Star Wars Sound Effects Archive - A collection of SW sounds for use in Fan Edits (* unfinished project *)

Rather than including everything in one compressed file, I'm going to upload each different bundle seperately so that people have the flexibility of only grabbing what they want. I also won't just be linking to the originals as there's nothing worse than finding what you want on a forum, and following a link to something that's been taken down by the original uploaders. I'll be uploading to megaupload or something. One bundle (probably the one the least people have got to listen to) is being uploaded tonight after I painstakingly type out a track list. What kind of disclaimer should I put in the accompanying text document?

State that the effects are not for profit, and are to only be used for Star Wars fan edits and fan films in which the creator is also gaining no profit.

Uploading to megaupload right now. I need somewhere more permanent to host it and wondered if anyone knew of somewhere cheap/free.

It'll do for the timebeing though.

*twiddles thumbs*

EDIT: See first post for my first upload. Hope people like it.

Have just updated my first post to include the official soundboards. All in the relevant folders and converted to .wav to save people the trouble if they don't want to save, arrange, rename and convert the files themselves.

Both my uploads so far have been at 44.1Khz, 16 bit Stereo.

Can any audio/editing gurus tell me if it's worthwhile redoing them at 48Khz, 24 bit?

If you could look into this brash, that would be awsome.

 The video game Star Wars Republic commando comes with an amazing amount of sound effects. I used a ton in the Reign of the Darkside work. But since updating to windows 7, I cant install the program used to get the sound files. Which leaves me totaly screwed since I restarted work on it after my Hard drive crash a few months ago.

Directions on how to extract sound files from the game are posted on this page about half way down. If this is something you'd be interested in.

The amount of odd sound effects (like ships and background noise) is staggering.

Thankyou, bobgargia! I've been looking into whether the sound rips for that game are somewhere on the net already. Unfortunately, no luck. There are a lot of music game rips over at ffshrine, so it's likely they'll have extracted sounds as well.

I'll have to ask around! Eventually I hope to have all the game sounds. Thanks for the link! :-)

Its a pain tho to get the sounds cause you have to extract them one by one. Just a heads up.

 So unless someone was really dedicated, a complete download of just the sounds is highly unlikely

I had no problem extracting them all together by extracting the folder itself.

What is more of a problem for me is that the sounds aren't labeled.

I'm sure someone will have devised a way to automate the process somewhat. If you look over at ffshrine, there are guys there who extract game music (some of which happen to be unreleased cues) in order to build more complete Soundtracks than the official so called 'complete' collections. It's those kind of guys who will have devised ways to streamline the process I imagine.

If not, I have patience. I've actually been thinking of buying republic commando on Steam for some time but not got round to it yet.

I actually own the TPM game :-)

It really is awful.

I plan to extract all the sounds from it...when I find it.

Also, no matter how many guides i follow, I can't extract all the sounds from 'Behind the Magic' into a playable format.

I used to have the Republic Commando game, but then my brother in law borrowed, and it's never been seen again.

Brash, have you looked into the "Star Wars Trilogy CD-ROM Limited Edition Entertainment Utility" released in 1995? It has lots of clean effects and dialog. I have it if you need it.

You know of the rebellion against the Empire?

Already got it, Erik. :-) Though the sound quality on those is pretty bad....I'll probably end up including it though if some of the sounds/dialogue on there are unavailable in higher quality elsewhere.

I'll update my first post with the resources I'm looking for/looking to extract sounds from so that people can offer advice on how to rip, or even upload the folders if they've already done it themselves.

And of course, people can suggest more resources.

Hey doubleofive. As I just said in my updated 1st post, I used to have all the sounds from JK2, but don't anymore after wiping my hard drive. I only have the dialogue now, no sound effects.

If you have every single sound already ripped, that'd be really useful!
