Welcome to the Music and Sound forum on GD.net. Pull up a chair, listen to some tracks by your peers and discuss all things music and sound. We're happy to have you. Please check out the FAQ link for some basic (and mostly common sense) approaches used in this forum. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
There aren't many guides or resources for learning sfx. I need some for a game that I am working on by myself but I don't know how to make sfx and need some resources. If anyone can recommend a place to star I would be grateful.
There are also resources such as http://audiojungle.net/ that have Sound Effects for sale for cheap. Most sound designers have staple libraries of sound effects that they post process in audio editors. You might want to just buy sounds if you're not really familiar with editing sounds. I second try using something like Audacity (Free) to experiment with processing effects.
