26 new and unique Mystery, Horror & Sci-fi Sound Effects added today2 min read

From Lynne Sound FX we have a new package of 26 truly spine chilling Scifi/Horror Background Sounds posted on the site today. These freshly recorded and created, grisly sound effects were created by a combination of human voices, synthesizers, and various effects and techniques to create 26 evil, malevolent, foreboding sounds.

These are not short “one-off” sound effects like hits, impacts, whooshes and such — these are lingering, extended sounds that will work better as background sounds for mysteries, crime and criminals, science fiction and dark content. They can be used as “bed tracks” or ambient sounds of dark and scary places, over which you can place music, dialogue and other sound effects.

The 26 new sounds make up the “LYN158 Mystery & Horror Background Sounds” package, which contains the following audio tracks:

  • Mystery Horror Sound 01 – Cold, Eerie, Turmoil, Psychosis, Confusion, Lost sense of reality
