Top 10 audio effects – October 2019
People always enquire what are my favourite Top 10 sound effects.
At this point, I scratch my head, gaze off into the distance and try and recall a favourite. Thinking often leads to long pauses in silence as more than one sound effect springs to mind.
So in the spirit of the famous British music charts – Top of the Pops. Here are my top ten sound effects in no particular order.
My top 10 favourite sound effects
- Coastal storm with wind sea and swirling leaves
- The sound of a smashing light bulb
- Victorian musical watch sound effect
- Popcorn popping
- Stormy day
- Urban street noise
- Suspense feedback
- Alien whoosh swirl
- future-incoming call
In summary, I really enjoyed creating all these sounds. I particularly enjoyed smashing the light bulbs, who wouldn’t. The popping glass sound will make a great sound effect for future projects.
