    Hello, I'm Scythuz and I am a professional freelancer who specialises in music and sound effects and ambience design. I have been working as one for roughly 5 years and have worked on games in various engines from RPG Maker & Gamemaker to Unity & the Unreal Engine. I've worked on everything from small game jam entries to fully fledged steam releases with over 100k copies sold.

    If you want to bring your game's audio to life, I'm your guy. I will take on pretty much any type of reasonable work within the above fields and you can hear some of my work right here!

    Past commissions/projects:

    Please check out my soundcloud sets page to see the projects that I am currently allowed to share work for, feel free to ask for examples in specific styles. Soundcloud sets.

    If you like what you hear, please consider hiring me!

    My prices are as follows:

    $15 per hour for all music, sound design and audio related work.
    OR
    $30 per minute for music work.

    Example pricings:

    Most simple pieces of 2 minutes long music will usually take 3 to 5 hours, that's just $45 to $75 per track. More complex themes, or themes longer than 2 minutes will cost more due to taking longer to create.

    Sound design work takes a lot less time, it's not unusual to see me do 5-15 sounds in an hour. Menu sounds are even quicker than this.

    Budgeting, inquiries and free sample tracks

    If you're not sure whether you can afford me or not, or simply want to compare my prices to other people more easily, please feel free to approach me with a budget, track list and specific style in mind (youtube links are great for this).

    I will happily help with any inquiries you might have and I may even have time to give you a short sample track snippet. Be aware that this would be an incomplete track of a short length (less than a minute) and only serves to give you a taste of what it's like to work with me, how good a fit I will be for your game and a way to gauge pricing more accurately if there is uncertainty.

    Thanks for checking me out, I look forward to working with you! :)

    My prices have now been cut in half, but don't despair! This just means that you're getting high quality music and sound effects design for just $10 an hour!

    @blacklemon That's a good question, thanks for inquiring! It means that I will charge $10 for every hour that I work on a track for. For example, I usually take 3 to 4 hours on tracks which aren't overly complicated (e.g. battle themes, big cinematic pieces), so for those tracks I would charge $30-$40 per track. If the client wants to set a specific hour range for each track (within reason) then I will happily stick to it and inform the client when I might need to go over the limit, or when I will finish quicker than planned. It's usually a negotiation that depends on what budget the client has available to them and how many hours it would take me to finish a track.
