    Group of horses: massive sound of gallop


    Hello dear freesound users!

    I was wondering if any of you have any sounds of a group of horses galloping. I need a very massive sound, like in a movie when you see a lot of horses running from far away into you.

    All the galloping sounds which I searched here is not really what I am looking for. I need a very massive sound.

    Hope anyone have something what I am looking for smile

    Best regards, Julia

    Hello, can you describe the scene or context?

    Its unclear the exact scale.

    Cheers

    hey!
    I have tried that, but it sounds like they are running from one side to another.

    Head-Phaze

    I need all of horses to run in the center against me.

    Like this: http://vacay.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/galloping-horses-e1356885102816.jpg

    and then to hear them coming near, like this: http://www.theora.com/images/horsesGallop.jpg

    So you need an army or horses running directly towards and gradually closing in on the viewpoint?

    This is extremely difficult to get right, and will take a considerable amount of time without actually recording the real thing happening.

    My apologies, but I can't help you. I don't have the time.

    Try experimenting with lots of individual gallops like copyc4t suggested. Its how I would create the sound personally.

    Good luck

    Good, if the ones you found sound good together, distance and direction can be simulated/corrected when mixing them; how long should the whole sound last? Which are the sounds you liked best, regardless of stereo position?

    Also, another little tip:

    It might be worth experimenting with a delay effect on individual gallop tracks. Set the feedback to a very small amount and set the time according to the speed of galloping. This will increase the scale, so you don't need a hundred channels.
