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.
just popped in on a recommendation from a friend (looking for publishers for my game myself), and saw this forum.
Since I just recently had a very good experience, I thought some others might like it.
I needed music for my game, and although I do have a composer who did some tunes, I really wanted an audio-cd full of music to accompany the game (the game is not very large in bytes, and therefore it would be a waste of CD-space to leave it empty).
In any case, I decided to head over to www.mp3.com, listen to a lot of stuff, and then ask the artists for permission to use their music.
That way, I''d have music with my game, and the authors would have more exposure for their music.
I can tell you it worked! Almost all artists I contacted agreed, in exchange for a copy of the game when it''s finished (and credits in the game/manual of course)
So in case you need some good quality audio music for your games, try www.mp3.com (or contact any other composer). I guess as long as they are not too big (well known) yet, they might be likely to agree.
