Thanks to Muttley for posting this on YakYak.

A proper old school sound FX generator.  Just hitting the Randomise button throws up all sorts of nostalgia inducing sounds.

Yeah it's nice.  I'd just run the any SFX you generate through something like Goldwave to tidy it up a bit and tweak it if necessary.

Yeh, the link was also posted on Gamedev.net.

Takes me right back to when i used to create my own sfx by a similar method on the c64, randomly setting the adsr filters on the sid chip.

Great stuff.

Oh yeah happy days playing with the sid chip.  People always talk fondly of the music generated but the old sid but you don't really get sound FX like that anymore either.  Everything tends to be a bit generic and then when you try something a bit different like the Yak's Space Giraffe, you get slated for it.

I've been using sfxr for all my 1982 sound fx and I see there is an online version now.

Excellent retro flavoured stuff.

Found a new sound effects generator.

Seems pretty good, except it doesnt seem to have a generate random sfx function.

It's a free download of about 1mb in size.

Worth grabbing it while you can.

And this is a fun text to speech utility.

Nice find.

Wish I'd seen that speech synth before I did everything for 1982 as it's much easier than using Fruityloops.

Whilst browsing Tigsource i saw two new free sfx utilities.

Labchirp
http://labbed.net/software.php?id=labchirp

A lot like Sfxr to use but produces more modern sounding sfx.

And an updated browser based version of Sfxr here at

Bfxr
http://www.bfxr.net/

Thought they were worth posting about for future reference.

Yeah I haven't seen that Labchirp before either.  Just listened to the demo sounds and it's great.

Nice find Smiley
