Dark Ambient Tutorial: Drone Loops from Samples ( Ableton )

SOME TIPS TO GET SOUNDS FILES FROM VIDEOGAMES

1) search in the game installation folder. usually the sounds file folder are named “music” or “sounds”
2) for many games the sounds files are .wav or .ogg extension. so you just have to copy and paste the sound folder in an other path of your hardisk. this an obvious but important thing: if you uninstall the game, you also uninstall sound folder.
3) if you find a file format that is unknown for you, do a google search. for example the tool “Dragon UnPACKer” is useful fo .uax format. you can download this software here:

the dragon unpacker allow you to to view in the comprssed folder and to extract the files (or folders) that you want. it works like winrar for .rar archives.
4) there are games where sound files seem impossible to obtain ( at least for me)

to get sounds files from videogames is very useful and inspiring: the audio sample used in the most important games are very high-quality and original.
