sound effects for transitions

dvideo wrote on 8/3/2006, 6:39 AM
I recently posted a question asking about sound effects. I'm revising that post so it is more specific. What I'm looking for is sound effects that enhance transitions, or motion on something like text. Ex. the wooshes and swishes that go along with a text image zooming out. Can anyone recomend a sound library that focuses more on these sounds rather than things like nature, city, ........thanks

Go work for Fox for a few months and bring a tape recorder. I don't think there has been a single graphic on any of their channels that has ever appeared without being accompanied by sound.

Go to, and type in the word "whoosh" into the search field - more than 7,000 options pop up (admittedly, there's more than a few that are pretty lame). This site is a good resource for any sound effects you might be looking for.

One thing that has helped me with "whooshing" transitions is to speed up or slow motion the speed of the sound when editing, as a way to get the efffect just the way you want it.

Listening to Sound Dogs - I wish some of those whooshes were on my General 6000 sound FX cds or my Digital Juice Sound FX cds. They're not, dang it.

I just checked the Sony Sound FX library
they have free sample sounds

one of them happens to be a whoosh whoosh by 01.wav

Some decent ones ship with Cinescore, too. And if you can find the old Audio Anywhere product from Sonic Foundry, there was a whole disc of this material in it!

And while at Fox, teach them how not to set a camera on a set that is out of the 180 (Bill O'reilly) and the true meaning of the word Gawdy when it comes to too many ayers and graphics on screen. More is not better. :-)
