Halloween is around the corner, so now is the perfect time to get your hands on this collection of spooky sounds.
The pack contains 40 abstract textures, 20 drone sounds, 100 one-shot jump scare elements, and 40 transition sound effects.
The sounds in this collection have been created using heavily processed string instruments, manipulated samples of field recordings, and cutting-edge synthesis techniques. The result is a collection of high-quality horror sound effects for trailers, video projects, etc.
“Scare Tactics is a collection of unsettling atonal textures, menacing drones, abstract hits, and ghostly transitions, providing all of the elements needed to construct convincingly creepy horror scenes full of dark ambiance, jump scares, and ominous presence. Prepare to unleash some serious Scare Tactics onto your audience!”
You can either use the sounds by directly adding them to the project you’re working on or even tweak and manipulate them further using your DAW.
Collections like these are useful not just for horror-themed music but can also add a level of depth and uniqueness to various genres of electronic music. For example, using a drone as a layer can add complexity to the melodic elements of your song.
Replacing the percussive elements of your drum kit with one of the one-shot samples can also yield interesting results and make your drums sound unique. How about layering your snare drum with an abstract horror hit to add texture?
Scare Tactics can be used in any DAW and since it is a collection of WAV sounds. You can also drop these samples into a sampler and process the sounds further to best suit your needs.
