Editing Tips & Tricks

Nowadays, we all have access to audio editing software - whether it's inside your
usual media player like Nero, Roxio or a great piece of free-ware such as Audacity.
You can make your own unique horror soundtrack in no time by followng these
simple instructions......

   Open your audio editing software and import a spooky drone sound. This can
   be a WAV file, AIFF or mp3 file. Most editors support various formats.
   Now import another sound like a scream. You may need to create a new track
   for this but editors like Audacity will automatically create one for you.
   When you hit play, you will notice that you can hear both tracks at the same

   Select your scream sound and use an 'effect' to spice it up. This could be
   reverb (echo) which would place it in a large hall. Or anything you fancy
   If you want to chop your sounds up, select the scissor tool and chop away. But
   you must create a quick fade at the start and end of each section, otherwise
   you'll get a nasty click sound. Fades are very important when editing sound.
   Move your sounds around randomly, import more and make a horror mash-up!
   When you're happy with your arrangement, check the over all level isn't clipping
   (hitting red) otherwise you may need to turn some of the individual sound

   If you finished, hit 'Quick Mix' in Audacity or save / export your project in the
   format you desire. This could be a high quality WAV which would be ideal for
   burning a CD, or a smaller mp3 which is good for internet use.
   You're done! The more you do it the better you get. Next time why not try all
   the effects, try reversing sounds, pitch shifting them to monster level and
   maybe even using your computer's microphone to manipulate your own voice.

Of course, this is just the basics but it should get you started. If you really can't be
fussed then please consider purchasing one of our album. Starting from as little as $1.95
they're a lot of fright for your money and we believe they're the best sounding Halloween
album available.
