Sound Libraries

There are many sound libraries used in game development, and Super Mario 64 is no stranger. Here, we've compiled sound effect libraries that were used for SFX, samples, and the likes.

Please note that any CD or pack that is still on the market will have links to where you can purchase them. The ones that are no longer being sold will be hosted by the site available for download.

Sound Ideas Series 1000 General (1979 Reel) & (1983 CD)

“Series 1000 General Sound Effects Library is where it all began at Sound Ideas.

These audio clips from the 1960s and 70s are a valuable source of vintage archival sound effects. From airplanes and animals to water, wind and zippers – the original Sound Ideas sound effects library is still in high demand – Series 1000 General Sound Effects Library.”
