The time has come for Indie Tools to present you with something that may not provide with a complete game authoring solution, but will definitely come in handy when creating any kind of game: Bfxr. An amazing and free to use (for both commercial and non-commercial projects) sound effects creation program, that is both ridiculously easy to use and versatile enough to cover most needs.
The program comes complete with a selection of ready to use sounds and all the sliders necessary to alter them. Interestingly, and even though Bfxr runs in a browser window and has been designed with user-friendliness in mind, it does come with a mixer, the ability to edit preexisting sounds, a good selection of filters and waveforms, persistent lists that help you organize your sounds and a variety of other features I'm not definitely sure I understand.
What I do though understand is that coming up with a dozen of original sound effects for your game should be a matter of minutes. Making them really good ones, on the other hand, is a totally different affair, but something even tone-deaf me can pull off given the time.
