Microsoft Research helps you design a sound plan for your game: SongSmith


Hey Yo, games with no music in the background are boring.  No sound effects: Boring.  But you are just a poor student or hobbyist, and you don’t have any cash to get access to an expensive sound effects library.  And when I say expensive, I mean anything that costs cash. 

So if it is eats or sound effects, what are you going to do?  SongSmith.   Now I am not saying you the $29.95 for the full copy of SongSmith, isn’t definitely worth it.  But you can get the SongSmith by taking a class at a school with an MSDNAA subscription, and that way you learn about programming as well.  Two for one.

Ok, so I am not all that street smart, but there is a good paper about the use of Machine Learning and SongSmith:

SongSmith is available at no cost (someone has to pay, but it isn’t you, your school or government):

  • Educators
  • STEM-D students
