Item get! 2013-02-16 18:32:23 Reply

I didn't really know where to post this topic and so I just went here with it, I hope that's right.

Anyway, I'm looking for a sound effect for a game I'm making, it's a sound that plays when the player picks up an item sort of like a very short, happy little melody. A bit like this.
I make games in a pixely/retro style and normally I use the excellent program BFXR to generate 8bit sound effects, but it can't seem to get this one right, so I was thinking maybe some of you out there could be of more help. Preferably it needs to be royality free too.

So, anyone?

Maybe I'm lazy but I don't think I want to teach myself FL Studio just to get one little sound effect.

it would be handy for you in the future if you did. But otherwise, I really don't know how you're gonna do it unless you ask someone nicely to make it for you

I suppose it would be handy, but I just want to wrap this game up and get it out...

Wow, thank you.
But - and I feel really shitty saying this - it doesn't fit exactly what I had in mind, I imagined something a bit simpler like just a one layer 'doo-doo-doooo' sound(I'm sorry if I'm using too many advanced technical terms here).

'doo-doo-doooo' isn't a too advanced term for me.

I made some more versions of the song you can choose from.

original
simpler
even simpler
even simpler without the digital distortion effect

Thanks a bunch for doing these, that's really cool of you. I'm going to go for the even simpler one without distortion.
Thanks, I think we can let this topic die now.

Wow. The last one is literally just skipping up a Ionian scale or something with a square?

But the original is actually pretty sweet. Props to you.

Yes, that's basically it. I think if you narrow down a song enough you always end up with something simplistic. Just like physicists try to capture complex natural phenomena in a formula that is as simple as can be.

Also I didn't feel this song should be too complex, to make it easier recognizable for what it is. Like an icon on a traffic sign.

Good luck with the game. Let me know when you're done, I'd love to see it.
