This is a version of a previous file I created (https://freesound.org/people/FunWithSound/sounds/394897/)that includes a gong at the end to make it more dramatic. The link to the gong sound is here: https://freesound.org/people/Veiler/sounds/209917/. It would be really nice of you to credit the user "Veiler" for their awesome gong sound, and maybe me for making the failure sound. But no obligations. :-)

While perusing Freesound for a nice and dramatic sound or two of failures, all the ones I've seen were pretty wimpy, so-to-speak. So I decided to create a few failure samples on a music-making program called Musescore. These are for big whopper failures (or "epic failures") and are very dramatic - they may also be used for a scary event in a film or play. It includes a short buildup and a loud dissonant chord at the end to create suspense and horror. For this project I used violins, violas, cellos, double basses, timpani, cymbals and brass. Enjoy!

Use however you wish. Feel free to credit. God bless!

    This is funny and effective, lending itself towards melodrama. Thanks for your work and for sharing it! :)
