pain/grunts sounds for game - mussash6 - Mar 26, 2007 01:52 PM

I hope I'm posting in the right place... I'm looking for a source for sounds for characters in game, like grunts, pain and death sounds (male and female). Might anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Er...what kind of game is this?

Heh, maybe if I'm bored tomorrow at lunch I'll make a bunch of these. However, my mic isn't very good. (ie built-in eMac mic, which really isn't too bad, considering.)

Here are links to a couple of royalty-free sound effect sites that I use a lot. The prices are pretty reasonable, and they have wide selections of sounds.

Sound Rangers:

AudioSparx has the best selection, but there are a couple of things you need to watch out for. It is setup to allow various sound effect creators to sell their sounds, so you need to pay attention to who you purchase from and what their license is (whether you are allowed to redistribute the sounds with your game/product, how you're allowed to use the sounds, etc). You should also be careful, because some of the sellers blatantly rip sounds from TV shows and other copyrighted material, and then try to sell it on this site - you can usually tell, though, from the audio quality.

I just went to the audiosparx website. There are a number of good sound effects there. I couldn't figure out from your post how you learn what is copyrighted. I went to the info screen, which told me who had done the sounds, but there was no more information on them other than additional sounds they had available there. If I use something like a dog sound, for example, and there is no further information about royalty free or copyright on the information page, can I assume it's okay to use? Thanks

I looked at the AudioSparx website. How do you tell if sounds are copyrighted or not, if they don't say? Some are obviously, but others may be but don't give any information. If there is no note of copyright, and they don't seem to be blatant- like from a tv show, would you say it's okay to use them? Thanks.

This sounds like a contest theme!

Sorry about that, I've been away from this site for awhile.

I visited the AudioSparx web site today, and the site layout has changed since I last used it. I had to do some digging before I found it.

Previously, each artist/contributor had their own copyright notice on their sound effects, but that has changed. AudioSparx has one blanket notice now, and it is available under the License link at the top of each of the web site pages (

Hope that helps.

You may want to try Their license is very clear and they don't have any illegal sounds to wade through. I find their library easier to use and their terms much simpler to understand.
