Free 16 Bit Retro Video Game Samples

Ok… I got to admit. When I hear that classic coin sound from Mario brother, I get a little gitty.  Don’t hold it against me.

I finally got around to collecting all the random sound design bits I have made over the year emulating the classic video game sounds. I compiled it all together into on free / by donation sample pack for 16 bit sounds.  It’s a collection of coin sounds, power-ups, lasers, jumps, and more. All you need to add that nostalgic touch.

Here is a link to the free / by donation download:

Making String / Violin sounds with Wavetable

Ok… string/orchestra sounds is something every good producer needs. Even if you just use it as a pad in the background, it can add a subtle dimension to your track.  I made a rad preset in Ableton Live 10’s Wavetable.  Below is a video walkthrough on how to make it yourself, or grab the preset for a $1 below.

Have fun using the preset and adding it to your tunes. Perfect for backing in Future Bass, electronic / indie, or other styles. Enjoy ;)

Free Live 10 Audio Effect Racks – FTW!

Live 10 is out, and it’s awesome!  Took me a while to really get some of the improvements, but over time I fell in love all over again.  Live added some awesome effects and it made my sound designer brain happy. Over the last few months I have been developing these Audio Effect Racks using the powerful new devices.

Here is a video walkthrough of the three free/by donation audio effect racks in Live 10:

Big Pad Chords – Virtual Riot, Odesza, Wavetable

So bass will only get you so far. You also need chords, pads, and other sounds to make the track feel finished. I am a big fan of lush chords. The kind I hear in Virtual Riot’s and Odesza’s tracks. I made this new Wavetable Preset with that sound in mind. Check out the video below or grab the preset for a $1.
