TWISTED STRING GESTURES
A modern horror library of mangled string noises. Violin stabs and screeches, pizzicatos, cello staccatos, double bass jetè, crescendos, strident string gestures, bowed noises.
TORMENTED METAL SFX
A collection of sounds from tormented metallic objects. Long pitch bends, scratchy rising elements, ear piercing screeches and even deep organic tones and vocal effects.
I’m always looking for the most twisted and tortured sounds, and the Stringache and Freaktion libraries from Silence+Other Sounds are right up my alley. Weird clomping pulses, slow grinding textures, absolutely mental stabs, and just crazy sounds with an organic footprint.
Both libraries are all over my score for the latest movie in the SAW horror franchise, so whenever we’re creeping through some dark tunnel you’ll be hearing Freaktion, and whenever we hear a jump-scare, you’ll be hearing some Stringache sounds for sure.

I picked this up to make some very unseasonal horror music during the festive period. Within minutes of installation these deliciously twisted sounds have breathed life into my dark horror cues. Along with Stringache, another superbly high quality library, prepare to make some sinister, fear inducing music. You won’t find sounds quite like these anywhere else!
The kind of SFX *INSTRUMENT* I am always looking for...
I have to echo the other sentiments…but first this is the kind of Kontakt INSTRUMENT that I always hope for and very seldom end up with; there’s a handful of developers out there who work in this territory and obviously hundreds more who provide WAV/FLAC content – but it’s always ideal to have the ability to manipulate and control them within a dedicated interface. Very high quality samples and I hope this is the first of many items to come from S+OS as I always prefer instruments vs samples alone. Further, the generous offers are a huge plus. Worth watching the walkthrough for sure just FYI!
Bought Freaktion for my horror/trailer tracks and it’s perfect for my purposes! Sounds are usable and extremely versatile. This library is very good itself, but the real fun begins when you try to manipulate the sounds by yourself! Great source of inspiration! Very cool! Highly recommended purchase!
