  • Screaming Vol. 2 is a sequel to one of our most popular sound effect libraries to date. Unlike other libraries out there, we recorded small loop groups of voice actors covering situations where a single voice is not enough and a large crowd is too much for the scene. Furthermore, we captured extended performances in each file, giving sound editors the flexibility to use these effects in a large variety of situations. This collection contains group screams and shouts, covering everything from party and gig crowds all the way to battles and massacres making it a great addition for sound designers to their general audio collection and can be used in films, video games, TV productions and other projects.

    Our Audio Craftsmen recorded performances of our in-house voice artists using mono and stereo microphones to give you maximum flexibility. We have captured various screams and shouts of a TV audience, crowds at parties, gigs, sports stadiums, armies fighting battles, teens being massacred, people burnt alive, a crowd being attacked by bees, a group falling to death, people being trampled by an elephant, couples fighting each other and much, much more. We have also included additional variations of long and short group screams and sequential screams.

    All of the sounds are meticulously edited, meta tagged and UCS compliant, so you can find the right sounds you need and drag them straight into your projects. In addition, all the files are available in 24 Bit 192 kHz (without reverb) for further sonic manipulation and design (you can pitch and time stretch to create monster voices or high pitched creatures).

    We have used a variety of male and female voices, capturing different variations of almost all types of group screams needed for your projects, which saves you from hiring expensive voice actors and loop groups.

  • “8bit Game Madness” by SpillAudio consists of 163 8bit music loops inspired by different video games and arcades, combined with a touch of modern melodic and harmonic concepts. These tracks will provide your projects with a sought-after authenticity, rhythmic stability, and melodic diversity which could elevate your track to the desired level. This pack includes 23 distinguishable melody tracks which add color and articulation with a specific sense of originality.
