I'm working on a game, and I'm not the best with finding or making sound effects. I found a bunch of great ones, but they all seem distorted. There's a small echo and it seems a bit electronic-like. How would I begin to clean this up to make it sound somewhat normal?

I believe this audio pack was ripped from a video game, which is probably why they all sound so strange.

Here are three samples:

I think it would be better to find other sound effects... Or, better yet, make them yourself. Cleaning those sounds will probably be a lot of work for a non ideal result. Additionally those sounds may be protected by author´s rights and you could have legal problems using them.

Enjoy the process of your sound effects creation!

  • I agree; you need to scrap them and find others, or even try to recreate these ones. Maybe they are intentionally distorted demonstrations and you have to pay for the usable files.
