Stretch Goal 1 - $6,000 - Music Pack

If funding reaches $6,000, we'll be adding a 5-track music pack to the collection. These tracks will be music-only, and focused around themes for use in your campaigns. Backers will have the opportunity to suggest track ideas, and everyone will have the chance to vote on which ideas we go with. And of course ... the music will be available in both surround and stereo formats.

"The tracks are truly impressive. The ambience is high-quality, detailed, and expertly arranged, and the music is, in a word, perfect." - Michael, Vol. 1 backer

Overview

Building upon the success of Ambient Soundscapes Vol. 1, this is the second project by Silver Arrow Audioworks, designed to accompany the tabletop gaming sessions of game masters and players worldwide. This volume offers a new set of immersive, rich, and detailed soundscapes authored in full Dolby Digital 5.1 surround. (Stereo versions will be delivered to backers as well.)

Here's an audio montage showcasing some of the settings from Ambient Soundscapes Vol. 1. This is an example of what you can expect from this next volume in terms of quality and diversity.

We're also creating a new product alongside Vol. 2 - the Fantasy Soundscape Construction Kit. This kit is a large collection of audio and music layers (from environments, to events, and even emotional colors) that you can combine to easily craft your own unique soundscapes. Created to be seamless and simple to use, all you'll need is your imagination - no knowledge of audio production is required. Your creations will be yours to keep forever, for your gaming campaigns or even for casual listening.

"I've found Vol. 1 to not only add greater immersion for the gamers around the table, but also as inspirational backgrounds. They really helped to bolster the creative process when putting a gaming session together." - Greg, Vol. 1 backer

Be Creative

This kit is a library of audio and music layers, specifically authored to be mixed, matched, and tweaked to create new and imaginative settings for your games. The contents of the kit will help you experience the stories in your games on a deeper and more personal level. Some examples:

  • Environmental Sounds and Events
  • Weather
  • Animals and Creatures
  • Abstract Tones, Textures and Auras
  • Music Layers and Subtle Melodies

The Construction Kit is available through the higher reward tiers. It will be delivered in OGG Vorbis format (for seamless looping) and will include a video tutorial that shows you how to start creating with the included content. You don't need to know anything about digital audio - this tutorial will demonstrate the kit to you and guide you through building soundscapes in just a few easy steps. You'll be able to focus on creation and inspiration rather than technical hurdles and obscure knowledge.

Here's an overview video that shows how you'll be able to use the kit (expand it to full screen to get a clear desktop view.)

Amplify Your Immersion

Sound and music can bring a tabletop gaming session to life and provide a deep emotional connection to the characters and events in your game worlds. As a backdrop, the Ambient Soundscapes collection is designed to be supportive and not distracting. Each track will help you experience your stories in a more meaningful way.
