The Warehouse (Free Sample Collection))

The Warehouse is a free collection of sound effects and organic percussion sounds created by Richard Gould. Featuring a set of eerie field recordings captured in an abandoned military storage facility, this unique free sample library packs more than one hundred spine chilling sounds ready for use in your next horror movie soundtrack.

The library was crafted by Richard Gould, a creative composer and talented sound designer from London, UK. You can find numerous examples of his brilliant sound design work on his official website, as well as his LinkedIn profile.

The Warehouse is a sample instrument containing a range of SFX elements recorded in a military storage facility in the United Kingdom. It includes wooden, metallic and glass elements. Many of the sounds were captured within the natural ambience of the facility. The sounds can easily be used as percussion elements as well as straight sound effects.

Creaking doors, rattling chains, spooky metallic echoes and glass scraping sounds are the sort of stuff you’ll find in The Warehouse. These samples can be used as scary sound effects, however most of them will also work very well as organic percussive sounds for layering on top of drum loops. My favorite part of the library are the samples of an electric lift, which almost beg to be used as foley robot sounds in a Transformers style movie.

Most of the samples were recorded with loads of natural reverb, perfectly capturing the spooky atmosphere of an abandoned military warehouse. Pair these up with our free Rain And Thunder sample library and you’ll be running away from your studio in terror in no time.

    I used some of these sounds for one of my tunes, the Sixth Seal! There’s a subsonic sound I used underneath the music to create the impression of massive earthquakes. Couldn’t have done it without you!
