cd and sell that. Though i probably should put a clearer license up.

@Servant: Sure

I know it's a tough climb to get out in the world of gaming right now, and i just want to help the hard working people get a little farther.

DSTGames, your music is wonderful and I think your generosity could lead you to get hired as a music producer for games. My brother and I are making a game called Math Asteroids and your tunes have really helped spice up the game. Thanks so much.

If you're curious to see how we are using your tunes, try the game out (it's free): http://www.digitalruby.com/mathasteroids/install

Thanks again for this!

It sounds perfect with my game! And I'm the type of guys that gives credit so, this website gets to be in the credits!

I am working on a shooter, and I thought maybe I could mess around with your music in audacity (hope you don't mind) and it sounded amazing! So I'll give you credit even if it's

royalty free!
