Creating Sound Effects for Path of Exile

You guys are pretty good, Andrew. :o
Hey, that's pretty good!
Creating sound effects is something I have thought about getting into. I have been playing a lot with both software and hardware synthesizers, and it is quite interesting some of the stuff you can make with them that are not musical at all! I have accidentally made a few little sound effects here and there I saved in case I ever need them. This is a great post and great insight for someone like me to read about. I would love to see more about the sound engineering used in my favorite game!
I am the world's best path of exile player, I strong I kill all monster with amazing power
Never really gave sounds and sound effects (and how much work they require) any thought.

There's something I have been wondering for a while. The sound of a dying human enemy (like the ones around the beach area in Act 1) is the exact same as that of Rogues in Act 1 of Diablo 2. Is that sound effect in the public domain somewhere?

EDIT: Here's his response on Reddit.
Nope! As soon as I saw the art come through the pipe, I knew that I'd have to invoke some nostalgia.
I attempted to create a similar sound from scratch. Happy to hear that it's doing the job!

I'm creating a game myself, it's great to have an understanding of the inner workings of an established company. Thanks for the dev blogs

Do you speak goat?
I'm wondering if you used your own sound engine before the sound system switch you did (i don't remember when).
I don't know if it's new but their (FMOD) indie free license is quite nice. Even if i've the feeling if you feel the need of this engine, you're probably with a development budget above 500k$ but i may be wrong.

Interesting article, thanks o/.
