Freaktion Horror cinematic sound library



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.

Been searching a LONG time for dedicated metal library for horror design, and this is more than what I was hoping for. Fantastic sound quality and the parameters/GUI allow you to even further shape your desired sound. In addition to the amazing Relict and Stringache, this is for sure another hit by SOS!

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!

Easy to use and sounds great! Perfect for Action/Sci-fi/Horror trailer!
Can’t wait to use it in my next projects.

A cool bunch of sounds which can be useful for stings or to add to other pieces. Good sound quality with lots of tweaking avaiable
i would of liked a few melodic instruments with 3 or 4 octave range etc so we can create some creepy melodies with but i guess that’s not the aim for this particular library but hope some are included in future.


Response from Silence+Other Sounds

Hi Tom! Thank you for your nice words, if you’re looking for playable tonal elements, we have a new release called ‘Freaktion’ which includes also some more melody-oriented Kontakt instruments. In case you are curious, here’s the link with the demos 🙂 Thanks again! https://silenceandothersounds.com/products/freaktion/
