The Sounds of TSTO: Initial Release, Levels 1-20

I’m sick of theorizing what may or may not be going on…let’s have some fun! 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

New feature alert!

Recently in the comments, someone requested that we post the Sound Effects in TSTO.  We’ve done this on occasion in the past, particularly when something was so funny we wanted players to be sure to hear it (even if they played without the sound on), but nothing on a large scale.  I thought it sounded like a great idea, but I wasn’t sure about the best way to go about doing this.

I did some searching and found all the audio files available, and I knew there was no way I could post the entire sound catalog in one sitting. There are over 4,000 files of sound effects in TSTO, that’s audio overload for 1 singular post.  So I thought about it for a little while, had a discussion with Patric about it, and came up with a couple of fun ideas.

The first idea is a “The Sounds of TSTO” Post, which is the one you’re currently reading.  This will be a look back at TSTO Events/Updates of the past through Audio.  Sometimes the full update will be covered in 1 post, other times we’ll have to break it into 2 or 3 posts (just depending on how many sounds that update carried).

The second idea is a “Name that TSTO Tune” Post.  You guys should be familiar with this post since it’s already gone live.

So now, with that wordy introduction, let’s take a stroll down memory lane with the Sounds of TSTO in early 2012 and see if any of these sounds spark a TSTO memory for you…
