Game Masters App for iPad/iPod – new version available

We’re pleased to announce that version 2.3 of our Game Masters Collection app for iOS is now available on iTunes. The app allows quick, convenient playback of Toxic Bag sound effects from your iPhone or iPad. The free app download provides sample tracks from each of the four Toxic Bag collections to experience, as well as additional sounds for free that do not appear on the original CDs. The lists can be rearranged, and tracks from the different collections gathered together into a Favorites list, perfect for a gaming session or party.

The free download provides over thirty sample sound effects, including a half-dozen each from the four collections. In App Purchase can then be used to activate the full list of sounds for an individual collection. Buy just the collections you want, and have them all available in a single app for playback.

 

What’s New in Version 2.3

You now have access to five more of our critically-acclaimed sound packs!

Eldritch Horror: Cult Ceremonies is a collection of 9 different mystical cult ceremonies. Now you can let your players hear that pesky cult eagerly summoning their icky dark lord to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world.

Fantasy: Dragons is a collection of 20 growls, hisses, roars and breath attacks. Now you can let your players hear one of the most iconic creatures of the fantasy genre!

June: Carrier War Price Drop and New Zombie Sounds!

• This month marks the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Midway. This battle was the turning point in the Pacific War. In recognition of this historic event, we have marked down our Sounds of the Pacific War collection 33%.

• Our new RPG sound product is Zombie Apocalypse: Farmhouse Siege: Two 3-minute scenes depicting a horde of the undead attempting to break into a small house. In the first track (“Stalemate”), they don’t break in; in the second (“Break-in”), they burst in during the final minute of the scene. We’ve included a separate one-minute scene of just that terrifying final minute as well, if you just want to jump straight to the devastation. “Stalemate” and “Break-in” can also be purchased separately.

• Our Free Sound this month is Zombie Voices, a moaning, groaning, wailing group of the reanimated dead.
