Happy February Everyone,

This week I have a cool new sci-fi track, some quirky chiptunes tracks and a nice fantasy track. All are free to use with attribution:

On my Sci-Fi 10 page:

“CYBERPUNK CITY GAME MENU” – (Looping) – Kind of a dreamy/techno/slightly ominous feel.

“INKY AND BLINKY’S R&B BAND” – (Looping)
“INKY AND BLINKY’S R&B BAND_V001” – (Standard and Looping)

You didn’t know that they’re famous R&B musicians? How do you think they keep themselves occupied when nobody’s playing PacMan?  ;-)

https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/

And on my Fantasy 1 page:

“IMAGINARY PLACES” – (Looping) – Perhaps for the intro to a fantasy game?

Hi everyone,

For this week, I’ve created some cool creepy music tracks that might be helpful. Free to use with attribution:

On my Fantasy 11 page:

“SCARY THINGS AHEAD”
“SCARY THINGS AHEAD 2”
https://soundimage.org/fantasy-11/

On my Horror 2 page:

“SURREALIZATION”
https://soundimage.org/horror-2/

And a wild chiptunes-style track on my Chiptunes 4 page:

“WILD RIDE THROUGH TOKYO” – (Looping)
https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-4/

NEWS

It’s great to see that people are beginning to download my Ogg music packs…I’m so glad they’re helpful! Personally, I think they’re a really good value…you get all of the Ogg tracks from any given page on my site (usually around 20) for the same price as purchasing 3 tracks individually. Check them out!

The MP3 versions, as always, are completely free.

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)

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.
