Game masters and players of TTRPGs and LARPGs can now create a believable ambience of professional quality using an intuitive and very easy map editor. Transform your game room into an immersive entertainment space, stream live online, or export the sounds and use them with your favorite VTT platform or mobile player.
Discover a new way to create any ambience to match your campaigns, using an intuitive map editor and preset layers.
Echotopia goes beyond your typical ambience generator. Echotopia is a soundscape designer. And yet, Echotopia is easier to use and faster to create sound. This is because of Echotopia’s real-time acoustics simulation engine, which spreads the sound naturally upon your map.
Let your players enjoy the adventure from any point on the map, with natural believable sound.
Check the video to see how easy is to create a realistic medieval village soundscape.
Don’t stay locked on old soundscape generators that make you choose one preset for a location, Echotopia’s revolutionary philosophy allows you to position your sounds on top of your maps freely and automatically calculates how everything around your explorers should sound in real-time.
Your players can explore each corner of your world and they will hear how that corner should sound immediately.
With the automatic calculation of distance, reverberation, and occlusion from walls, you can create hidden places and allow revealing sound cues if the players pass outside that hidden place. Try it, you’ll never go back!
We built Echotopia’s audio engine with storytellers and physical places in our minds.
Echotopia takes advantage of all your soundcard’s outputs in a unique way, unlike the classic surround setup which is made for people looking at a screen.
Use all your available outputs and speakers (up to eight channels currently) to set up sound curtains, sound fountains, and hidden corners that emit sound, transforming your game room (or living room) into an enchanted space to host your game sessions.
Echotopia’s real-time acoustics simulation can surround your players even using two speakers from a typical stereo setup.
Echotopia will automatically up-mix or down-mix any sound files you import and take advantage of your system’s available channels. Immersive audio without the hustle.
Use Echotopia’s audio engine an intuitive tools to design your world’s soundscapes and then export them to use in other applications.
Populate your VTT platform of choice with realistic soundscapes that fit with the aesthetics of your story or use them in video editors and streaming applications to accompany your storytelling no matter which platform or authoring application you prefer.
Our mission is to bridge the chasm between storytelling enthusiasts and professional content creators, by making Echotopia the defacto application for soundscape design.
From the Echotopia Storyteller Edition and up, together with Echotopia, you get the full collection of SoundFellas sound libraries.
Tenths of thousands of special sound effects, Foley, evolving drones, particle micro-sounds, and music loops are all at your fingertips.
Plus complete Ambience Kits and Production Music collections to help you create thematic soundscapes or combine for hybrid styles like Steampunk or Cthulhu.
We also update our collections regularly and if you can’t find a sound you need you can submit your content requests in our Community Forum.
We believe that sharing boosts the joy of creativity, so we made Echotopia’s projects completely self-contained and portable!
When you create your worlds you can send the project to anybody and it can be opened by Echotopia without any extra work.
Share your creations with your friends or community and work together for the perfect campaign.
If you are a professional producer of content for storytellers you can include an Echotopia project with your products and enhance them with the added value of immersive audio.
The Storyteller, Creator, and Producer editions of Echotopia come with all our royalty-free curated sound libraries.
Currently containing more than 38.000 original sounds, made with great care. All the new sound libraries we publish, you get them for free until the next major update of Echotopia.

First of all, you should know that all editions contain the Echotopia editor application with all features. The only difference is the content that comes together. And actually, all editions with content do include all our curated sound libraries (currently more than 38000 sounds of every type and genre), and the only difference between them is the format and resolution of the files and the channel formats available (stereo, surround, ambisonic).
As a good practice, you should download the free trial edition to test Echotopia in your setup.
Then choose an edition according to your needs:
Each edition also includes the sound libraries and formats of the lower editions, so you don’t have to convert anything for lower-resolution needs. We took care of this for you using our state-of-the-art mastering pipeline.
Sure you can!
We understand that creative projects cannot happen in a vacuum and creators use a variety of tools and platforms to achieve the desired outcome.
Therefore we offer the sound content that comes together with the Echotopia editor in common formats that any other application can open.
You can import them into video editors, game engines, music instruments, and any other application or platform you like.
You can use the content to create videogames, movies, VR experiences, toys, interactive experiences, installations, music productions, tutorials, streaming shows, audio/radio dramas, and more.
We only forbid the use of the content for the creation of other software, tools, music instruments, and other soundware that would be a conflict of interest between us and you the creator. You also cannot use, distribute, or broadcast our content as isolated ambience loops and soundscapes or isolated elements in the form of content libraries, music albums, or streaming content for use as standalone audio or within an audio player.

It all started when we decided not to make Echotopia a subscription-based product, but at the same time to offer our huge collection of royalty-free sound libraries with it.
We needed to find the best solution so that the user will not need to download hundreds of gigabytes in one go, and simultaneously use a service that doesn’t charge us per month. That way, Echotopia could remain a subscription-free product, just the way we like it.
The only way to do this was to create an online place where the user can browse all the content and choose what is needed and to put a limit on the times that each package can be downloaded.
A happy outcome of this philosophy is that this is also a green and eco-friendly way to manage downloads in general, as the user downloads only the needed assets. This minimizes the carbon footprint a lot, in contrast with other vendors that dump you a dropbox archive with unedited terabytes for you to download.
We fight against the mindless digital hoarding disorder that is menacing the internet, and we support mindful creators that care for more than themselves.
To save resources you should always back up the original downloads to a second hard drive, and never work on the original files.
