I've googled it, searched it on this forum, but I have not gotten the results I needed.

How do I make creepy/onimous sound effects?

For instance, this video uses some sources that aren't even creepy and makes it sound demonic.

ignore the source, but it was the best example I could find.

The thing I noticed is that some of the sounds were extended in length, giving sort of a wheezing effect.

Some techniques for creating "creepy" sound effects that I know of are:

- Lowering the pitch

- Adding a reverb effect for ambience

- Slowing things down with a lower pitch, either slightly if you still want to understand it, or to a huge extent for a creepy background noise

- Reversing a clip, applying an echo and/or reverb type effect to it, and then reversing it again. This was used in the audio clip you gave

- Applying a very slow Vibrato effect simply going downward/slower. This is done by making the vibrato graph simply a slope from the neutral point to a lower point, and lowering the frequency greatly until the Vibrato lasts for the whole clip

- Playing the audio on multiple layers in multiple different pitches at the same time.

You can also download paulstretch and you can also stretch out the clip which will either make it sound like zen music or some type of creepy silent hill type of thing.

One trick i like for making creepy/eerie sounds...

-Copy the sound clip and overlap it so that it matches exactly (do this once or twice)

-Pitch each copy up from three to eight semitones (using Vegas)

-reverse the sound clips and/or stretch them out.

Works good for voice/jingles ^__^

*Ear rape

*Coupling (having two copies of the same sound track, but one has its pitch lowered/raised by 1 semitone, creating a disonant sound). Moving one layer so that the result is an echo effect can also be used.

*phaser/flanger effects

*slowing it down

*Using the EQ so that only three of the lowest bass sliders are all the way up, everything else is at 0 dB, causing it to sound muffled and distorted.

Using visual effects lens flare (for glowing eyes) and invert/negative helps add to the effect.

Pretty much what GameBop said. Here's an example that worked well.

At 0:59, I reversed Morshu's quote, added Reverb and then I reversed it again. It caused some sort of a phantom-like sound effect.

Some things I like to do:

use distort, bring the middle line all the way up to the upper-left corner and lower the volume a bit.

It'll sound really static-y, then lower the pitch, and suspense ensues.

Protip: combine all of these effects in different combinations for added creepiness. Just play with them till you find something you like.
