I'm a college student and indie developer bent on gaining the skills I need to make my dream games a reality. School was not doing much for me so I decided to teach myself, and so far I'm learning a lot more this way. Check out everything I do at www.yotesgames.com

Report article RSS Feed Make 8-Bit Sounds on Bfxr.net!

Posted by TonyYotes on Feb 13th, 2014

     This is on the top 20 list of most awesome things I have ever discovered. For those like me who didn't know, there is a website where you can create unique/randomized chiptune sound effects for free and download them to your computer. Perfect for 8-bit / Atari style games like this. This is an excellent tool for making audio in my next project. Just yesterday I decided to make it have stylized 8-Bit graphics and now I know about this thanks to Versimer on deviantART!

     One of my favorite things about it is the preset list on the side that randomly produces a sound that always resembles what the button says. Really, click the Pickup/Coin button 100 times and it will always sound different. You can then tweak whatever sound you have until it sounds pitch-perfect. There's even a chaotic Randomize button that you'll need to experience for yourself. I can't wait to play around with it more when I start my next project. So back to work on my current one for now!
