If you’ve already exhausted Sound Shapes’ existing audio toolbox, then you might be tempted by the three new sound packs drumming their way onto the PlayStation Store this week. Fresh sample sets include the Acoustics sound pack, Drum Kits sound pack, and 8-Bit sound pack. Each audio bundle will set you back $0.99, and will come with new Beat School stages and Trophies. They’ll be joined by the Curved Terrain pack, which will be available for free.

With over 15,000 levels already created in Sound Shapes, developer Queasy Games has been quietly concocting a way to showcase the best ones. Its solution will materialise later this month, under the guise of the Community Milkcrate initiative. This program will see the best user created stages arranged into albums each based upon a specific theme. Developers, composers, and “entertainment industry luminaries” will get in on the action next year.

You can sample the new sound packs courtesy of the trailer below. Let us know if you’re planning on picking up any of the content in the comments section. We’re particularly tempted by the promise of new Beat School stages.
