For my 666th upload, here's something rather chilling - several hundreds of people screaming. Created by stitching together nearly 200 of my own recordings of roller coaster screams at Disney's "Expedition Everest". I took the result and pasted it in reverse for added discomfort. Reduced frequencies below 500Hz due to the roller coaster rumbling. A lot of unfortunate cicada clutter in the higher ends, but should probably blend well with other screaming sounds.

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 "Zoom H1 recorder".

Originally recorded on 9th and 10th August 2017, and edited together in Audacity on 15th March 2018.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.

    A good and necessary sound, for your 666th! Thank you for making it available. I will be using it in the mix for my story, 'Satan's Circus' appearing on my Youtube Channel this weekend.

    Hi InspectorJ, by the way... ever noticed or was it made on purpose?!

    adding all the numbers describing the lenght in time of your sample :)

    ironically gives the O so lucky numero... 7 !

    01:22:191 = 16 = 7

    (if you ever wonder why have I come to notice this. Well, pretty simple: number 2 drag a masterpiece of my attention during te last couple years. Starting as the obsession of a friend of mine. It quickly became my own, as he would share it with me!)
