LabChirp

A program for creating sound effects for games, music, videos - whatever you want!
A readme and some example sounds are included to get you started.

Works on Windows (with the .NET Framework 2.0 or higher installed) and maybe other platforms if you use Mono.

Features

  • Multiple channels: Up to eight individual channels. All or any element of a channel can be copied to another.
  • Modulation: For vibrato and tremolo (pulsating variation in pitch and volume).
  • Envelopes: To shape everything the way you want it.
  • Waveforms: Make your own custom waveforms, or use any of the standard ones (sine, triangle, sawtooth, square, noise).
  • Customizable randomizer: For the lazy sound designer.
  • Customizable mutator: To randomize your sound slightly.
  • Batch save: If you are in a hurry and need a lot of sounds fast.
Here is a demo in mp3 format showing all of the example sounds and some randomly generated sounds using different presets.
