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
You can make your own unique horror soundtrack in no time by followng these
simple instructions......

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. When you hit play, you will notice that you can hear both tracks at the same

  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Move your sounds around randomly, import more and make a horror mash-up!
  7. 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

  8. 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.
  9. 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 our Halloween Horror album. At $9.95 it's a
lot of fright for your money and we believe it's the best sounding Halloween album
available. It's on iTunes, Amazon mp3 and most other online stores or you can buy it
