I combined several recordings of a wooden train whistle being blown, pitched them down and added some wet reverb. This chilling wind is the result.

This sound is NOT in the public domain. You MUST attribute/credit the sound if you use it. If you would prefer to not have to give attribution, then take a look at the attribution-free license.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:
"Ambience, Creepy Wind, A.wav" by InspectorJ (www.jshaw.co.uk) of Freesound.org

If any of these sounds have been of help, and you are feeling charitable, please do consider donating to Freesound to help keep the site running (a link is also on the home page). Any donations are greatly appreciated! And for more awesome sounds, do please check out my sound libraries or SFX store.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom recorder" on 5th December 2017, also using Cubase and Kontakt.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.

    Hey, I intend to maybe use this sound in a non-commercial very short movie about the loss of inspiration.
    If then, I will credit you and I could show you the finished work.
