Gisborne based audio production company Castles Music Productions announces the opening of a new online audio shop and library next month.
Castles Music Productions (CMP) is noted for creating the music and sound effects for the hit computer game "Rugby League" (known as Stacey Jones Rugby League in New Zealand) released on 12 December 2003. CMP's new on-line audio sound effects shop and library will offer a range of affordable sound byte sets with royalty free music to be added later in 2004.
"After years of recording custom sounds for various projects we have created a huge original sound effects library," says Simon Castles, Director of Castles Music Productions.
The on-line shop and library is aimed at website producers and developers and will offer a variety of regularly requested sound effects for use in Flash, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, computer games, TV, film and radio programs.
"This is a great opportunity for anyone who needs professionally recorded royalty-free sound effects for their projects," says Mr Castles.
Included in the on-line shop are audio effects unique to New Zealand such as native bird sounds formatted for use in menu screens or Flash presentations. There are also plans for a range of sound effects designed especially for game developers which will include: pick-ups, power-ups and weapon sounds.
