Hi all,


I want some new sounds for my game and what I need are abstract sounds like clicking, bleeping, popping sounds that are created with a program and are not just simply recorded by a microphone.


Do you know what are these called and how can I search for them? Because every time I search for game sounds and game sfx I only find gun shots, background music, chainsaw sounds and such and I can't seem to find a category that only contains this type of sounds.


I would also be interested in sound packs that would only contain such sounds.


Here are some example sounds from freesound that are similar to what I'm looking for, but I would need a higher quality and preferably in a pack where the sounds work with each other without further editing:


Clicking sound:

Popping sound:

Bleeping sound:


Thanks for the help.

try Sound Ideas out of Canada. they do pro sfx libs priced from $100 to $1000+.


They may very well be the #1 sfx company on the planet. 


and odds are they have a sci-fi sfx cd for about $100.


i know they have a few CDs of sci-fi in The General 6000 series library.
