#5071042 How to create sound effects quick and dirty?

Posted by on 19 June 2013 - 01:31 AM

Hey, I'm quite new myself to this craft. When I first got to this forum I read Nathan Madsen's thread "Creating SFX", you should check it out :) http://www.gamedev.net/topic/523411-creating-sfx/


Also, you could check out Flashkit if you want free SFX, though Nathan might have thing or two to say about free stuff :)


Good luck and have fun!


#5067030 Requesting Brutal Constructive Criticism

Posted by on 03 June 2013 - 02:10 AM

Hi! I've listened to the track quite a few times. I don't know if this is much for feedback, but I'll tell you what came to me during the song while imagining a post-apocalyptic world. 

0:00-0:20= Unknown territory, feeling uneasy, danger.

0:21-0:54= Rising to the challenge, bravery, rising spirits.

0:55-end = Lowering of moral, lost, uncertainty.


I play and record a lot on my guitar - and it was nice playing- however, I did think it was rather prominently to my right. Could it be an idea to place the guitarist in front and more amongst the orchestra, if that makes sense? I see you have in your requirements to "show case the guitar parts; I reckon that criteria was listed by the employer?
All in all, I think it's a good track. Well done, mate.

Hi! This here is good stuff in the "Old School" segment. Brings back memories, especially to Megaman for some reason.

#5064473 Hi~ Looking for feedback :D

Hi, you! 

First of all, I'd like to say; we're all lazy. To copy paste your link is usually a hazzle, but I still did it :) 
Now, the music. I listened to most of your show reel, which for a starter is a little too long. My patience usually gets worn out after about 10 mins or so. Try picking out your absolute favourites, and only include them.
These are the songs I felt the need to comment:
Peaceful Village: It starts out OK, but at 2:00 and onwards I'm getting the feeling that something bad is about to happen or just happened, and to me that doesn't mix with the title. Other than the title clash, I'm happy with it; It sets a mood, though maybe not a peaceful one. 
Medieval Village: I like the birds and I like the flute. It gave me the sense of being in medieval England, kinda like Robin Hood; until the drums kicked in - then I got warped into Africa.
Halloween Scare: It's a good track. However, I think a more distinct bass sound would make it even more scary.

All in all, I think the music is good. Thanks for sharing, and I hope I haven't been too crude!
