And here are simple demos:

Created with Virus TI synthesizer

Virus Ti is arguably one of the most advanced hardware synthesizer. It was used for designing the sounds in this sample pack. I used my experience with creating chip tunes and chip tune sounds. Therefore I tried to mimic chiptune techniques when creating the sounds.

Recording

The sounds have been recorded from the synthesizer. And then prepared in a form of samples. I tried to keep them as natural as possible. Sorry, as pixelated as possible 😉

Testing within game soundtrack

Although sounds may sound well when played out of any context, it’s better to try them within specific game situation. That is what is done. So sometimes it was required to improve the sound.

Final rendering and selection

If sounds pass the tests succesfully, it’s time to render them finally. Usually there are more effects and not all of them are worth being included in a sample pack. The most interesting are selected. To keep the high quality and variety at the same time.

Support

If you like and use my stuff, you can support me by buying my sample set of chiptune drums and percussion.
