Classic Arcade Sounds


These guys have put together an unparalleled archive of classic video game sound effects free for download on their website:

Classic Arcade Sounds
In late 1982, my best friend had a Sony TCS-310 Stereo Cassette Recorder. Audio cassette tape was the affordable recording media at the time and one wintery November day while on our way to the arcade 'Just Fun' in Ithaca, NY, we came up with the idea to record video game sounds.

Part of what makes the idea so wonderful is that they caught themselves on tape, back in 1982 coming up with the idea to do all the recordings:

The very idea was caught on tape too! (mp3)
We recorded video games from 1982 until 1988. Fortunately I managed to save all fourteen audio tapes of video game sounds and arcade ambience which were recorded from a variety of locations in the U.S.

They have split the recordings up into individual mp3s for each game:

Video Games I (1982)

There are 14 volumes, spanning 1982-1988. What an awsome project.
