    [ASSETS] A new site with royalty free music and soundscapes for your games

    Hi everyone,

    I've created approximately 1400 tracks of music and sound effects that you can freely use in commercial projects, personal ones or anything you like. It's all original...all my own work. All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage:

    www.soundimage.org


    I sincerely hope my tracks are helpful. Any and all feedback is welcome and always appreciated.

    All the best,

    Eric

      For Commercial Projects

      For projects intended to make money, please contact me for a license. They are generally only a few dollars and help me pay for this site.

        Hi everyone,

        I've updated and simplified the pricing structure:

        Free for noncommercial use.
        $5/track for commercial use.

        This saves the step of having to contact me. It was suggested by a forum member.

        I hope you find my music helpful. As always, all feedback is welcome and appreciated.

        Thanks,
        Eric

              I've got a new site up with royalty free music and soundscapes for games, films, websites or anything you can think of using it for. It's all my own stuff.
              You really should change the thread title. Saying royalty free music is misleading to many people. It should say, royalty free music and soundscapes for "Non Commercial use only". I wish you all the best and good luck...

                The title is fine and well in the standard definition of use.

                look under photography.

                  Photography. Are you serious? From the same site you posted.

                  "Royalty-free, or RF, refers to the right to use copyrighted material or intellectual property without the need to pay royalties or license fees for each use or per volume sold, or some time period of use or sales."
                  Be it $1 or $100. You are paying royalties to the creator. Saying royalty free is just that "Royalty Free"

                    No, if you pay $1 one time, you're paying a one time license fee. Not a royalty. A royalty by definition(including your definition) is when a fee is applied based in number of units sold or released(sometimes time limited).

                    Things can, and often do, have a licensing fee, but not a royalty fee, and saying they're royalty free is accurate.

                    It's not misleading at all, but I'd agree that a good number of people don't know what a royalty is.

                      I'm pretty sure most people take royalty-free to mean: pay once to use it, and you don't have to worry about additional license issues.

                      E.g. most royalty-free music libraries let you download tracks for a one-time all-inclusive 'purchase' fee, which you can then use in your project without having to buy a specific license. Despite the name, the composer usually receives royalties anyway, since if the work is aired on tv/youtube then the broadcaster has to pay performacne royalties via a distribution body such as the PRS.

                        You make a very good point. I stand corrected. All the best ...

                          The newest of the new tracks are on the following pages:

                          If you decide to use one or more of my pieces, a donation would be greatly appreciated...any amount you can swing would be helpful.
                          As always, thanks for your feedback and I hope you find something you can use.

                            Hi everyone,

                            It was brought to my attention that pretty much any music on my site could potentially be game music...(not just the music on the "Fantasy/Game Music" page)...so I've gone ahead and renamed that page "Fantasy." None of the pieces have moved, though...everything is still in the same place.

                            That said, I have some new tracks for you on the Fantasy page as well as the Drama and Upbeat pages.

                            I hope they are helpful,

                            Eric

                              Sci-Fi/Space

                              Hope they are helpful,
