Sound Effects and Music Index


#1

Hey, everyone! I’m transferring my index of sound effects and music from the old forums to here. Hope this helps! - Margaret

Recently, I made an index for all of the animations available in the INK Style. Then, it hit me: I should do the same thing for sound effects! I hate having to scroll down that long list on the side of the Writer Portal to look for a specific sound. Personally, I’ve always wanted to be able to just do a simple search for a sound effect that I was trying to find for use in my stories. The Writer Portal does not have a feature like this, so I decided to start this thread to hopefully help people out. Below are all the sound effects and music available on the Writer Portal, in alphabetical order. Certain sections will be cut off, for example: ambient sounds, music, etc. to make that type of sound effect easier to find. Everything that doesn’t fit under a specific category will just go under Sound Effects. Please let me know if you think anything is in the wrong category!

To search for a specific sound effect on the list, you can do CTRL + F on most computers or COMMAND (⌘) + F on a Mac computer to bring up the Find tool. With this, you can type in a keyword to search for a sound effect containing that word on the list.

Hope this helps

You’re an angel. I’d be completely lost without this.

Hi, I remember there was a sound that we could use to stop the music in a dramatic way, It sounded like you were putting the music or CD on breaks. I’ve been scrolling and looking for a hour but I can’t find it.
Could you please help me out?


#4

(If you haven’t found it by now.)
I think the sound you’re looking for is record_scratch_stop

<3

Happy to help

I’ve been looking for so long but I can’t seem to find the sound effect of a heart monitor in a hospital room? If anyone knows it, it would be great help to me! Thanks :slight_smile:


#10

Hey Dona,

int_hospitalroom is the sound of the heart monitoring beeping.

Hope this helps !


#11

Do you any good music for an inside of a castle?


#12

Does anyone know the sound of the heavy heartbeat? I’ve been looking for it for hours.


#13

isn’t it heartbeat? I don’t think there’s a heavy heartbeat.


#14

Thank you! This was soooooooooooooo helpful! :heart_eyes:


#15

How do you play a sound?


#16

In your script, type “sound [soundname]” and the sound will play!

If you would like the sound to repeat, type “music [soundname]” and the sound will play repeatedly.
