NIIGATA, JAPAN – March 10, 2014. Tsugi, developer of AudioBot, QuickAudio and DSP Anime, is pleased to announce the release of DSP Retro ( ), a new software to create sound effects for your game, presented for the first time at Bit Summit 2014 in Kyoto.

DSP Retro specializes in the recreation of the iconic sound effects heard in old-style platformers, shooters or beat’em ups. Simply choose a category, select a type of sound, set the parameters and press play! Because DSP Retro is part of the “Dynamic Sound Packs” series from Tsugi - which use sound synthesis to generate sound effects instead of relying on fixed recordings - you can create exactly the sound you want!

DSP Retro also includes incredibly useful functions for game developers such as the automatic generation of sound variations and the export to game audio middleware (Wwise, FMOD Studio, ADX2, GameMaker).

With a playful graphic user interface (including retro game animations and various console skins), a powerful synthesis engine, and indispensable functions for both indie and pro game developers, DSP Retro makes the creation of sound effects for your game easy and fun!

The first categories of sounds in DSP Retro include weapons, characters, items, events and sci-fi and the software will be expanded with free downloadable content (sounds and console skins).


Tsugi provides consultancy, research and development services to the video game, animation and movie industries. The company specializes in smart tools and engines that make artists more efficient and offer them more creative options.

Typical clients include game studios, middleware companies, post-production houses and freelance professionals. Tsugi also publishes its own software solutions for the hobbyist and professional creators.
