  1. Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2000 Tracks

    This week we have more free chiptunes-inspired music on my Chiptunes 4 page: “SUMMERS IN QUIRKYVILLE” (standard and looping) “COIN-OP STRANGENESS” (standard and looping) “NOSTALGIC FOR QUIRKYVILLE” (standard and looping) https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/ NEWS For those of you who are using my free images, the links menu on my site has gotten out of control (again) so I’ve created a menu page for all of my image pages. You can access it from the menu bar toward the top of my site. In the meantime, if you find my free music to be helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts. Please stay safe.
  2. Building a Free Library of Images for Everyone

    Hi folks, Brand new seamless texture images are ready for you on these pages: TXR – Brick – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-brick-cartoon/ TXR – Concrete/Pavement – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-concrete-pavement-cartoon/ TXR – Organic – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-organic-cartoon/ NEWS The links menu on my site is getting a bit out of control (again) so I created a new page that contains buttons to access all of my image pages. You can get to it from the top menu bar. More music tracks should be ready for everyone tomorrow. Be sure to check my free music thread. In the meantime, if you find my free assets helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts. Stay healthy and safe.

    Happy New Year, fellow creatives! Did everybody drink too much? I certainly hope so! ;-) Seriously, though, 2020 was pretty rough…I really hope 2021 is better. Anyhow, here are some brand new MP3 music tracks to kick off the New Year. 100% free to use with attribution: GOINGS-ON IN PIXEL TOWN (standard and looping) THE 8-BIT MARCH (standard and looping) WINDLE PIXEL’S 8-BIT CIRCUS (standard and looping) https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/ NEWS Continuing my quest to provide Ogg versions of all my music tracks, I just added my history music page to the list. https://soundimage.org/ancient/ If you aren't familiar with the Ogg format, it has several advantages over MP3 audio: -Ogg tracks sound fantastic…almost as good as the original WAV recordings from which they are derived…plus they are much smaller in terms of file size. -Game engines handle looping Ogg tracks better…MP3 tracks occasionally have to be edited at the looping point. Give them a try! In the meantime, if you find my free MP3 tracks helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts. Have a good week and please stay safe.

    Happy New Year! I hope everyone didn’t drink too much…ha ha. ;-) To kick off 2021, brand new seamless texture images are waiting for you on these pages: TXR – Ground – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-ground-cartoon/ TXR – Metal – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-metal-cartoon/ TXR – Rock/Stone – Cartoon https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-cartoon/ The images aren’t necessarily “cartoony” but are more graphical and less realistic than my other images. NEWS For those of you using my music tracks, my History page now has Ogg versions of my tracks on it. Ogg tracks have several advantages over MP3 tracks: -They loop better in game engines (MP3 tracks sometimes need to be edited.) -They sound amazing…almost as good as the original WAV tracks while being much smaller in size. -They are a cool way to support my efforts. Give them a try! In the meantime, if you find my free assets helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts. Have a good week!

You’ll see a button near the top of the page if a music pack is available. Presently, music packs are available for the following pages: Action 1 Chiptunes 1-3 Fantasy 1-10 Dark/Ominous Horror / Surreal Looping Music Puzzle Music 1-5 Sci-Fi / Space If you find my work helpful, please consider making a small donation on my website to help support my efforts.
