Greetings Fellow Creatives!

In less than a month, it will be 10 years that I've been sharing my music with the community.  Wow, time goes by fast...it's hard to believe!

Anyhow, this week, we have a couple of new tracks I created with my new keyboard synth. They are:

On my Fantasy 12  page:

"CONTEMPLATION IN THE CASTLE"
https://soundimage.org/fantasy-12/

On my Sci-Fi 12 page:

"THE LANDING"
https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-12/

As always, they are 100% free to use with attribution, like my thousands of other tracks.

If you can, please consider making a small donation on my site. The keyboard synths I use are very expensive (I make monthly payments on them) and donations really help a lot. You can help out here:

https://soundimage.org/donate/

My Ogg Music Packs are another great way to help:

Thanks in advance and keep creating!  :-)

Happy New Year Everyone!  :-D

To kick off the new year, I've uploaded a couple of brand new tracks on my Chiptunes 5 page:

"SPIFF SPACELY"
"PIXEL CHA-CHA"
https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-5/

OTHER NEWS:

I'm considering replacing all of my MP3 tracks with WAV tracks since the quality is higher.  I know the file size of WAV files is very large, (especially for game developers,) but you could convert them to whatever format you like, like Ogg, Flac, etc.  Anyhow, I'm trying it on my Fantasy 1 page. If anyone is interested, feel free to give them a try and let me know what you think.

I'm also working with a new keyboard synthesizer which is a beast but should open up a whole new world of sound creation.

Stay tuned, stay safe...and, as always, keep being creative!

"STRANDED IN THE OUTER RIM"_LoFi
"CIRCUIT PUNK GAME MENU"_LoFi
"ALIEN COLOSSEUM"_LoFi

OGG vs. MP3 TRACKS

For those of you who need looping tracks, I would highly recommend using the Ogg versions of my tracks. Besides sounding richer, Ogg tracks loop better in game engines. The reason for this is that the MP3 encoding process sometimes discards a tiny amount of audio information at the looping point. This causes a noticeable audio gap when the track loops. Mp3 encoding  doesn't do this every single time, but it does it enough to be annoying.  Ogg encoding doesn't discard any audio information so tracks always loop seamlessly.

In terms of audio quality, the MP3 versions of my tracks do sound very good...that's because the synthesizers I use are all top-of-the-line and produce very high quality sound.  Still, the Ogg versions sound even better...almost as good as the original WAV recordings right out of my synths...but are much smaller in file size.  WAV files are enormous.

My recommendation is to use my MP3 tracks as placeholders and then replace them with my Ogg tracks once you've decided which music you want to use.

My premium Ogg music packs  are here:
https://soundimage.org/ogg-music-packs-2/

You can also search for individual Ogg tracks on my Gumroad page.  When doing so, make sure to include  _ogg  after each title because that's how the tracks are named.

Have a good week!  :-)
