Making Easy Game SFX

Recently I've been watching Notch create a game in 48 hours on for the Ludum Dare competition.

At times during the Live broadcast he would use an additional application to create Sound-effects for his game. After a little searching I discovered that the app he was using was itself created for the competition back in 2007.

It's called sfxr & was developed by Tomas Pettersson. It's remarkable lightweight & really simple to use. Just one-click can generate a new random sound which can then be saved in the .WAV format.
