    Greetings!

    I’ve had a number of requests for uncompressed versions of my tracks, so I’ve begun making them available on Gumroad for a small free to help support the site. The MP3 files that I make freely available sound very good, but the original uncompressed WAV files sound really incredible…give them a try!

    If anyone is curious as to why I didn’t upload WAV files to begin with, the reason is that my web hosting service places limitations on file sizes and WAV files tend to be very large.

    Anyhow, it’s going to take some time to upload everything, so if anyone has any requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, just drop me an email and I’ll upload them to Gumroad for you. Feel free to convert to Ogg or any format you like.

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

    On my Sci-Fi 8 page:

    EMERGING ALIEN CIVILIZATIONS – (Looping) – As they become industrialized, hopefully they won’t make the same mistakes we have.

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

    And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page, more large city street ambience:

    STREET CORNER_M-30 – Traffic, distant sirens, pedestrians, someone whistles, trucks passing, talking, horns, etc.
    STREET CORNER_M30_2 – Noisy traffic passes, pedestrians, talking, distant brakes squeak, etc.

    https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/

    Enjoy!

    Well, WAV files proved too large to upload onto Gumroad in any reasonable amount of time (we’re talking 1900+ tracks) so I’m uploading Ogg files instead. I’ve started with my Fantasy page. They sound really great…give them a try!

    Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for WAV versions of tracks you happen to like, feel free to contact me.

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

    On my Action 3 page:

    WILD WEST COAST RACING 8 – (Looping) – Here’s another one that features a blues-y chord progression (in the C and D sections) giving it a very subtle humorous feel.

    https://soundimage.org/action-3/

    On my Puzzle Music 4 page:

    PUZZLE JOURNEYS – (Looping) – Maybe for some kind of futuristic puzzle game…or perhaps something else.

    https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/

    And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page:

    STREET CORNER_P-29 – Traffic, people talking, distant brakes squeaking, construction, bicycle passes.

    STREET CORNER_P-29_2 – Less traffic. Pedestrians talking, cars beep, bicycle passes, distant horns, truck pulls up, air brakes from truck, subway heard underground coming into station, another subway passes underground, distant helicopter.

    STREET CORNER_P30 – Traffic passes, people pass on sidewalk, car horn, etc.

    I hope some of my work is helpful!

    OGG MUSIC UPDATE:

    Super high-quality Ogg files are now available for every track on my Fantasy 1 page as well as my Sci-Fi/Space page. And for about half of the tracks on my Looping Music page and my Horror/Surreal page. They sound amazing…almost as good as uncompressed WAV files…give them a try if they work in your projects.

    Meanwhile, if anyone has requests for Ogg versions of tracks that you happen to like but aren’t on the site yet, just let me know and I’ll be happy to upload them for you.

    That said, I have a couple of band new free tracks ready:

    On my Funny 6 page:
    SEWER SHENANIGANS – (Looping) – Maybe for humorous monsters underground…or funny criminals up to who-knows-what down there.
    https://soundimage.org/funny-6/

    On my Puzzle Music 4 page:
    CYBER LIGHT CHASE – (Looping) – Perhaps for a faster-paced puzzle game? Or maybe something else?
    https://soundimage.org/puzzle-music-4/

    Enjoy!

    As Halloween approaches, I thought I’d focus this month on creating new tracks that might be useful in Halloween-themed projects (or horror, etc.)

    That said, all of this week’s new tracks are on my Horror/Surreal Page:

    SHATTERED MIND – Surreal and disturbing, this could be used in all kinds of nightmarish things I’m sure. Easy to loop as well.

    WELCOME TO THE MANSION – A haunted mansion that is. Muah hah hah!

    SHATTERED REALITY – Another surrealistic piece. Might sound cool in a sci-fi project, too.

    https://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/

    All of my tracks are 100% free to use with attribution. Enjoy!

    Happy Thursday!

    Here are this week’s new tracks…100% free to use with attribution:

    “MYSTICAL HIGHLANDS” – (Looping) – Perhaps atop faraway mountains where the clouds drift below you. Or maybe in the quiet alleyways of an ancient city.
    https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/

    Here are a couple new music tracks that might work for Halloween projects…or perhaps other things:

    "CREEPY HOLLOW" - Will you venture into the mist-filled forest? This track loops easily, btw.
    https://soundimage.org/dark-ominous-2/

    “THE ATTIC OF SECRETS” – (Looping) – A dark, drafty place filled with long-forgotten things. What will you find?
    https://soundimage.org/fantasy-9/

    Have a good weekend…and keep being creative!

    Great music as always, Mr. Matyas. I just had to say- "The Attic of Secrets" reminds me heavily of the music of the 80s Ghostbusters cartoon- was that an inspiration? It's very close, and I couldn't resist asking.

    Thanks! And no, I never actually watched the cartoon so it's just a coincidence. :)
