Atmospheric drones and ambiences – light and dark, beautiful and eerie, lively and serene

  • Crafted by iconic sound designer and composer Alan Howarth (Army of Darkness, Total Recall, Bram Stoker’s Dracula), the Cinematic Dread library includes eerie drones, textured atmospheres, and more ready-to-use sound effects to instantly add anxiety and otherworldly energy to your fantasy, horror and sci-fi projects.

    Right in time for Halloween, Cinematic Dread delivers 74 foreboding sci-fi and horror sound effects to induce fear and tension in your scenes – including buzzy alien swells, evil choral winds, swirling vortexes, ghostly underwater hums, demonic resonance and more.

    Add mood and texture to your designs with the authentic character of sounds direct from the imagination of a horror/sci-fi master. With Howarth’s influential specialization in both sound design and composition – evident in dozens of noteworthy credits including the original Star Trek films, collaborations with John Carpenter (Halloween II, They Live, Escape from New York) and more – this collection provides the perfect mysterious and sinister soundscapes for all of your supernatural sonic needs.

    Each sound file is embedded with rich metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with quick, intuitive search. Fuel creativity with descriptions characterizing each recording with both realistic depictions and emotional interpretations of each sound effect.

  • CCMS offers an unsettling blend of ominous drones, mind-bending sound design overlays, and gruesome bass layers. Perfect for modern psychological mystery shows, dark suspenseful slow-burns, chilling cerebral narratives, and off-beat dystopian scenarios.

    All sample packs within the Complex Cinematic Series contain:

    • SCENES: Samples labeled “Full Mix”
    • ALT SCENES: Samples labeled “ALT”
    • STEMS: Samples labeled “STEM”

    FULL SCENES: The result of combining all three included STEMs (Drones, Overlay, and Bass) into one fully finished piece ready to be imported into your project.

    ALT SCENES: Stripped down versions of the main scene showcasing different ways of combining the included stems for a less complex result:

    • No Bass: No action on the low-end of the spectrum while still retaining the life and recognizable elements of the Drone+Overlay combo. Perfect for layering booms, subs, hits, and pulses underneath without any masking issues.
    • No Drone: A personal favorite. Offers a detailed representation of the nuances in the Overlay STEM with a full low-end provided by the Bass STEM.
    • No Overlay: A more static version of the full scene without the rhythmic movement provided by the Overlay STEM. Perfect for intros with instrumental and/or vocal layers on top.

    STEMS: Each of the individual samples used in the creation of Full Mix and ALT scenes with simple yet effective labeling for identification purposes.

    Number of Files: 189 High-Quality WAVS (01:35:19)

  • Skillfully performed using glasses as instruments, Sonomar Collection: Crystal Sing features 46 clean, high quality recordings of ringing vibrations perfectly suited for your harmonic tonal needs. This unique collection contains sonorous ringing tones at various pitches as well as sharp squeaks and rubs. Use the raw recordings to add hypnotic resonant layers to your projects, or alter them to experience the depth of Crystal Sing’s harmonic range.

    To capture these sounds, sound designer and recordist Martin Pinsonnault (Big Little Lies, Dallas Buyers Club) and the Sonomar team used six different types of glasses including Ricard, cognac and champagne flute glasses. The tonal vibrations created by rubbing a wet finger along the rim of the glass were recorded in 192kHz with MKH-8040 microphones in ORTF setup. Each glass produced its own pitch and tone dependent on its size, shape, and the amount of water added. The rich high frequency response and minimal noise make these clean harmonic tones ideal for pitching and processing.

    Each sound file is embedded with comprehensive metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Enable creativity with detailed descriptions of each recording and their specific sonic qualities. Advanced metadata fields include translated French descriptions and additional info to ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.
