    Everything I do is Japanese themed and yet I have no source for kabuki yells, loopable shimasen tracks, taiko loops ... nothing.

    Does anyone know where I can get some free to use or cheap to use sound effects and/or loops? Would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    Edit:
    All those "Far East" or "Asian" stuff that fills my ear drums with electric guitars and symphony orchestras... Not what I am looking for at all. I am looking for music and sound effects that you might find in a game like Tenchu... that time period, that style of game... I don't really know how else to put it... Traditional... not "Here is my electric guitar version of that traditional song"

    Thought it worth mentioning as most of the stuff I find is just that... electric guitars playing classic songs or people using shimasen's to try and be the next best heavy metal band. Not at all what I'm searching for.

    Thanks again

    By googling ロイヤリティフリーの日本の音楽 I ended up on audiostock.jp .
    https://audiostock.jp/

    As far as I can tell, it sells music for commercial/game use.

    The first sentence appears to be along the lines of "music selling marketplace audiostock sells royalty free bgm and music licenses".

    ....Actually now I'm not sure how suitable would that be.
