What is the GameBurp '2000 Game Sound FX Collection'?

The 2000 Sound FX Collection is a high quality sound effects library collection specifically designed for use in games and apps, so if you’re an indie game or app developer this is exactly for you! In the collection you'll get 2000 sound effects files organised into 30 wide ranging category folders. They cover a huge range of game and app types, anything from - puzzle, word, kids, educational, arcade, retro, action, adventure, platformers, shoot-em-ups, and so on. A huge diverse range for any game genre. They are also great for use in other mediums like videos, animations, film, motion graphics, podcasts and radio.

How were the sounds developed and made?

All sound effects are made from 100% originally recorded sounds and raw wave forms. A massive amount of sound sources were recorded over the last year and a half on a series of various condenser and field recording microphones. These recordings then go through a process of audio clean up and isolating. Thousands of raw sounds are then layered together, time/pitch manipulated and processed to create a massive array of sounds. These are then categorised, named, and mastered. Several hundred hours have been invested in the creation, processing, designing and development of this sound effects collection, saving you a massive amount of time and effort you can reinvest into other aspects of your development.

What audio file format do the sounds come in?

All sound effects file are supplied to you in high quality stereo WAV 44.1kHz, 16-bit files. You also get the same files in OGG compressed audio format for your convenience should you need them. Any other audio file format can be easily made from the high quality uncompressed WAV files giving you full flexibility.
