This is a unique sound library in the sense that we recreated the most iconic retro videogame sounds of the 70s and 80s using top-of-the-line analog modular synthesizers.
Not only does this library capture the sound of retro video games, but it does it with a contemporary spirit due to the high-end analog audio equipment used in the production.
As a bonus, this library includes all the sounds in three additional editions, each processed to emulate a different videogame hardware speaker system from the vintage gaming era. Apart from the original edition, the three extra editions emulate the sound through:
- A famous handheld console.
- A popular gaming (at the time) desktop computer.
- The first-ever video game console that used ROM cartridges.
The sounds of this library are organized into 14 categories: Alarms, Appear, Death, Destruction, Energy, Hit, Jump, Magic, Pick Up, Power Up, Step, User Interface, Vehicles, and Weapons.
That doesn't mean that the sounds contained in one category cannot be used for other categories or even types of events that are not included in the organization of this library. Many sounds of the era were used for different events in different games, giving those games their unique style. Also, you can mix and match sounds between the different emulation editions to achieve the retro aesthetic your project needs.
This is one of our most popular sound libraries, preferred by creators worldwide for over 12 years. This library’s supreme vintage sound and high fidelity are what our users love.
Apart from using this library for vintage video games, the nature of those sounds makes them perfect for other uses, such as user interface sounds, alerts, or layered together with other sounds to create sci-fi and futuristic sounds for robotics, weapon systems, or electronic equipment.
Music producers and composers can also use this library to add the retro feeling of the 70s and 80s into their music. Use the sounds of this library with samplers or drum machines to create new instruments, or layer them on top of other instruments to create unique new sounds.
