Sound mods are by far one of the easiest mods to create, and it just got 10x easier.


Note: This application is approved by L4DMaps.

Introducing the simple yet powerful Sound Mod Creator, developed exclusively for the L4DMaps community. Using this intuitive tool, gamers and modders alike can quickly create sound mods in literally five seconds. Replacing in-game music is astonishingly simple; the program takes care of everything from converting your MP3/WAV/OGG/AAC/AC3 etc. files into a Valve-compatible format to even generating VPK files for sharing (optional). Users can package multiple sound mods into one sharable VPK or easily use the tool to cater to individual needs.

Using the tool is a no-brainer. It takes three simple steps:
1. Select your music file
2. Select a L4D2 audio file to replace
3. Click the "Add Sound to Game" button

What's the advantage? There is no need to worry about converting files to the appropriate bitrate and file format or the hassle of packaging the sounds into a VPK.

- Comes with an easy-to-use built-in VPK extractor.
- Automatic file conversion
- Custom L4D2 Sound Browser
- Debugging/testing your sounds
- Automatically manages your modded sound library
- Easily remove and add new sounds/music
- Automatic VPK generation to share your music (please note that it will not create sound caches, which is OK for most things)

If you decide to replace game music with copyrighted songs, don't share the content on L4DMaps! As you know, sharing copyrighted music is illegal. Keep it on your own PC please, and customize the music to your taste.

System Requirements:
Windows XP or later
Genuine copy of L4D2
>>> Run as administrator if you are on Windows 7 or Vista. <<<

UPDATE (8/14/2013)
If the stable build of Sound Mod Creator does not work, you can try the new Beta build (which fixes many bugs) below.

Download (extract the files and launch "Source Sound and Music Changer.exe")



TODO for Sound Mod Creator Beta:

* Generation of audio cache for VPK sharing

I say "no" instead of "yes" to those that say "pls" instead of "please" because it's faster to type.

Well damn, why hasn't this been done before? Hell, you really deserve a medal, LUKeM. Here, have this three-handled gold trophy along with some cheesey grammar from Big Rigs.

wow. Yet again I find myself in awe of your efforts here Luke; not to mention wondering, "why didn't I think of that .. just, why .." =)

Edit - out of interest, how would your app handle file length mismatches? would it clip or .. ?

Holy shizbiscuits, LUKeM, this is going to help a lot of people. Awesome work!

Looking forward to playing with it. And let me know if you'd like some server space to have it mirrored.

LukeM, you're the most badass coder/modder I've ever seen.

You should apply to valve (for real), they would be stupid to not hire you or not invest in your education so you can work for them in the future.


You're such a silly filly, going all pyro with your molotovs...
