Freaktion Tormented metal SFX Horror cinematic sound library Artwork by Franz Russo

• 330+ Royalty-Free sounds • 24 bit, 96 kHz, .wav

• 11 Kontakt Instruments (Full v 5.8.1 or later required)


Freaktion is a collection of sounds from tormented metallic objects. We’ve experimented with friction mallets, superballs, bows and multiple stiff and sharp objects on a large variety of metals, such as large aluminium plates, tension coils, elastic springs, buckets and even custom-made stringed instruments.

The result is a finely designed cinematic library of unsettling strident noises, horrifying squeals, sinister squeaks and other effects that you won’t find anywhere else.

Freaktion is for sound designers and composers of horror cinematic music looking for new, unique sounds: whenever you’re looking to add a disturbing, ‘freaky’ character to your productions, this sound library will offer you a wide choice among long pitch bends, scratchy rising elements, ear piercing screeches and even deep organic tones and vocal effects.

Freaktion also comes with a set of original source recordings (130+ 96 kHz, 24 bit, .wav). These sounds have been treated with a very transparent process of EQ and de-noising , plus adding some light sweeteners to create more presence along the spectrum. You can use these sounds as building blocks to create your own sound effects.

11 Kontakt Instruments with a custom UI are included in this library. For more details scroll down to the Kontakt Instruments section.


  • 4 folders of high resolution and Royalty-Free sounds
  • A total of 330+ sounds (96 kHz, 24 bit .wav)
  • Rubbed metallic elements and surfaces (friction mallets, super-ball)
  • Bowed coils and springs
  • Horrifying squeaks and squeals
  • Eerie SFXs from stringed instruments built ad hoc
  • Cinematic tones and vocal effects
  • Construction kit of 130+ source recordings (friction mallets, bows plus any sort of sharp objects applied to surfaces, plates, strings, coils, metallic wires, springs, buckets and resonators)
  • 11 Kontakt Instruments (Full version 5.8.1 or later required) with a custom UI to further manipulate the sounds


You don’t necessarily need Kontakt to use the sounds. You can import every sounds in your DAW, in your favourite audio sampler, video editing software or in any software able to handle .wav files.

However, if you want to use our Kontakt Instruments, at least a FULL version of Kontakt 5.8.1 is required (Kontakt Play not supported).

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!

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!
