    Sound Effects in a sample library

    The director on the animated project i'm currently working on is looking for some off the wall sounds in the score. Some of the stuff he is looking for falls under the "sound effects" area, and I don't really have anything like it. Things like slide whistles and old car horns.

    I'm tempted to just tell him to get a sound effects library and put them in as sound effects, not as part of the score. But I thought I'd check and see if anyone knows of any sound effect sample libraries that I could load into Gigastudio and use along with my other samples that might have sounds like these in them.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jamie,

    I have the Sound Ideas General 6000 FX library and Hollywood Edge and would recommend these. The audio files can be easily loaded into a sampler and triggered from there. The neat thing about doing it yourself is you can incorporate the FX into the score in a musical way.

    Plan to spend some time selecting sounds though.

    If you want a couple of "one-off" sound effects perhaps try; www.sounddogs.com They have sounds for a couple of bucks each.

    If you are intuitive, you can make sounds,

    ok it's really one GPO solo tenor trombone playing two notes

    Sounds like a '95 Park Avenue.

    X-Treme Effects from Ultimate Sound Bank has some great sound effects in it. It's also a VST so you can just load it up and play the sounds along with your composition.

    All the very best,

    Slide whistles cost about $1.50 at toy stores.

    Sure they do, but the last time I checked, they don't come with a MIDI interface on them.

    Thanks guys--I will check out some of the libraries you mentioned.
