Sound for all

I'm not really a sound person, I know nothing of it. I liked fruity loops when it first came out but that's it. Like so many children the recorder was forced upon me when I was very young ... perhaps these things are related.

But games need sounds!

That's why Dr Petter's sounds effects tool is so awesome. You press one button and it makes a sound. If you like the sound you save it. That's the kind of program and user instructions I can throw my weight behind. It's name is the somewhat unwieldy 'sfxr'.

I only wish there was a little more variety. It seems to be based on what the NES sound hardware can produce - or some similar system. Still very good gamey sounds for very little effort. Thumbs up!
