The House Is Alive Horror Sound Effects Library

Our free sound effects library The House is Alive is available for download. The library contains a variety of creaks, squeaks, moans, groans, and other useful sound effects for your projects. This is a raw source sound library, so the sounds have little to no processing and are great for doing additional design work.

These sounds are great for scattering around a scene or location to create an immersive soundscape. Design haunted houses, pirate ships, old warehouses, and haunting atmospheres.

Soundly Sound Effects

Each file is at least 96k / 24-bit or higher, contains meta-data, and is named following the UCS naming convention.  Each file has multiple takes making this a good library for video game developers or sound designers who need variations.
