    Eerie or ghostly sample wanted


    hi there

    I'm looking for a sample that I hear all the time on TV (usually in medical detectives series, but also any documentary that explores subversive / supernatural / evil / ghosts / murder themes etc

    What does it sound like?

    its a long continuous drawn out sound that slowly changes
    perhaps it is a slowed down sound such as scraping a Piano string or something like that?
    a bit like a door creeking open, but not so Cliche 'spooky'
    it sounds metallic - a bit like when a metal saw cuts into metal (only not so harsh)!

    Please help
    Its been bugging me so many years now!

    cheers

    Frank

    Cheers fella - these are pretty cool but not the exact one sadly.
    Its very very similar to the sample link I posted, but slower, smoother and more effects like delay and reverb wink

    Hey all - i have found the sample in a clip of The Cube on UK ITV1.

    (at 34 seconds after Philip Schofield says 'Go when you're ready!")
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlVcEElpJzw

    - but it's not a clean sample. I'm after the sample with no other sounds.

    Can anyone please help ??

    It's similar to a "reversed cymbal" ... http://www.freesound.org/search/?q=reversed+cymbal

    Something like that, but I am not shure now. Went through all Prodigy`s albums, and think I heard the glimpse of that sound in Breath

    Now I am lost.

    hey Timbre - you're So right.. it's very very close to that. It could be a slowed down cymbal!!

    After hearing your Cube sound, I knew what it was. It's a movie tension builder.

    Here's one on Freesound

    Hope that helps. Pete.

    PS, during my search, I also found out that you can download the entire BBC sound effects library for $4000 !!! :¬D

    Thanks for the info Pete. I'll have to look for sounds using that key term 'tension'.

    That should do the trick. Let us know if you find what you were looking for. I hope you are using Audacity to make and manipulate your sound files, it's excellent.
