Sonniss GDC 2020 free sounds download

Recommended Posts

https://sonniss.com/gameaudiogdc2020/

The Google Drive and WeTransfer links don't seem to have limits, the Box.Net only let you do limited simultaneous downloads so I don't recommend using them.

They do these GDC packs every year and are generally some great sound effects.

Got them since 2015 or so, but now I’m wondering what to do with them as they fill up so much space. Kick them all out? Only keep the last one (2020)? But even that one’s over 50, like me.

Sound effects you can never really have too many/too much.  So I keep them all -- right now that comes to 1.3 TB.  I don't use a SSD though to store them though.

I noticed they have a filelist. Is it possible to d/l that, search it when you need a sound, and then just d/l that one?

I go through them, because while there are some useful files (to me), there are a number of large files over 100MB each of things like outdoor areas or ambiences that I won't ever use.  So even just a quick go-through can remove many GB.   So for what I've kept of the GDC downloads from 2015-2019, they take up just over 2GB.

They could also be batch converted to 16/44.1 if you don't work at higher sample rates, which would save a lot of space, too.

Side note: While going through them, I also make notes on folders or sounds that I will use so, just so I can find them without spending time searching in the future.  I don't spend a lot of time on this, usually just making broad category notes, like weather, cars, weapons, gaming sounds, etc.  To each their own, of course.  I've just accumulated so many samples that I don't want to spend much time looking for something that I vaguely remember wanting to use.  :)  I recently had someone ask me for an "action packed high speed cinematic car chase soundtrack" to use in a funny song, and it was easy to find the samples I needed.

For organizing I use an older no longer available app, IFoundASound.  But I've started using ADSR Sample Manager.  It's as good (maybe better) and is free.  Then it is just a matter of making sure the file names have as much metadata as possible.

Use the Google drive and WeTransfer links.  Took me about 10mins total to download the whole thing.

Must have been the time you did it. For both those I am getting about 30mins per link to download.

I am on a gigabit broadband

Normally Google Drive links are pretty quick,but  I just checked and Google has temporarily blocked these files because they have been downloaded too many times.  I got the whole set very, very early this morning when it went live.  The torrent might actually be the only quick way at this point.  I think Google will reset tomorrow though.  Their links usually download very fast for me (I'm on gigabit fiber).
