    Hi everyone,

    I've created over 2000 tracks of music and sound effects as well as thousands of images that you and your students are welcome to use in projects, presentations and pretty much anything else you can think of. All I ask is to be attributed as explained on my website:

    http://soundimage.org/

    I sincerely hope some of my work is helpful. If you happen to use any of my assets, please feel free to share your projects...I love to see how creative people are using my work! :)

    I finally reached 2000 tracks last week…woo hoo! Not too bad considering I started the site with 100 tracks.

    Anyhow, I’m a bit under the weather this week…(back probs…ugh)…but I did manage to create a few new music tracks for everyone…free to use with attribution:

    On my Fantasy 10 page:

    FARAWAY WORLDS CALLING – (Looping) – Ready to go?

    https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/

    On my Chiptunes 3 page:

    ARCADE GOBLINS – (Looping) – Running around Pixeltown, causing chaos. I’d love to hear this in a 2D arcade-style game. Fun stuff!
    https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-3/

    And on my Nature / Science 3 page:

    EXPEDITION NORTH – (Looping) – Embarking for the frozen wilderness. This track might sound nice under the title screens of an adventure game or video.

    https://soundimage.org/nature-science-3/

    In case you’re wondering, attribution information is here:

    https://soundimage.org/attribution-info/

    If you happen to use some of my assets in your projects, please feel free to share (if you wish.) I love to see how creative people are using my work!

    You can use my assets for all kinds of things. For example, students can use my music in video essays, in-school news shows, presentations and even video game creation. The same goes for my images. Everything is free to use with attribution...and I think it's good to teach students early on to give proper credit. :)

    Hi folks, I’m continuing to upload Ogg versions of my music tracks onto Gumroad. While the free MP3 files on my website sound very good, the Ogg files sound absolutely amazing…almost as good as the original WAV files from which they were derived (but much, much smaller in size.) They're great for software and website development where smaller file size is necessary and are a cool way to help support my work. Tracks that have Ogg versions available have an "Ogg" button under them...simply click on it. Enjoy...and please feel free to share your projects if you wish...I love to see how creative people are using my work! :)

    Big news, guys! All of my tracks on my Dark/Ominous page are now available as very high quality Ogg files. They sound amazing…almost as good as the original WAV files that they were created from…and are much much smaller in size…perfect for videogames. Give them a try.

    https://soundimage.org/dark-ominous/

    On that note, some people have asked me why I’m offering Ogg files when they can simply convert my free MP3 tracks to Ogg themselves. You are certainly welcome to do this, but it won’t increase the quality of the tracks at all because you’re starting with MP3. The reason my Ogg files sound so great is that I’m creating them from my original WAV recordings.

    That said, this week’s new free tracks are:

    On my Fantasy 10 page:

    SKY DRIFTERS – (Looping)

    SKY DRIFTERS 2 – (Looping)

    https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/

    On my Positive / Upbeat page:

    THE BALLOON HEADS DAY OUT – (Looping)

    https://soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/

    On my Puzzle Music 5 page:

    FUNKY PUZZLER – (Looping)

    https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-5/

    And on my Sci-Fi 8 page:

    DESOLATE STREETS IN A MACHINE WORLD – (Looping)

    ELECTRIC DRIZZLE – (Looping)

    https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-8/

    Enjoy…and keep being creative!

    More people have been reaching out to me about my Ogg music tracks. Please know that I’m in the process of creating them and uploading them to Gumroad, but it’s taking time since there are over 2000 tracks on my site. If you want an Ogg version of a track that isn’t available yet, just email me and I’ll be happy to create it for you and put it on Gumroad.

    Stay safe and healthy.

    A Request to Everyone:

    If you can, please consider making a small donation on my website to support my work. The synthesizers I use to create free music for everyone are very expensive (2 Korgs and a Yamaha.) I actually have to make monthly payments on them and donations from the creative community really help me a lot to pay for them. Thanks in advance. :)

    That said, I managed to get some new tracks done for everyone. Free to use, of course, with attribution:

    On my Fantasy 10 page:
    DESERT MYSTERY – (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/fantasy-10/

    On my Sci-Fi 9 page:
    BLAST OFF – (Looping)
    https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-9/

    And on my Events/Travel 2 page:
    COUNTRY CELEBRATION
    https://soundimage.org/events-travel-2/

    Be well and stay healthy.
