New Horror Sound Effects Library for sound design is out now!

While living in Lisbon, Portugal I spent days walking around recording city ambience and enjoyed all the unique sounds the capital provided. However, the sounds that made my heart jump with excitement was from the other side of Lisbon called Cacilhas. To be honest I couldn’t believe the scary squeaking, tossing, turning sounds that this floating pier created!


If you’re a sound designer then I’m sure you’ll love these new sound effects!
All the people passing by me didn’t blink an eye at what I was doing except for two security ladies who wanted me to stop doing what I do. They had no idea what I was doing so I kindly asked them “do you know what I’m doing that you’d like me to stop?”
Their silence and puzzled looks explained it all. I told them that I heard the unworldly sounds that the pier created and that I had to capture the audio of it. That seemed to have done the trick because they wandered off and allowed me to continue capturing the squeaking sounds.
After I finished recording the floating pier I noticed a rusty grid winch a few hundred meters away. It looked like it hasn’t been used for at least 50 years or more It’s hard to tell how unkind the saltwater has been to the metal. With my contact microphone, I stuck it on several locations to get different perspectives while I spun the wheel.
The Equipment I Used To Record The Horror Sound Effects
I came twice to the area. The first time I only used the Zoom H6 together with the AGK C411pp contact microphone and recorded in 96kHz-24Bit. That way I could record everything with more intensity and no ambience.
When I got the Zoom F6 field recorder I knew I had to go back. This time  I used the AKG contact microphone again and the USI Pro. With the new field recorder, I recorded all files in 192kHz-32Bit. With this format, you can stretch the files as much as you want, play around with it and create something totally new!
All recordings are royalty-free and can be used in any of your commercial or noncommercial productions projects! I hope you have fun with these sounds!
