Game sounds and game effects tuts (For game devs)

Helicopter sound

Okay. Sorry for the long delay in tuts.
Today, we shall make a helicopter sound.
This one was highly requested, by game devs.
And we'll be using, the nescaline plugin again.
But it could be used, for non 8 bit games too. Ha! Ha! :D

So here we go. :D


1) First off, we bring in our fav Lmms' plugin nescaline.

Image


-----------------------------------------------------------


2) We only want CH 4 on, just like in the pic below.
Image


-----------------------------------------------------------


3) Now lets go to the CH 4's Freq dial.
It's this one on the right side of the VOL dial.
Image

Now lets turn it to......

Freq = 4 or 5


----------------------------------------------------


4) Now lets head over to the LEN and SWP dials.
Image
We want both of these dials turned to zero.

LEN = 0
SWP = 0


-----------------------------------------------------


5) Now look for the ENV,... Infinite and Q buttons.
Image

We only want the ENV and Infinite buttons on.
Red, means they are on.
Black, means they are off.

So turn both the ENV and Infinite buttons on.
And leave the Q option off.
Just like in the pic below.
Image


-----------------------------------------------------


6) Now press and hold, any PC keyboard key, or any key on your piano keyboard.
It sounds like a helicopter is coming.

Use it in your games and have tons of fun. :D
Or as Arnold would say,........"GET TO THE CHOPPER!!" 8-)
Lol!


-----------------------------------------------------

More tuts coming soon.
Don't forget to check the first page, for the Table of Contents. :)
Nice Full sounding Bass Drop

Yep. Guess you didn't know I was going to make tut's, using the Nescaline synth. Ha! Ha! :)
It's Nescaline time again! 8-)


1) Open Nescaline, by dragging it into Lmms. :)
This is a pic of what nescaline looks like.
Image
Yep. It looks like an old school Nintendo game console, from back in the 80's. 8-)


------------------------------------------------


2) Do you see the small red rectangle lights, next to the words CH 2, CH 3 and CH 4?
Press on them to take them off. Once it turns black, it means each channel is off.
Image
You'll notice in this pic, only CH 1 has a red light.
Only CH 1 should have a red light on. And all of the others CH 2, CH 3, CH 4
should be off. (black colour)

In other words:
red = on
black colour = off


-----------------------------------------------


3) Now lets go to CH 1 also known as Channel 1.
You'll see the words VOL, CRS, LEN
Image
We want these dials turned to these numbers.

VOL = 15
CRS = 0
LEN = 0


----------------------------------------------


4) Look for the word WIDTH. This is a pic of it.
Image
You will notice that there are 4 blocks under the word WIDTH. And the 1st block is red.

Now press on the 3rd block. When you press it, it will look like the pic below.
Image

Now that we have the good ol' 3rd block selected, we can make our sound.


-----------------------------------------------


5) Look for the words, ENV, infinite loop symbol and sweep, at the top.
Image
You'll notice, that they are all off. (Black in colour.)

We want the Sweep option on. Because it will help make our drop sound.
So press the small rectangle next to the word Sweep, to turn it on.
Red colour means Sweep option is on.
Image


-----------------------------------------------


6) Now lets head to the Amt and Rate dials.
Image
These two dials will help the Sweep option, make our sound descend.
So we shall turn each of them, to a specific number. :)

AMT = -3
RATE = 3


-----------------------------------------------


7) Press and hold the C3 key, on your piano.
Or if you're using a PC keyboard, press and hold the Z key.

You'll hear the Dooooooosh! Sound. Lol! :lol:

Now play around and press and hold keys below, above, or between C2 to C3.

Have fun with this one, game designer dudes/dudettes. :D


More game sound tuts are coming soon.

Image
Like in the previous tuts, we want these dials turned to these numbers.
(Note: these numbers are already set by default)

VOL = 15
CRS = 0
LEN = 0


----------------------------------------------


4) Again, we look for the word WIDTH. :)
Image
You will notice that there are 4 blocks under the word WIDTH. And the 1st block is red.

-----------------------------------------------


6) Lets head to the Amt and Rate dials.
Image
These two special dials, will help make our sound.
We shall turn the dials, to these numbers. :)

AMT = -3
RATE = 2


Now press hold the A4 key on your piano, or the Y key, on your PC keyboard.
Interesting sound huh?

But, it does not sound like a bouncing ping pongy sound.
Well, we have one more dial to turn. :)

-----------------------------------------------


7) Now for the fun part. :D
Lets turn the LEN dial. This dial is very special.

LEN, stands for envelope length.
With the help of those 3 options, we turned on in Step 5, this LEN dial, will literally help
make any sound we make in nescaline, multiply, or repeat in succession.
In other words, it'll help give us the repeating, bouncy sounding ping pong effect. 8-)

Image

LEN = 2

And that's it. :D
-----------------------------------------------


8) Now Press and hold the A4 key, on your piano.
Or if you're using a PC keyboard, press and hold the Y key.
And that's our bouncy ping pongy sound.

Now play around and press hold any key you like.
Hold any key for a short time, hold it for a long time and enjoy the fun.

Have fun dudes. And see you for my next tut. 8-)
Pulsating energy field door

Okay guys. This week, I bring to you another cool super short tut, to start off this week. :)
Today, we make a Pulsating energy field door sound, 8 bit style using nescaline.
But it could be used for non 8 bit games too. Ha! Ha! :D
You know, those force field type barrier doors, seen in alot of video games, where you have to
find a switch to turn it off, so you can go to the next room/level? Yep. That type of door. :)

So here we go. :D

1) First off, we bring in our fav Lmms' plugin nescaline.

Image


-----------------------------------------------------------


2) We only want CH 4 on, just like in the pic below.

-----------------------------------------------------------



3) Now lets find CH 4's Freq dial. It's on the right side of the VOL dial.
Now lets turn it. :D
Image
Freq = 3


----------------------------------------------------


4) Now lets head over to the right hand side of CH 4.
Do you see the word MODE?
Image

Once you find the word MODE, press on the small black rectangle, to turn it on.
A red rectangle, means it is on.
Image


----------------------------------------------------


5) Now press and hold, any PC keyboard key, or any key on your piano keyboard.
You'll hear a pulsating noise sound, that sounds like a Pulsating energy field door. :)
This sound is good to use for Sci Fi games. Use it in your games and have tons of fun. :D
