The Top 10 Epic Sound Effects for Your Summer Blockbuster
The season of spectacular filmmaking is upon us, so why not use some of our newly added epic sound effects, looping tracks, and exclusive audio in your summer project?
As part of Creative Rewards Month, we’ve expanded our library to include more of the audio tracks and sound effects that our members have been asking for. With more scifi and horror effects, monstrous animal sounds, ambient background environments, combat Foley, and dramatic stingers, we’ve made sure that our subscribers have the right audio at their disposal to add oomph to their blockbuster score.
Here’s a curated list of 10 Epic Sound Effects from our new Creative Rewards release to help your summer film stand out from the rest.
1. What was that?
Whether your script calls for aliens, dinosaurs, or supernatural monsters, make sure you have the right sound effects to get your audience’s hearts pounding.
2. The truth is out there.
It could be a transport beam, a laser cannon, or a hyperdrive engine; whatever you use this deep space sound effect for, it will give your audience a truly otherworldly experience.
3. Sounds like trouble.
Cinematic stingers and impact sound FX like this sequence of metallic hits are vital to punctuating suspenseful trailers, action-filled chase scenes, and gut-wrenching cliffhangers.
4. Don’t cut the yellow wire.
What’s a summer action film without a few bombs and explosions? Use this massive explosion effect and others like it to stun and dazzle your audience.
5. Pedal to the metal.
Use this rumbling car effect and others like it for gripping chase scenes, last-minute rescues, or daring car heists.
6. I’ve got a bad feeling about this.
From the discovery of a cataclysmic doomsday plot to an imminent confrontation between superpowered mutants, ominous ambient background tracks like this one are essential to proper foreshadowing.
7. The city that never sleeps.
Whether your project features a caped crusader or an alien menace looming above the skyline, use ambient street noises to make cities come to life.
8. A dark and stormy night.
Set the scene for a villainous plot with an shattering thunderclap or rumbling storm audio loops.
9. Choose your weapon.
Although the weapon doesn’t make the hero–or the villain, for that matter–using the right Foley sounds can make or break an important combat scene.
10. Feel the need for speed.
It doesn’t matter if you’re featuring a futuristic motorbike, a flashy racecar, or an alien spacecraft. Make sure your project goes zoom with the right revs, wooshes, and zips with our newest sound effect additions.
