Unsolicited customer testimonial

I'm a freelance game designer, and with my experience in the field I know that when setting the mood for a scene in a game, proper music plays a key role. Any popular game you see today will have well-timed music loops placed in just the right locations in order to be most effective. The music and loops found on shockwave-sound.com are exactly what I need to set the proper mood. Giving the player the feeling that the music sets is what makes a game great, and I intend to ensure that every bit of music I buy from shockwave-sound.com is put to its fullest potential. Great prices, great music, and an absolutely phenomenal site. You can expect me to be a returning customer, for sure!
