That's great, thanks!

I understand how hard is to get good sounds and music that fits your game. It
doesn't help that there a lot of sites that claim to have an archive of "free"
sound/music, when in fact a large part of the files they serve are not free at
all. The Creative Commons Sampling+ license is also extremely
counter-productive. Together with Astrid de Wijn and Hans de Goede, we have
found DFSG-compatible replacement music and sounds for Blobwars I, but it was a
lot of work (and there is still room for improvement). For Starfighter, I will
try to see how far I can get with abcmidi and csound to create both sound
effects and music, which can be recreated from real source files.
