SFX Selling my sound effects on my own platform - Looking for feedback !

Olivier Girardot

724 views

I have recently created my own Sound Effects plateform:  http://www.ogsoundfx.com    Have a look !

There are basically 2 options that you can chose from: Packs or Single tracks.

1/ Sound effect packs/Full albums: Their price range from a few dollars up to $29 for huge collections of hundreds of sounds. If you have the budget, these packs are really worth the money. You can also wait for discounts if you are not in a hurry.

2/ Single tracks. The prices start at $0,99. The aim is to offer game developers or film makers the possibility to acquire specific sound effects for the lowest budget possible.

At the moment I am offering a 50% discount for purchases of a minimum value of $10 on single tracks. So if you have $5 to spare on super high quality and professional sound effects, you get $10 worth of a selection of your choice !

I am planning on creating a permanent volume discount scheme on those single tracks. The more you buy, the bigger the discount.

For now,  I am only selling my own sounds, but I want to expand by allowing other sound designers to sell their sounds on www.ogsoundfx.com. What do you think ?

Any opinion or advice you want to give on the presentation, the content, navigation and so on, are most welcome.

And I would be happy to compensate any feedback with a nice coupon code.

Oh and by the way, if you subscribe to the newsletter, you will not only be the first ones informed of great deals, but you will also receive 120 MB of free high quality sounds !

I hope to see you at http://www.ogsoundfx.com

You have a good concept for a platform here. :) Some issues with the site I would work on are:

- Adding a currency conversion option on the page so all prices will show in USD/CAD/EURO, ect...

- The top menu bar drifts to the right too much on a bigger display, I would find a way to center it.

The major problem I found is you have zero licensing information on the site. Anyone who is intending on using your sound and music for commercial use needs to know where they stand in terms of usage rights.

Also, if you plan on getting other people to place assets on your site you need to make sure they have rights, and you have some agreement to distribute on their behalf, ect... I would strongly suggest getting a lawyer to run through all of this for you to avoid future legal issues, and disputes.

Hi Rutin,

These are great remarks ! Thanks ! I'll see what I can do about the menu and the currency converter, that's actually a good idea.

You are absolutely right about the licensing agreement. Customers receive en EULA every time they purchase an album or a single sound effect, but it should definitely be easily accessible on the website. I am going to take care of that right away !

Yes, I would definitely need some legal advice or counselling if I want to proceed with other sound designers. I am working on it.

Thank you so much for your time. Now, what can I do for you ? Is there an album or 2 that might interest you ?

Send me your email address at olivier@ogsoundfx.com so I can create a personal coupon code for you !

All the best,

Olivier

Cool sound effects there and it's nice that single tracks can be purchased.

 

I don't know if it's only my browser but at 'About OG' after "Here are some examples of my sound effect and music work:" there is a huge white gap. I need to scroll way down to find the links.

Hi Gezu and thank you for your feedback.

Is your browser IE ? Because I seem to experience similar display problems on IE, but not at all on Chrome.

Are you able to see the audio players in the description of the "single tracks" ?

I am going to mention that to my web designer. Thanks for the feedback !

I will send you a private message with the coupon code you are entitled to, as promised :)

Olivier

TO EVERYBODY !

I am offering a $20 coupon code to everyone who gives me some feedback about my website http://www.ogsoundfx.com !

Thank you for the coupon! :D

I used chrome. Now it works for me using chrome and ie as well. Last time it didn't list those tracks and videos.

EDIT: and one more thing:

'I have recently created my own Sound Effects plateform' - platform  :D

      In my turn-based, RPG game, Forsaken Alchemy, I plan to have voiced character monologues and dialogues play along with some character animations after every battle, and I'd like to hear your thoughts on if wording is presented to be realistic in speech patterns, how all the characters sound in personality, if they sound similar in personality to each other, and any feedback on anything. There are in-battle criteria to trigger certain quotes more often than others, but I won't bore you with them. I just wanted to put that out in case you were curious how the below criteria matters in probability.
      Every quote in the solo quotes spoiler box is an instance of the character having a monologue. It's not him/her saying every single quote after one battle, so RNG will decide which of the listed solo quotes will play alone after a battle. For example,
      "Yes! I won!"
      and
      "That was easy!"
      are randomly picked per battle. The person is not saying, "Yes! I won! That was easy!"
      Solo quotes:
      When there's an empty line of space between dialogue, that means the next line is the start of a new dialogue. For the example below, after the second quote from Alvis is a different instance of dialogue that plays if RNG picks that to be played instead of the previous instance.
      Alvis: “I wish I knew even half as much knowledge that you know.”
      Victoria: “In time, you will.”
      Alvis: “That’s a pretty optimistic view.”
      Victoria: “For a scholar, you did well in that fight.”
      Alvis: “I’m just lucky I got out of it with everything intact.”
      Victoria: “You should be more confident about your keen strategies.”

      I am currently an indie game developer and I am looking to get a job with a game company as a game programmer. I worked for a game studio 9 years ago, but at the time I decided to get a day job as a software developer (non-game development), while focusing (as an indie developer), during my free time, on a vision for a game I've had for some time.
      This was then, but i've recently found myself unsatisfied with my day job and I am now thinking of going back to the game industry. The drive to make games is just too strong in me and I can no longer justify spending my days making software I am not excited about. Which leads me to my questions about a game programmer portfolio. Before i first got a job at a game studio i had built a couple of small games, this was way back though, around the year 2006. Would those be too old to showcase on a portfolio?
      Second question, i'd like to make the indie game i am working on available for potential recruiters to play, but I am not sure how to do that. I tried to put it up on Shimmer.io (kind like itch.io, but not as popular), but i ran into issues with that. It's a Unity game and the Web build i created for it was about 190 MB and it ran slowly and was very choppy on my machine, at which point i kind of gave up on the idea of putting it up online. The other option is to simply send (through email or Google drive) game companies a regular Unity build and let them play it that way. The question is, should i try to go the Web build route again and if so, any tips on making it work well this time? And also, if the Web build doesn't work again, would it be acceptable to send companies i apply for a regular build?

      Hello.
      I am developing a 2D engine, and I would just like to share it.
      It is called A2D.
      I'm trying to make it as simple and easy-to-use as possible and you can help me with it with your contributions.
      Currently it can be built for Desktop (Linux, Windows and macOS tested) and Mobile (Android and IOS tested).
      Features:
      C++11 (Higher versions may require some changes in settings) Entity-Component-System (Implementation is similar to Unity ECS with simplifications) Textures (with lodepng, only .png for now) Audio (with soloud audio engine) (in progress) Text rendering (with freetype) GLSL shaders cross-compilation (with glslcc) for supporting OpenGL ES  Physics (with box2d) (in progress) Cross-platform (Windows, Linux and macOS support with glfw + glew, Android - NDK (OpenGL ES), IOS - GLKit (OpenGL ES)) There is no screenshots yet, but they will appear soon.
      Anyway, thank you for reading and sorry for my english 😃
      You can contact with me - selya.main@gmail.com or just star github repository (https://github.com/ayles/A2D).
