Sound Ex Machina offers the Halloween Spirit sound effects library as a free download from their website in October.
We are officially entering the Spooky Season, which means all sorts of evil laughs, horror ambiances, dark drones, creature screams, wind effects, metallic rattles, and so on are fair game for your productions!
Seriously, if you want to get that Addams family vibe going, Sound Ex Machina has just the right poison. The soundware maker gives away its excellent Halloween Spirit sound pack, which numbers at 1.2 GB worth of the spooky audio content mentioned above.
The free Halloween Spirit sound effects collection showcases all sorts of Halloween sounds that were cherry-picked from Sound Ex Machina’s paid libraries. That, and some unreleased sounds which have been lying around in the developer’s vault.
The free Halloween Spirit sound effects collection offers a wide selection of spooky sounds, carefully handpicked from our previously released libraries, as well as a few unreleased sounds from our vault. Inside, you’ll find creepy related sounds like evil laughs, horror atmospheres, monster screams, gore sounds, horse neighing, bell tolls, knives blade scrapes, metallic rattles and hits, a chainsaw revs, and more.
In addition to the 1.2GB collection of scary audio, the Halloween Spirit library contains fifteen Soundminer metadata fields, including descriptions, keywords, category/sub-category, microphone specifications, and more. This information is embedded in all audio files.
If you’re looking for free sound effects that are more cinematic, be sure to check out the 99 Sound Effects collection by 99Sounds.
