Here are a few tips to create yourself the effect of an object passing by, starting with a simple sound, and artificially recreating the impression that it is driving or flying in front of you. Whether it's a car, a spaceship or a flying dragon. Please like this video, comment, and subscribe to my channel !

Nice tutorial. I would note that for games you really want the engine handling the Doppler effect. If you bake the effect in the sound you limit the possibilities for that sound to a single event and any further timing changes to that event becomes a nightmare.

Sorry, just saw your message. You are absolutely right ! And that goes for all kinds of effects. Reverbs, spatial localization and so on.

Thanks for your input !

      Royalty Free Music for Game Developers
      If you found this page, you probably wondered at some point, "Why is it called Royalty Free Music when none of it is FREE?!" and maybe you already learned the definition of Royalty Free does not necessarily mean the content itself is free but rather refers to the "right to use copyrighted material without the need to pay license fees or usage fees."
      To put it simply, Royalty Free just means you don't have to pay to use the content. So why do so many people charge for it, and isn't that exactly the opposite of what Royalty Free means? Obviously artists and content makers who spend a lot of effort making something should be rewarded for their time, but in my opinion, they should not use the term "Royalty Free" to refer to their paid content.
      That is why I developed a FREE Royalty Free Music for YouTube Library for anyone and everyone who is looking for free professional music to use in their films, television shows, youtube promos, video games, you get the picture.
      How to Download
      To begin, simply choose a category of music from the list on the website linked above:

      Once you have selected your desired category of music, hover your mouse or finger over it and click the red button that appears to open up a small window with a media player in it that will look something like this:

      Click a song to listen to it, and click the down arrow to download the song, it's that easy!
      Licensing & Copyright Information
      If you like the song and you want to use it in a non-commercial project (something that does not earn you money) you can do that for free simply by attributing me in your credits somewhere! Just put "Music by Jordan Winslow on https://jordanwinslow.me/royaltyfreemusic" or simply "Music Downloaded from https://jordanwinslow.me/royaltyfreemusic"
      If you would like to use the music in a commercial project (something that earns you money) there is still no charge, but one more step: simply fill out the Royalty Free Music Commercial License Request Form.
      Downloading Free Royalty Free Music for your YouTube creations has never been so easy!

      Hey
       
      I have recently put together a small portfolio with the intention of going to developers to try get freelance work producing music for video games. 
      I am after some constructive criticisms and maybe a reality check as to weather my music is even close to good enough to present to developers asking for paid work. 
      Link to portfolio: https://cmarshallost.wordpress.com/
       
      Ill appreciate any feedback and advice, thanks.
