Frightful sounds set the party theme
Scary Halloween sounds are a great part of the holiday fun and there is no reason for overlooking the sense of hearing when you decorate the house for the party. These also help your house being the scariest one in the neighborhood for the trick-or-treaters.
Halloween sound effects should include sounds of things that go bump in the night, screams of helpless victims, songs of monsters, flying bat wings, and spooky howls. Such scary sounds can add the right frightening touch to any scene – whether it is your charity’s haunted house fundraiser or your own front yard that awaits the pounding feet of little tykes dressed up in all their finery.
There are a few different ways in which you can have some creepy Halloween sound effects ready for the party.
Get Halloween Sounds from your Local Store
A first option for you to have Halloween sounds ready is to head to your local supermarket, Halloween costume store or party supplier. There you can get some [easyazon_link cloaking=”yes” keywords=”halloween sounds” localization=”yes” locale=”US” nofollow=”yes” new_window=”yes” tag=”myhappyhalloween-20″]pre-recorded CDs[/easyazon_link] which include the most popular Halloween songs. A good alternative are DVDs of the best Halloween clips. Another creative option is using Halloween movies. CDs including the most frightening Halloween sound effects are also a good choice.
These pre-recorded Halloween sounds supports are available for a very affordable price. However they may include Halloween songs, clips or sounds that you don’t like. Or even worse: they might not to be seen by some guests (too many kids, or sensitive people). This might imply that you’ll have to sort all tracks out and create new playlists on your computer. Therefore, it is up to you to make a decision on what you plan to do with these materials.
Homemade Halloween-ish sound effects
A second option for getting scary Halloween sounds would be to record your own voice and sounds. This would add a very personal touch to the scene.
In order to create a CD including your own Halloween sound effects, you just need a recorder that you probably already have in your computer. If your computer doesn’t come with a voice recorder, then, I suggest to get one from the store.
Once you have your recording material ready, gather the family and ask them to talk, sing, scream, in order to create your Halloween sounds.
Naturally it might take some time to find the right scary and creepy sounds. But this excellent family activity will allow you to create your very own and personal collection of Halloween-ish sounds.
This option also allows you to add the musical background of your choice. You can also tell some frightening Halloween stories. If your family takes part to the elaboration of this activity, it is even going to become a very special Halloween treat. On Halloween eve, just let the CD play for the greatest pleasure of your guests.
Gather Halloween Sounds from the Internet
A third option to get Halloween sounds is the use of your high tech computer software and create them yourself. You can create different playlists of such sound effects right from the comfort of your home. All you need is browsing the Internet.
By running a search on one of the major search engines you fill find hundreds of different websites that provide people with what you are looking for. From free videos to scary Halloween sounds that you can download and burn onto a CD or a DVD. Most of these websites offer legal sound effects, music and video download. They mostly require a very small enter fee and you can get as many files as you want.
You can choose to play your music on CD if you have hi-fi audio materials. If you have a big plasma or LCD television at home you can play video clips. Michael Jackson’s famous “Thriller”, Marilyn Manson’s “This is Halloween” and Cradle of Filth’s “Ghost in the Fog” can make excellent creepy Halloween video clips to play at your Halloween party.
